Here is a chemical free, magical recipe to reduce your stretch marks and scars.
DIY SCAR SALVE
6 tbsp. Coconut Oil
4 tbsp. Shea Butter
2 tbsp. Bees Wax
1/2 Tbsp. Vitamin E Oil ( When I purchased my Vitamin E Oil I bought the highest strength at 32,000 IU )
40 Drops Frankincense Essential Oil
20 Drops Helichrysum Essential Oil
20 Drops Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender –Medicinal uses for lavender include cell renewal (especially related to burns) and minimizing scarring.
Frankincense – The king of oils is used to prevent and reduce scarring.
Helichrysum – This wonderful essential oil is indicated for reducing scarring, scar tissue and regenerating tissue.
Melt the coconut oil and shea butter in a saucepan on medium heat. Once they’re melted, stir in the wax until it melts (I sprinkle a layer over the top, stir it in and repeat so it all melts). Once it’s melted and stirred in completely, remove from heat and let cool for 15 minutes.
Stir in the essential oils and Vitamin E oil. Pour into a clean container with a lid, label and store in a cool place (it’ll take a few hours to cool completely).
Rub a small amount onto scars twice a day. I usually just scrape out a small bit with my fingernail – a little goes a long way. The same combo I use on my face for acne.
*( Please note: I only use "Young Living Oils" because I have done extensive reading and reviewing of their quality and purity. So if you use some other essential oil brand for any of my recipes, I cannot vouch for their safety or effectiveness!)
