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.


We have a place out in the country which we call Pickle Creek Ranch. I was turning over the seed tray in the henhouse one day, and Blackbird, our rooster, attacked me with great force - like BAM - hit my hand. I was out of the henhouse in a flash! Talk about being beaten up by a bird!

I ran to the porch bleeding and to my horror discovered a talon sticking out of my wrist! I was bleeding profusely and saw that he had also torn a chunk out of the top of my right hand and punctured me between my fingers.

My other half, Jan Paul, took me over to the sink, flushed out the wounds, and put my hand in ice water while I hung over the sink hyperventilating. Maybe I'm a wimp or something, but this totally FREAKED ME OUT. I almost passed out!

It really hurt and became VERY swollen, so much so that you couldn't see any wrinkles in-between my fingers or anything. But I was thankful that I could at least text with one finger to document while laying on the couch! LOL. I was still in shock though.

Luckily I keep some essential oils at the ranch and dropped Peace & Calming directly on the wounds, layering Lavender around the wounds (but not on them) and alternating the oils a few times that afternoon. I had to keep it bandaged in-between, but the swelling finally reduced somewhat, even though I could not use my hand for a few days. I continued to layer the oils.

What really impressed me was that I was expecting to see bruising, but I had NO bruising except for on my knuckle where I didn't realize he had hit me there too! And there was some very faint bruising on the underside of my hand where I had not applied any oils. This to me was a true testimony to the power of the oils, and I am so glad I had them on hand out in the country!

We have since returned Blackbird to his original owner; we did not have rooster crockpot stew! He was a beautiful rooster and a great protector of our hens, but I could not trust him anymore. I invite you to LIKE my Facebook page at http://on.fb.me/1dfnoym, where I documented this painful but amazing story as it played out. I would love to hear from you!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: wound-/-gash-/-injury — "The methods of aromatherapy were applied sitz bath or soap application using essential oils with Lavender, Myrrh, Neroli, Rose, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Orange, and Roman Chamomile.... [T]hese findings indicate that postpartum aromatherapy for perineal care could be effective in healing the perineum."Link
2.Associated topics: swelling-/-swollen-/-puffy — "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
3.Associated topics: wound-/-gash-/-injury — "DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link
4.Associated topics: wound-/-gash-/-injury — "Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link

6.Associated topics: wound-/-gash-/-injury — "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

Due to its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties, it is thought to prevent wound infections and to play a role in reducing pain by lowering inflammation.... Lavender oil is known to have antibacterial, antifungal, sedative, and/or antidepressant effects.... In addition to its antimicrobial effects, the anti-inflammatory analgesic properties of lavender oil have also been emphasized... The use of L. Angustifolia [lavender] is particularly recommended in chronically infected wounds due to its immune-stimulating and antimicrobial effects. There are also reports that lavender oil reduces scar tissue."Link
8.Associated topics: wound-/-gash-/-injury — "Topical 5% tea tree oil is an effective treatment for mild to moderate acne vulgaris.... Tea tree oil has broad-spectrum antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activity in vitro.
