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 two large skin tags surgically removed from my neck. The smaller of the skin tags bled excessively and both left large scabs.

I topically applied three to four drops of Melrose blend (neat) three to four times a day for 3 days. For the first day I soaked a q-tip in the oil and then applied to the scabs. After the third day I started to top off the Melrose blend with Rose Ointment. Both areas where the skin tags were removed healed quickly and with no sign of infection.

Melrose is definitely one of the oils I keep in my first aid kit! Note: about eight hours after the first application of Melrose the tissue surrounding the scabs lost the puffiness and redness and calmed down so that the healing could begin.

2.Associated topics: surgery-(Post-operative-recovery) — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
