Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

One of my teenage granddaughters, who is fair-skinned, came home with a severe sunburn. She had had sunburns many times before, but this one was really bad. It was so painful that she actually started to panic and shake all over.

My daughter-in-law remembered that she had a bottle of "Peace & Calming", so she had my granddaughter rub some in her palms and then breathe it in. Immediately she calmed right down.

My son, meanwhile, had called me up and asked about which essential oils to use. I remembered that Lavender is good for burns, but I also quickly looked it up in the essential oils reference book and then recommended Lavender, spikenard, and Valor, (I knew his wife had the "everyday oils", but wasn't sure if she had any others.) They owned the "nine essential oils" starter kit, and so they had Lavender and Valor, along with several others.

They immediately applied the Lavender and Valor. Because of the situation, I was concerned that this was not an ordinary sunburn, and wondered if they might need to go to the urgent care center. I'm pretty sure we were all praying about it as well.

The next day I inquired how she was doing. Here is the response I got:

"Mom, she's doing so much better! I mixed the Lavender, Valor and Peppermint essential oils in a spray bottle with mostly water and then she has been spraying it on herself as needed. It has really helped her!"

I thank God that they had the oils on hand, and that they were able to find out how to use them.
