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.

My husband was in a freak accident and had 1/2 of his big toe crushed off. Doctors were unable to reattach the toe and had to surgically close the wound. Post surgery, his foot had to stay wrapped for two weeks.

I applied Frankincense and Lavender as close to his toe/foot as I could around his bandages and even dropped some onto the gauze. I also applied those oils to his other big toe!

When the doctor removed the bandages for the first time after the two week mark, he was highly impressed with much had taken place and seemed quite pleased with the oils.

From then on, we applied Clove (with carrier oil) for the pain and Frankincense, Lavender, and Helichrysum. My hubby never took antibiotics and managed the pain with the Clove oil instead of having to rely on pain meds.

After 6 weeks, the doctor released him and again was highly impressed with the results! My husband's partial toe now has such beautiful looking skin on the stump. The toe has mended incredibly well and has left virtually no scar. Praise the Lord once again!

It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
