Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions.

When I was a toddler, I had a bad case of chickenpox that damaged my skin. As a result, when I was a teenager, my acne made the scarring worse.
As a young adult, facial scarring is terribly unattractive, so I started to use Frankincense and Myrrh essential oils. I would alternate between coconut oil and castor oil (both have amazing skin benefits by themselves, which are amplified with essential oils) at night. I would put 2 drops Frankincense and 1 drop Myrrh neat (undiluted) on my entire face and neck and then would follow it with either the castor or coconut oil.
I saw results immediately. Within about a month, people I talked to did not believe me when I told them that I used to have horrible scarring. Even I have to look extremely close to see the faded marks! All I can say is that I wish I had tried it sooner.

|1.||"[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|
|2.||"[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|
