How to erase scars with essential oils?

Scars form following a lesion of the dermis: the damaged cells then send a signal to provoke the multiplication and migration of basal cells of the skin. These cells will fill in the lesion but will never fully recover all the functions of the original cells: this explains the absence of hair and the white appearance of the damaged areas. All this process takes place well protected by a blood clot (a scab) that falls off once everything is repaired. Essential oils can be of great help to promote the healing process and reduce the traces: for this, we will favor essential oils that heal, regenerate skin, desclerose, anti-infectious and anti-inflammatory.

Why these essential oils?

Italian Helichrysum for a beautiful scar

The Italian Helichrysum essential oil is composed of numerous healing molecules: alpha pinene: ≤20% neryl acetate: 3 to 42% gamma curcumene: 4 to 20% italidiones: 1 to 15%.

These molecules promote the healing process in several ways: they maintain a germ-free environment, limit inflammatory reactions and promote the healing process by stimulating the synthesis of keratinocytes. Italidiones have a desclerosing action: they limit the abnormal proliferation of tissues and allow to avoid the appearance of hypertrophic or keloid scars and to treat such scars.

The essential oil of Italian Helichrysum is also widely used for its anti-inflammatory properties thanks to its composition rich in neryl acetate.

Fine Lavender fights germs

The Fine Lavender essential oil also has molecules with healing action but different from the other essential oils in this synergy. The linalool, linalyl acetate and beta caryophyllene present in this essential oil therefore reinforce the healing action of the blend.

These properties are enhanced by the presence of anti-inflammatory components, such as linalyl acetate, and bactericides, such as linalool. Thus, one can maintain a germ-free environment and avoid the spread of inflammation. These components are very versatile since they are also local anesthetic molecules that help to calm the minor itching that often accompanies scars.

The anti-inflammatory action of Patchouli

The essential oil of Patchouli is composed mainly of molecules from the sesquiterpene family: sesquiterpene carbides and alcohols. These molecules are known for their anti-inflammatory action. Carbides such as alpha guaiene and alpha bulnesene inhibit PAF (platelet aggregation factor), a molecule involved in triggering inflammatory processes. Inhibiting this factor limits the passage of the various messengers responsible for pain, redness, etc., in other words, limits inflammation and the pain that results from it.

By limiting the inflammation of skin tissue, the healing process is promoted. Healing molecules, such as patchoulol, can stimulate the regeneration of skin cells: keratinocytes. These cells are involved in the production of keratin, a fibrous protein responsible for the skin's impermeability. Patchoulol is only present in Patchouli essential oil, which makes this essential oil essential to this synergy.

Rosemary Camphor for its antiseptic power

The Remary Camphor essential oil contains camphor (of course!), this molecule belongs to the ketone family and reinforces the healing and skin regenerating action of Italian Helichrysum italidione, as well as its desclerosing action. This is not all, since it also contains alpha pinene in greater quantities than the essential oil of Italian Helichrysum. This completes and strengthens the pool of healing molecules involved in this synergy. The alpha pinene is also an effective anti-infectious, allowing to maintain an environment free of germs which supports the good functioning of the process of cicatrization. Its antiseptic action is reinforced by the presence of camphene, another monoterpene present in the essential oil of Rosemary Camphor. The diversity of components that this essential oil brings to the synergy allows to put all the chances on its side to fade its scars.
