Best Essential Oils to Prevent Scars

by Gigilite
(Charleston, SC, USA)


I was walking down the sidewalk and fell on a rising part of the sidewialk caused by an underground tree root. Both of my knees were badly bruised. Is it possible to prevent long term scarring?


There's a few essential oils that can help prevent scarring by promoting healthy new cell growth, along with some good carrier oils for scars. Here's a recipe you might try for your knees (or other parts for other folks)

5 drops rose essential oil
5 drops frankincense essential oil
5 drops helichrysum essential oil
1 tablespoon rosehip carrier oil

Combine all the ingredients in a dark glass bottle and massage into your knees 2 or 3 times a day.

Quality is critical when you're looking for healing effects - cheap oils are often diluted by manufacturers to reduce costs, which weakens their therapeutic properties. I use doTerra essential oils where possible, and Moutain Rose for anything they don't stock, such as the rosehip oil.

I hope that helps. Good luck!
