After my last surgery I had started to use Lavender on my surgical scars. I was hoping it would get rid of the redness of the incistion scars. I was amazed at how fast the scars were fading. They were significantly reduced within 6 weeks of putting the oil on morning and night.
This was 6 months after my surgery and the scars were so much better after 6 weeks then they had been in 6 months. The Lavender oil did what I was hoping it would do but what I was not expecting was how the Lavender oil got rid of the deep built up scar tissue on my breast! I had about 1 1/2" thick scar tissue that ran along my incision scar on my left breast and some pockets were deep scar tissue was forming. They disappeared!
I couldn't believe it. I am a massage therapist and had been doing friction and rolling techniques to reduce the scar tissue buildup, but it was really thick and could not be rolled. It was what we call glued down.
After using the Lavender oil for about 8 weeks, I could roll my skin on my breasts as easily as I could roll the skin on the back of my hand! I was amazed. That was my confirmation on how the oils can work for us. I am now passionate about the oils. I carry them with me and use them daily.
