On our February 2009 Aromatherapy Study Retreat at Shambhala Ranch in Mendocino county (CA), I accidentally burned my finger during my meal prep shift.
Followed standard first aid protocol: Cooling the skin immediately with an item from the freezer, but could tell the burned area was going to sting and be sensitive for a few days anyway. Thank GOODNESS for Susan Betancourt’s astute suggestion to use a drop of TRINITY™ an awesome ‘proprietary’ blend I had created and given her as a gift.
ONE drop – Did the job! The sensitivity & discomfort were gone immediately…as if I hadn’t been burned at all. WOW! were Susan and I amazed…and impressed at this easy DIY Rx for minor burns.
Susan had another interesting idea – to use ‘just a touch’ of TRINITY™ on the tongue, next time either of us get burned by drinking or eating food that’s too hot. Bet that would work wonderfully! The idea hadn’t even occurred to me to use essential oils that way…and I burn my tongue often enough on food that’s too hot to eat. (I and others have used TRINITY™ for burned lips & tongues since writing this post and it does work superbly. German Chamomile is excellent, too.)
TRINITY™ was researched and formulated as a supportive blend for skin cancer, but hasn’t been used by anyone dealing with that issue to date. We’ve discovered it soothes & helps clear herpes outbreaks quickly, plus it’s excellent for acne, burns, cuts, scratches & other minor skin wounds.
COMMENT: The small 3ml bottle goes a long way. Susan keeps it with her, using some nearly every day, and it lasts her about 4 months.
