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 have used oils for wounds and the scars on myself, and also with women in my care, as their midwife. There were several that used the Melrose oil blend on their caesarean section wounds, or the old scar.

Just a small drip or two from a 5ml sample bottle, which usually lasted until birth time. The oil was rubbed on, followed by the heat of the palm held over the wound or scar, with the oil on site for a minute or more, from the thirtieth or thirty-second week of pregnancy.

As the oil was held, the women added their own thoughts and feelings of intention: like the letting the body use the oils within its energy system in that area of the body, superficially and deeply.

Willing to let go of past trauma of the caesarean birth, aware that the tissues beneath that area can maintain health and strength for a planned vaginal birth ahead. Oils placed on the body, I believe--or sense, may work in the energy field and bring benefit to deeper body tissues and organ levels in some way.

When either the women or my self had Young Living Rose oil on hand, one or two drops of Rose was added to the small bottle. Rose oil carries the highest vibrational rate, of the oils, as I understood when I bought a bottle, and is said to represent a frequency of love. Love frequency is excellent around pregnancy, birth, and babies.

One young mum had a keloid scar that had formed after her second caesarean section birth, and because she thought it was ugly, it was also affecting her sense of self worth. A vaginal birth after two caesarean sections was her birth plan for baby number three, and she wanted to do what she could to encourage a strong previous scar, ready for the vaginal birth of her baby.

Two drops of Rose in eighteen drops of Melrose was the blend this mum chose to use. Several small drops of the mix was rubbed onto her keloid scar daily, and sometimes more--because she loved the aroma and thought baby did too! Amazingly, her keloid scar faded away to a fine white scar that was also patchy--and in some places the scar had completely gone!

Needless to say, resolution on the outside gave this mum confidence that her scar on the inside was also healthy. When I felt her tummy deeply to feel where baby was positioned in late pregnancy, her 'scar' area tolerated it extremely well. Proudly, she did go on to birth her baby successfully, a vaginal birth, or VABAC, without a third caesarean!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: pregnancy — "The methods of aromatherapy were applied sitz bath or soap application using essential oils with Lavender, Myrrh, Neroli, Rose, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Orange, and Roman Chamomile.... [T]hese findings indicate that postpartum aromatherapy for perineal care could be effective in healing the perineum."Link
2.Associated topics: scar-tissue — "[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
3.Associated topics: scar-tissue — "[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
