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 in my home office when the light was flickering on and off and stayed off. I thought the bulb is most likely loose I will finish up and check it in a few minutes. Now just so you know, the lamp is a standing lamp with the bulbs pointing up out of 3 tulip looking mantels.

So I went over to tighten the what I thought was a loose bulb, it was not loose and was very tight. I thought, well that is strange, let me check the one that is on. Yikes, that was hot, and my forefinger started to blister.

I grabbed the Lavender oil as it's supposed to help with burns, right? Poured on the Lavender but it still burned. YEWWOW! I have to stop the burning. So I got out a glass put in ice and added a little water and soaked my finger in ice water. I alternated that with putting on Lavender. I did that for several hours.

Finally the burning sensation stopped and I was able to sleep the night. I figured for sure the next day it was going to hurt really bad. It didn't, it was only a little tender and I noticed the blister didn't seem like it was oozing, it was solid.

The next day it seemed completely healed and the blister adhered back like it never happened. I was amazed. Keep in mind only Young Living Lavender will do this. Do not try this with any other companies Lavender, as they often add other chemicals to make the product stretch further.

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
