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.

Saturday's are a work day on the farm. Last fall we were cutting down trees and splitting wood. Our nephew Brandon was running a chain saw and, accidentally, it made contact with his knee. He came to the house and asked for oils - we go thru lots of Melrose on the farm with us and the animals.

After seeing his knee, this needed more than just Melrose. I realized how severe this was - we could see his knee cap- it was cut to the bone. Everyone thought stitches were needed. Brandon didn't want to go to the hospital. He did promise me he would diligently treat this twice a day for at last a week, then daily after that until healed. I also gave him NingXia Red and Inner Defense to take internally.

This is what we did - we started with Thieves cleaner diluted in water to remove all the grease and dirt. A plastic tipped syringe was used to get under the open skin. We used Melrose and Thieves topically. Also applied Peppermint, Cypress, Wintergreen, Frankincense. Finally we topped it with Tendertush and a bandage.

This happened late morning. Brandon actually went back out to work (without the chainsaw). He said he didn't have much pain. Before he left for the day, we applied all the oils again. After only a couple hours we could see the new tissue forming. It was already healing. I have a series of photos showing the progression - on day 48, Brandon had just a small scabbed area. The rest of the wound was healed.
