Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

After a basal cell cancer was removed from one side of my nose, I've had two "repair" jobs by a plastic surgeon. The final surgery was three months ago, and the result is rather rough scar tissue which will gradually "mature" over at least six months. My surgeon recommended a silicone gel, applied twice daily, to enhance smoothing and flattening the tissue, hoping for an aesthetic scar outcome.

I've seen little change in the affected skin so far and recently asked my Young Living mentor if she could recommend any essential oils to assist in this healing. She suggested I try "Gentle Baby" and "Rose Ointment,": which I've been applying at night while still using the silicone gel by day.

In the two weeks since starting these two products, there's been a noticeable improvement in the scar tissue. It may well be that after three months, what is happening is the effects of the gel beginning to manifest; but I feel that the addition of "Gentle Baby" and "Rose Ointment" is playing a significant role. Especially as this scar tissue is in the middle of my face, seeing this recent improvement is very encouraging.
