I had an amazing experience with lavender oil. I had a basal cell carcinoma on my chest (Skin cancer). After it was removed, I developed a keloid (overgrown scar tissue) which was very itchy. I went back to the doctor, who injected me with steroids, to minimize the scaring. Unfortunately, he put too much in and the skin atrophied all around the area, leaving me with a hole about the size of the end of my little finger, in the middle of my chest. I went to a new dermatologist, who said that further treatment might make matters worse. I had heard about the healing properties of lavender so wanted to try it. I put it on twice a day for two weeks, and the entire hole "closed up". My skin was completely smooth with no sign of a hole at all.

I went back to the dermatologist to show him. He admitted it was a miracle, but because the "experiment" was not done "scientifically", he could not say for sure that it was the lavender that did it. But, I can!
