My son attended a bonfire a few days ago and someone threw a butane lighter in the fire that still had some fluid left in it. It exploded and blew up in my sons face. The hot fluid went up his nose and burned the inside of his nostrils, his upper lip all around his nose, chin and neck. He is SUPER lucky it didn’t get in his eyes.
Well, he got home and woke me up in severe pain and said “fix me Mom, I’m not going to the emergency room”.
It wasn’t funny at the time but he NOW believes and totally TRUSTS in the essentials oils, that it is second nature for him to ask me for topical solutions to whatever problem he’s having. I had him gently wash off all the burned areas with cool soapy water to get any of the remaining lighter fluid that may have been sticking to his skin and then lavender (essential oil) was applied.
The initial application did burn a bit, but he knows it works and a small discomfort for healing!!! Within two days, his lips peeled and the new skin emerged and is beautiful, and he can now open his mouth to eat. Inside his nostrils are covered with really nice thin scabs and healing very quickly.
We also applied some aloe in-between the lavender applications to keep it moist so the scabs wouldn’t crack and bleed.
Definitely 3rd degree burns on his lips and nose. As always thank you for supporting and being a part of this shift in consciousness as we move more towards a closer relationship with our Mother Earth home.”
