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.

While on a cruise to the Caribbean, I was badly sunburned on my neck, face, arms, and legs. I applied pure coconut oil as soon as I noticed the burns, since it was what I had on hand.

When I got back to my cabin, I remembered that I had brought a container of whipped coconut oil with some Lavender in it. I applied it everywhere I had a burn and let it soak in for a couple of minutes. I did the same right before bed. The next morning the red was almost gone.

I have also found with other experiences that applying Lavender oil diluted in coconut oil has prevented pain from developing... if applied early on. I now keep a homemade Lavender salve on hand to use on scrapes, burns, cuts, etc.
