Scrapes, Bruises and other Boo boos

by Penny Keay

Scrapes, bruises and other boo boos even those caused intentionally by surgery - how can you help them to heal more quickly?

Essential oils have great antiseptic, and antibacterial action. Some oils are better than others.

Lavender is a very safe essential oil that can be used on almost every "boo boo".

Lavender can be applied to many scrapes and bruises once the wound has been cleaned properly. All essential oils should be diluted with a carrier oil or lotion before using on the skin.

★ Before using on any scar or deep wound please consult your physician. ★

★ Do not apply essential oils to surgery sites that still have stitches or tape in place. ★

What can you use on scars to help the skin heal quickly?

Helichrysum is a great oil for scar care.

The following recipe will work with new scars and old. Quicker results will be seen with new scars.

For new Scars -

Helichrysum - 15 drops
Rose hip seed oil - 15 ml
Hazelnut oil - 15 ml

Apply this mixture to the wounds two times a day for about 10 to 20 days.

For older Scars -

Helichrysum - 15 drops
Sage oil - 15 drops
Rose hip seed oil - 15 ml
Hazelnut oil - 15 ml

For old unsightly scars you will need to apply this mixture to the wounds two times a day for 3 to 6 months.

These recipes are from "Advanced Aromatherapy - The Science of Essential oil Therapy" by Kurt Schnaubelt, Ph.D.
