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.

My friend (who is diabetic and has other past medical comorbidities) was bowling. Through circumstance, he had his finger get caught and had a major portion of the pad of his finger sliced off. Despite very good efforts at the lanes, there was no relief to the bleeding. He insisted on finishing the games and then at home cleansed the wound and continued to apply pressure. The bandages continued to become saturated and require changing.

I was able to stop at his house, although this was over 4 hours after the event! I removed the bandage, and immediately heavy bleeding started. The oils of Geranium and onycha were the two I chose to have with me. I used Geranium for assistance in clotting the blood and preventing infection, and I used onycha for initiation of the healing process to restore lost tissue. It was about 10 PM for this dressing change. I applied Geranium several times and then applied pressure to try to stop the bleeding before the application of onycha and the new dressing (which was a bit of a pressure dressing also).

In the morning the wound showed much improvement, and it had not continued to bleed through the night either. It was left open to air for a while after applying oils again, and bleeding had ceased with evidence of the healing process starting.

He did end up going to see a medical doctor, who said it would be just fine. There is no redness and no signs of infection. He will continue to apply oils as the finger continues to heal and restore to its original state.

So thankful for these oils and what God gives us... naturally.
