In the past 3 days I have seen three people I know who have all skinned their knees. These three people are from age 50 to 10, so age is not a relevant topic. It happens to everyone. All were dealing with the scab on the knee getting tight and uncomfortable.
So I go and get my Young Living Essential Lavender Oil. All three had relief, and no sting. The scab relaxed and allowed the irritation to go down.
A few days before, my 11 year old dog did something to her eye, I think she was poked by a blackberry thorn, they are wicked. It swelled to the size of a ping pong ball. So I applied lavender around her eye. NOT in it, around it. An hour later the swelling was down considerably. I put the dogs to bed and when I got up in the morning she was still slightly swollen and so I did it again. An hour later it was completely gone.
The next day, she had a sty in her other eye, so I applied Lavender around her eye 3 times, it took care of it in 2 days.
Real, Living essential oils do heal. You can check out my oils on my link above, or email me and I will order them for you. I order once a month but you are able to order from me any time by setting up your own account. I can walk you through that and help you with the oils you could start with. I would recommend starting with the Everyday Kit.
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) has a fresh, sweet, floral, herbaceous aroma that is soothing and refreshing. Because it is the most versatile of all essential oils, no home should be without it. Lavender is an adaptogen, and therefore can assist the body when adapting to stress or imbalances. It is a great aid for relaxing and winding down before bedtime, yet has balancing properties that can also boost stamina and energy. Therapeutic-grade lavender is highly regarded for skin and beauty. It may be used to soothe and cleanse common cuts, bruises, and skin irritations. The French scientist René Gattefossé was among the first to discover these properties when he was severely burned in a laboratory explosion. Lavender may also be used to enhance the flavor of foods. Lavender has an approximate ORAC of 3,669 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.
