In June of this year I went to California and visited a beach with my sister. I am a fair skinned redhead so sunscreen is ALWAYS in my outside regimen. I made sure my kids were covered and then applied sunscreen to myself. Hours later I realized a horrible thing! I had been severely sunburned on my legs and back. For some reason the sunscreen didn't work! I was 8 months pregnant at the time as well, so I was worried. I immediately began drinking water to combat the dehydration and help my skin. I applied Aloe with very little relief! The pain was off the charts!
The next day I realized the extent of my burns ran all the way from Superficial to Partial thickness bordering on Full thickness burns. A friend of mine noticed my burns and suggested a mixture of doTERRA oils. She gave me the name and number of someone that did doTERRA, Sarah!
She put together a mixture of Lavender, Peppermint & Frankincense in a spray bottle for me with instructions to apply it every couple of hours! I was desperate for relief and so I was very faithful with the application. Within about 6 hours I noticed a significant difference in how I felt, how my legs looked and how much the swelling had gone down!
Within 24 hours I was mostly pain free and could actually move and function! I continued to apply the mixture faithfully and within a few days the color in my legs began to change back to normal. My blisters were reducing themselves as well. And the pain was all gone! Within 1 week ALL of my blisters were gone and the color in my legs was mostly normal.
Now I recommend that mix to anyone in a similar situation. I loved how quickly my legs healed and how quickly I was given pain relief from using them. I am learning more about the oils and the benefits of using them and I am so grateful for them!
