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.

My dermatologist recently removed a few "suspect" moles from my back. For one of those moles, he decided that more needed to be removed. When all was said and done, he left a 1-1/4" long incision that required stitches. As I was leaving their office, I was given a prescription for an antibiotic cream, a prescription for pain killers, and an appointment to return and have the stitches removed.

When I returned for that follow-up appointment, the nurse took one look at my back and began to scold me for delaying the removal of my stitches. I was dumbfounded. I told her that I was there at the exact time they set my appointment for. She scoffed and checked my chart only to find that I was being truthful. She then looked at my incision again and asked me if I had used the antibiotic cream prescribed. I sheepishly admitted that I had shredded both prescriptions and had used Young Living's Lavender oil on the incision twice a day. She was very surprised. She said that she'd never seen an incision heal so quickly. She felt that I should have been there three days earlier to avoid her having to DIG the stitches out. Needless to say, she dug them out and I continued to use Lavender and then Idaho Balsam Fir to finish the healing (from the digging) and hopefully minimize the scarring. I'm still working on it, but I have to say that the scar looks much better than I ever thought it would. It's pretty faded and I hope one day gone!
