Re: essential oil for hyperpigmented scars
Ananda carries a wonderful blend for scar healing and reduction which I have been using for an old scar and my son used for a new scar (from a bad burn). My son's scar healed magnificently and my old scar is improving nicely. The color of the scar itself has lightened over the past couple of months. I don't always remember to apply the "scar treatment" as often as I should, but I am very pleased with the progress so far.
Below is the information from Ananda regarding their blend. I underlined the ingredients below, which you could use to create your own blend, but I do not know what proportions you should use. I included the link below as well.
Smooth Skin Scar Treatment™
Described in the medical aromatherapy literature for reducing or eliminating appearance of old scars, including keloid scarring from wounds or surgery.
Used regularly, this blend of Helichrysum
, Sea Buckthorn
, Rosemary Verbenone
, and essential oils based in organic Rosehip Seed (studied for it's skin smoothing effects) Tamanu (Callophyllum, a very healing oil for the skin)
and Hazelnut oils can reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks
. Works equally well on the face and other parts of the body. Use continually for 3-6 months for reducing appearance of 'old' marks. Apply to 'new' wounds regularly to prevent scar formation.
