Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I had a cosmetic surgery procedure and was told by my doctor to use Mederma for the scarring after about three weeks. Instead, I decided to try using essential oils. For 3-4 times a day, I massaged a couple drops each of Helichrysum and Lavender into the incisions. When I returned to see the Dr. for my 3 month check-up, he couldn't believe how great I was healing, especially since I was in my mid-40's.

I then advised him I wasn't using Mederma, but instead I used essential oils. He was stunned and asked about them, saying he would be telling his other patients!! It's now 2 years later, and my regular Dr. just commented that my scars look more like 8 or 9 yrs old instead of just 2 yrs!
Remember--consistency is key with oils!!
