jelly fish sting

I believe you will enjoy and benefit from the following testimonial. I have had MANY MANY situations with friends and family, where YL Essential Oils have helped us through a medical crisis. Scorpion stings,( pain gone, NO swelling after using Purification) cuts, burns, sports injuries , headaches, bruises, recuperating from surgeries ( with minimal scarring, no infection, faster recovery) , accidents and more.
On a beach in Hawaii, I was able to offer essential oils to a parent consoling a very young child who had just been stung by a jelly fish. He stopped crying right after inhaling the oils ( Trauma Life, Lavender, Purification is what I had on hand), his father put the oils on the wound, the pain subsided and the redness and swelling went down, until they were able to get him to a medical facility. I had just heard from a local person that morning that local jelly fish stings could be very serious and even cause death in certain individuals. From many years of study about the oils, reading about them and hearing how the oils worked for others, I knew what to do. Many folks are able to avoid a potential tragedy just using the oil they have in their pockets. It helps to be well read, but if you are just beginning, trust your intuition, if you offer assistance.
When my son, Christopher, was younger and fell on a sprinkler head ( severing most of his ear) I was able to stop the profuse bleeding IMMEDIATELY with Trauma Life oil, which avoided him going in to shock, and stabilized BOTH of us as I drove to the emergency care. The medical people were astounded that he was so calm, not in pain, not bleeding, and told me he MUST have had ' professional treatment' before he got there. After the surgery to re-attach his ear, they predicted a very high possibility of infection and swelling, in addition to scarring. I used various oils on him , post surgery. NONE of these predictions came true.
I mentioned this story in a documentary several years ago (" Ancient Secrets of Life") and a person who watched it , told me her mind quickly flashed to that advice after a large HORSE FELL ON HER ! Cherie Ross says that her immediate recall of my story, as well as the person running to grab the Trauma Life, possibly saved her life. She was able to stay alert and calm until help arrived.
Hoping you never have to go thru trauma such as the above, but I recommend YOU DO carry YL essential oils with you, you never know when YOU might be in the right place at the right time to help someone out.

barefoot in the park

I was walking barefoot in my back yard and stepped on a palm frond. The spike from the frond, went into the side of my foot penetrating over an inch in and breaking off. The spike was completely embedded in the side of my foot. Since I could not pull the frond out, my first thoughts were, I will have to go to the emergency room, sit for hours, pay a lot of money, have someone cut the frond out, stand a chance of having an infection because of the open wound or have muscle, nerve and tissue damage due to the cutting.

The trip to the emergency room was only a fleeting thought. My next thought was "What would Gary Young do?" I remembered hearing Gary say that Thieves would actually draw out splinters. I doused the area with Thieves and Purification and within a few minutes the swelling around the area went down and the end of the spike began to protrude from the wound. I was able to remove it with a pair of tweezers. Immediately, it began to bleed profusely. After the bleeding cleaned the wound, I poured Helichrysum directly onto the wound and the bleeding stopped right away.

At this point the initial emergency was over, but the pain was so severe that I could not walk on my foot. I then called my mom, who along with my dad are Silvers in Young Living. True to form, the first words out of my mom's mouth after hearing my story was, " Are you taking pictures? This will make a great testimony!" My response was "NO!". Of course, she then reminded me to check the Essential Oils Desk Reference (EODR) for oils and supplements that would address pain, nerve damage, and muscle damage. Now looking back, I really should have taken pictures. The change between day 1 and day 3 was really amazing!

In addition to being very glad that I had an EODR to use for reference, I was extremely grateful that I had followed Debra Raybern's advice at a recent seminar and purchased the Aroma Complete kit. Instead of going down the list that the EODR suggested saying, "No, I don't have that. No, I don't have that.". I was able to pull out the oils that I needed immediately and didn't have to get on the telephone to see if someone else had the oils or order the oils and have them shipped overnight. I can't impress on you enough that you need to have your emergency kit available at all times!

I used many oils such as Cypress, Idaho Balsam Fir, and Lemongrass to help with the swelling and inflammation. I used PanAway, Clove and Relieve It to help with the pain. I also took NingXia Red and Inner Defense to help with inflammation and make sure no infection developed. I took BLM and Sufurzyme to aid in the healing.

I had to stay off my foot the rest of the day. The next day, I stayed at home from work and kept my foot elevated. By the second day, I was able to go to work on crutches. Even though my foot was extremely sensitive for the next few days, I was able to go on with my normal activities. The wound healed with no infection and virtually no scar. I did not have to take a tetanus shot, antibiotics or spend hundreds of dollars going to a medical facility. I also only missed one day at the office. I was so grateful that I had the EODR, Gary Young's teachings and the Young Living products when I needed them. Thank you Gary Young and Young Living Essential Oils!
