Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I was frying fish for dinner and was putting the pieces of fish in the bubbling oil when I accidentally dipped the tip of my middle finger in the oil too. The pain was so horribly intense even though my finger went in and out so quickly. I felt a direct visceral punch to the gut the pain was so bad. I was also terrified I had severely damaged my digit.

I stuck my injured finger under the cold water tap for a minute or so to cool it down, then gently dried off the water and applied a high quality Lavender oil directly onto the burn. Already there were blisters forming and skin raising in a white lumpy bump.

I kept applying the Lavender every few minutes, a couple of drops or so. I did this non stop for a couple of hours. The pain actually stopped after 15 minutes, but if I didn't keep applying the Lavender the pain would return.

This was at 6 pm. I applied the Lavender continuously every few minutes until about 8 pm and then every half hour until I went to bed at 11 pm. I woke up at 2 am with a sharp stinging burning pain on the fingertip and added some more Lavender and went back to sleep.

I woke up at 7 am. NO PAIN.....NO BLISTER!! NO SCARRING!!! All I could see was a small pale white mark where the blister would have been.

Two days later even the pale mark is gone and NEVER any more pain, or itching, or discomfort. The burn has completely healed!!

Many blessings to all.

1.Associated topics: burns — "Burn Healing Potential of Nigella sativa seed oil in rats.... Nigella sativa L. (Black cumin) has shown a broad spectrum of pharmacological effects like antipyretic [fever reducing], analgesic [pain reducing], anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial.... The present study suggests the burn wound healing action of seeds may be due to anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of major compounds in the oil."Link
2.Associated topics: burns — "Melaleuca Alternifolia [tea tree] Hydrogel... was compared with tap water as a coolant following application onto a fresh, deep, partial-thickness hot water burn.... Effective cooling of the burn wound and an increased rate of wound healing was achieved by both repeated tap water compresses and by immediate or delayed application of Melaleuca Hydrogel. Cooling is an effective means to reduce tissue damage and increase wound healing."Link
