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.

While my husband was stooping to speak to our 3 year old, our 7 month old son decided to suddenly fling himself backwards onto a concrete floor. I heard the sickening smack as his head connected, and ran over to find a large bump already developing on the back of his head.

Before we got in the car to drive to the ER, I applied Cedarwood and the PanAway oil blend, as well as Lavender and the Valor oil blend to his head, neck and spine.

We were only a block from the ER, and when we got there, I put on more oils before going in. By the time we were called into triage, there was no sign of a bump or even redness. There was no sign he had been hurt at all, and showed no pain or discomfort!

We decided it would be more traumatic to subject him to x-rays, so we took him home, since he was absolutely fine!
