My electrolysis client came in for a treatment and she had very serious chemical burns from a perm on her forehead and ear. I don't know the degree of the burn, but I do know that she had gone to the emergency room and was treated there 3 days earlier. When I saw her, her burns looked very red and scaly. I created a blend of 1 oz organic aloe vera gel with 5 drops of lavender angustifolia - Bulgaria and 8 drops helichrysum italicum. I applied it before she left my office and gave her the blend and recommended that she apply it before bed and in the mornings until the burns healed. She called me the following day and reported that her forehead burn was almost completely healed and her ear was much improved. Her ear took 3 days to heal. No scarring either.

Lavender does accelerate burn healing.....
Back about a year ago, a friend gave me some lavender.....
Burned myself just back of the knuckles on my right hand.....applied the lavender....pain went away and healing happened in short order...
Now.....have had the same result with lavender on other burns...
Essentially (pun) I covered the burn with the Lavender and waited to see what would happen....so I guess that would be a neat application...
