Are your scars bothering you? Want blemish-free skin? You don’t have to buy expensive scar creams or oils, just whip up this quick and easy healing scar oil in your kitchen!
Many of us have scars. Some are stubborn; some go away with time even when you don’t do anything. However, the latter ones are rare and far and few between. Also, if you have acne prone skin, scars are more common and appear frequently. Scars can leave us feeling less than perfect and depending on where, how big or prominent they are, we really want them to go away!
So, can scars really be eliminated?
Not always, but in most cases they can fade away fully or partially, if you use certain healing ingredients. The key is being patient and persistent with your efforts, so the scars begin to fade away into oblivion.
Here’s a DIY Scar Oil recipe you can try for eliminating blemishes and scars. Ready, everyone?
Avocado Oil – 30 Ml
Arnica Flower – 1 Tbsp.
Calendula Flowers – 1 Tbsp.
St. John’s Wort Flowering Tops – 1 Tbsp.
Olive Oil – 30 Ml
Helichrysum Essential Oil – 20 Drops
Geranium Essential Oil – 10 Drops
Lavender Essential Oil – 10 Drops
Frankincense Essential Oil – 10 Drops
In a glass jar, add the flowers along with Olive Oil and Avocado Oil. You can add less or more flowers – basically the oil should cover the flowers thoroughly.
Cover this bottle with cheesecloth and keep it in sun for about two weeks. By evening, remove the bottle from sun and close the lid. Repeat this process – leaving it out during the day, for about 1 – 2 weeks till the oils are infused with the flowers.
Filter the oil through a sieve and gently press down the flowers to get all the oil out.
Transfer this oil to a dark glass bottle and add in the essential oils.
Shake gently to combine and wait for two days, for the oils to combine and blend.
How to Use this Oil?
Apply on affected areas after cleansing your skin, every night. Gently massage for a few seconds till your skin absorbs the oil.
Tips to Tweak the Recipe
You can add a few drops of Vitamin E Oil to this recipe.
If you want faster results, you can add Rosehip Seed Oil to this recipe – at least 10 Ml.
If you have mature skin, Evening Primrose Oil is a good addition to this recipe.
You can skip Olive Oil and substitute with Hazelnut Oil or Argan Oil if you have acne-prone skin.
If you want a lighter recipe, use Argan Oil, Sweet Almond Oil or Hazelnut Oil instead of Olive or Avocado Oils.
Will This Recipe Work for Long-term Scars?
It should work, though we will be adding another recipe for stubborn scars soon.
What Scars Can This Oil be Used For?
Any scars, marks or blemishes including Acne Scars, Skin Pigmentation, Age Spots, Stretch Marks, etc.
