A scar is the resulting blemish as the skin repairs itself after a wound from an accident, a disease or surgery. The more intrusive or rough the wound typically the more visible the scar. As a wound heals the area will be red and may thicken at first. With time the visible scarring will diminish. Essential oils will help the body in this natural process of healing and will promote repair of tissue to its original condition.
Remember with any open wound to:
• Make certain the wound is clean and free of any debris or possible infectious material.
• Close the wound as carefully as possible. Butterfly bandage may be required or for serious open wounds professional medical help and stitches of course.
• Use antibacterial oils/ointment periodically to protect the area. Cover with clean bandage if necessary.
• Follow the protocols suggested here to prevent scarring.
