One thing essential oils won't do… keep a fireplace mantel from crashing down on your arm!! BUT... the oils sure helped with the bleeding, swelling and bruising!
We were taking the mantel down. I was helping, holding the left side just to steady the box as he worked his way across hammering and prying the top part up (thinking the box part was still attached to the brick). NOT!! When it fell, it was very heavy and it hit my forearm bone with great force snapping a bit of a cut into my skin. This mantel box was made with MDF board and plywood, very heavy.
I ran for the oils and put Peace and Calming on the cut and around the area that was hit. Then I layered Lavender on top of that. I was expecting a big goose egg like I got one time, when I fell in a boat (that was fun!). The oils have kept everything in check while still tender and healing.
These two oils are in the Everyday Oils Collection and I can help you buy at a discount. Visit www.picklecreekranch.com, Young Living #1176855
