After a serious burn, a certain Monsieur Gottefosse turned to lavender oil. He knew about the oil’s healing properties before, but when the burn began to heal and mend rapidly, the cosmetic specialist knew he needed to turn his laboratory studies to this amazing oil. He became an essential oil expert, and his sad accident became the avenue for relieving our own accidents.
When you are burned, be sure to cool it off completely first with running water. This is your first priority; oil will only insulate the heat. Once cool, apply several drops of undiluted lavender oil onto the burn. One drop per square inch of burn is a good ratio. Cover the affected area with something clean. Reapply as often as needed, keeping the injured area dry and clean until the burn is completely healed.
