Buyer beware.

Back in high school, I was playing softball and slid into home plate. Gravel dug into my knees in long grooves. I have had dark lines of scar tissue ever since -- 27 years!

Without even intending to fix the scars, I rubbed Rose Ointment on my knees, hoping to get rid of some dry, itchy skin. I put it on for 3 days, and then I went away for the weekend. Then I put it on for 3 more days the following week.

As I was driving my kids to camp, my knee was really itchy, and I scratched at it. Then as it kept itching, I looked down quickly. I was sad to see that my knee looked worse than usual. The long, dark scars seemed raised up from my skin.

I scratched some more, looked back at the road, and then looked back at my knee. It was then that I realized that the scars were being scratched off! As I kept scratching my knee, the long, dark scar tissue was lifting up and falling off! By the time we got to the camp, my knees were smooth again after 27 years!

I can still see some faint lines were the tissue used to be, but the skin is so soft now. I have been rubbing my knees and showing them off to everyone!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: scars — "[One] method employed for wound healing is the application of lavender oil. Due to its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties, it is thought to prevent wound infections and to play a role in reducing pain by lowering inflammation.... Lavender oil is known to have antibacterial, antifungal, sedative, and/or antidepressant effects.... In addition to its antimicrobial effects, the anti-inflammatory analgesic properties of lavender oil have also been emphasized... The use of L. Angustifolia [lavender] is particularly recommended in chronically infected wounds due to its immune-stimulating and antimicrobial effects. There are also reports that lavender oil reduces scar tissue."Link
2.Associated topics: scars — "[A] pulverized mixture of four herbs including Agrimonia Eupatoria (A), Nelumbo Nucifera Gaertn (N), Boswellia Carteri (B) [Frankincense], and Pollen Typhae Angustifoliae (P)... was first described in Chinese canonical medicine about 2000 years ago for treatment of various trauma disorders, such as hemostasis [bleeding], anti-inflammatory, analgesia [pain], and wound healing, etc.... [W]e showed that local ANBP treatment not only significantly enhanced wound healing by relieving inflammation, increasing formation of granulation tissue, and accelerating re-epithelialization, but [it] also reduced scar formation by decreasing collagen production [and] protuberant height and volume of scars and [by] increasing collagen maturity.... [Results show that ANBP] promot[es] wound healing and alleviat[es] scar formation, which may be an effective therapy for human wounds at the earliest stage."Link
