So today I wanted to talk about something a bit different from the usual beauty and fashion posts and that is a new oil that I am obsessed with! As you can probably guess from the title, yes I am talking about Lavender Essential Oil! HAHAHAHHA
So i’ve had these 2 massive scars on my collarbones since I got my micro-dermals removed. After a few weeks, I realised that the skin around it was getting kind of irritated and it was making the scars bigger (they had turned into long ugly lumps on my skin) and they were not healing at all so I went into PANIC MODE. After doing some googling, I found that apparently lavender oil really helps with scarring so I went to the shops ASAP and purchased myself a bottle of lavender essential oil. The one I use is the In Essence ‘Lavender Pure Essential Oil’.
So, the benefits of lavender oil:
- It can actually be used for pain relief such as muscle and joint pain.
- Helps scar tissues so aids in the process of healing wounds, cuts and burns. Apparently also treats acne, eczema and psoriasis!
- Improves blood circulation
- Helps kill lice and nits.
- Improves digestion and helps relieve respiratory problems such as colds, coughs and flu.
- Helps with insomnia
- Relieves stress
- Insect repellant
After I bought mine, I actually massaged some onto the back of my ankles as well as I have massive scars from some regrettable shoe choices and I would have to say, it really does work! Those scars have almost completely cleared up! While the scars on my collar bones are still quite visible, I would have to say from the next morning when I woke up after my first application, they have gotten noticeably smaller. Obviously, it would take months of massaging oil into my skin for them to completely disappear but right now, I am quite satisfied with the progress! I would also like to add that I found that after applying it on at night, I’ve been sleeping like a baby. There’s something about the smell that makes you want to sleep and I found that it’s actually been making me sleep really well!
I hope this post helped and please share with us any of your scar remedies by commenting!
