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.


The other day an overly friendly dog leaped on me several times and scraped up my arms. I did not realize how badly until later when I saw the terrible welts and scratches. I was not happy as I know how easily I scar, and it takes years for them to go away. I have learned to be very careful not to get scratched by my patients. This one was not even a patient. UGH!

I wish I had thought to take photos, as this was a really bad series of 4 or more major 6-inch superficial lacerations of the skin on EACH arm. It looked bad. Imagine a scraped-knee kind of thing in stripes down your arms.

I have used Neosporin (it has antibiotics and coconut oil in it) in the past to aid healing and reduce scarring, but I remembered that Lavender came with my kit. So I hastily put some in coconut oil to use as a salve instead. It is like a miracle that my skin healed faster than ever in my life, and just four days later you would not know anything had happened. NOT A SINGLE SCAR!

I have started putting it on my neck because I figure it must have amazing powers to help DNA replication to have done that, and wrinkly necks are due to faulty collagen and elastin production.

2.Associated topics: scrapes-/-scratches-/-abrasions,scars — "[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

[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
