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.

A few months ago, during Thanksgiving weekend, my 6-year-old girl tripped and fell while on the escalator. She was wearing a skirt so her shin was not protected. She cut her shin on the edge of one of the steps creating a gouge that was less than a quarter inch long and wide like one of the teeth of the steps, and maybe 1/16th to 1/8th of an inch deep. She cried and she was bleeding like crazy.

I immediately carried her to the bathroom to put her leg under the water to bleed more. Then I put a few drops of PanAway and Lavender on it. Lavender to help cleanse the wound and stop the bleeding. PanAway to help the bruising, stop the bleeding, and for the pain. She said it hurt but she said it was the oil...which I knew was the Peppermint in the blend. The pain of the cut was gone. I didn't have V-6 on me to help dilute it.

She was crying and crying. A nurse who'd been shopping heard the commotion and came into the bathroom to help. I told her as well as anyone else who asked if I needed assistance if I wanted it. I said, "No thank you, I have my oils." And my daughter refused everyone and just wanted my oils...and me. The only help I really accepted was one Band-Aide.

Anyway, the nurse was trying to get her to stop crying. She explained to my daughter that she will have a nasty bruise...a rainbow of a bruise. She said it will first be as dark as the purple shirt she was wearing. Then it'll turn blue, then green, and so forth until you reached the other end of the rainbow spectrum. While she was telling my daughter this, I wanted to tell her, "NO, it won't." I knew she won't experience the dark bruising because of my other experiences with my daughter with bumps and these same oils as well as other testimonials from this site. I knew we may not even see the bruising.

And, the next few days, I was right. She did have a nasty looking bump...I mean you can see the lump and feel it...but it NEVER became as dark as what the nurse told her. In fact, you can barely tell there was a bruise just by looking at it. I wish I got the nurse's contact info or ran into her so I could've shown her.

All I did was apply the Lavender and PanAway for the next few days. Then I continued to put Lavender and Frankincense to help with the scarring.

It hasn't been four months since the accident but her cut healed...maybe in the first month. That little gouge filled in and was never infected. I haven't been diligent lately with the Lavender and Frankincense so the scarring is taking it's time going away.

I try to never be without my case of oils. I always want to be prepared as I was this day for an emergency.
