This recipe is perfect for any kind of scarring, from acne scars to stretch marks, burns and surgical scars. It includes two variations, one with helichrysum and one without.
|4 drops Helichrysum|
|3 drops Frankincense|
|3 drops Lavender|
|9.5 ml Rosehip oil|
Add the essential oils to a 10 ml roller bottle.
Fill the rest of the bottle with rosehip oil.
Replace the roller ball and lid and shake the bottle to blend the oils.
Helichrysum is, in my opinion, the best essential oils for healing scars. I know a lot of people who've had great results with it. It is a bit more expensive than some of the other oils but the results are good enough that it's worth it. And if you only use it in your scar blend and for other skin care recipes, a 5 ml bottle should last you a very long time.
The key to healing scars is persistence - it won't happen overnight. Keep applying the blend to your scars twice a day and they will gradually fade over time. How long it takes depends on the depth of the scar, the type of the scar and how old it is. Older and deeper scars can take a lot longer to fade than newer, more shallow scars.
You can also use this blend around the edges of fresh wounds that are still healing to help prevent the formation of scar tissue.
If you don't have or can't get helichrysum, you can make a blend with 5 drops frankincense, 5 drops lavender and 9.5 ml rosehip oil instead. I started out with that recipe and used it for quite a while before I bit the bullet and got the helichrysum. It helped a lot but the healing definitely sped up when I added in the helichrysum.

I've been using this for about 2 months for old stretch marks that I've had since I was a teenager and I LOVE it. Some of the small stretch marks have become almost invisible and the bigger ones are flatter and have started to fade. I also used it for a mark on my face from a pimple and it really sped up the healing. I don't get pimples often but when I do, they turn into nasty big red lumps and it usually takes a few months for the red mark to fade completely. With this blend, it only took a few weeks. I'm also using it on a small scar from an operation and that's fading too.
