Essential oil of lavender speeds up healing of cuts and burns noticeably (it is almost like magic for healing burns, and practically eliminates the pain, after a minor bit of initial stinging). Just a drop of it three or four times a day is enough. It also will help make a bruise go away faster, and used together with Tiger Balm, is very effective for muscle spasms. I always keep some on hand. You can find it a health food stores and some other places like Whole Foods.
