217 – Scar Tissue Protocol

I saved all these posts on scar tissue. In addition to the Scar-Be-Gone
recipe there are other choices to consider as well. I hope the information,
recommendations, application suggestions, and testimonies will both help and

Hi Oilers, Here is a question from a friend. I found lots of information
about scars on skin but nothing on internal scarring. Hope someone has some
suggestions for her. Thanks, Amanda S
Hi, A friend’s mother had surgery for cancer two years ago and the scar
tissue has taken over inside of her. She has been hospitalized three times
on the verge of more surgery. Apparently the scar tissue has sent out
lesions which are attaching to everything. I thought there might be
something that would help. Thank you for any help. Tammy T
Today, I’d probably use Frankincense and Helichrysum – layered over the
abdomen as close to the site as I could get topically. And I may even take 5
drops of Frankincense and 5 drops of Helichrysum together in a capsule
several times a day. Both of these oils are fairly expensive and in the
French Medical Text, they also mention Lavender as being able to prevent
scar tissue so I might use that if I didn’t have Frankincense or
Helichrysum – topically and internally. So here’s what I wrote about my

In early 1992, over a year before I learned about Young Living, I was having
female problems – heavy bleeding during my menstrual cycle and a lot of pain
in the abdomen. The gynecologist told me I had one of the most severe cases
of scar tissue that she had seen and recommended an immediate hysterectomy
and the surgery to remove the webs of scar tissue that were apparently all
over my inner abdomen. I went home and crawled into bed, unable to do much

I called my herbal teacher, Hanna Kroeger, and she reminded me of a recipe
that enables the body to get rid of excess scar tissue and told me to go on
it right away. Luckily, I had the ingredients at home, because I was in too
much pain to go to the store. I followed her instructions and within 24
hours the pain was gone. After completing the 10 day regimen, the pain
never did return and I never had any surgery. I have shared this recipe
with many, many people in the hopes that those who need it will hear about
it. I occasionally get a note from someone who has needed surgery, followed
the regimen and then didn’t need surgery, just like me.

This is the recipe I followed, which according to European tradition, is
used to encourage the production of interferon in the body and alleviate
excess scar tissue. 1 pint cottage cheese (regular or low fat OK, fat free
not OK) and ? cup of good quality cold pressed oil such as almond or apricot
kernel (Hain makes good oils). Blend together. If it is too thick and
doesn’t blend easily, add a little water or milk.

This is the “Foundation Recipe” which is tasteless and bland and which must
be eaten every day for 10 days, along with a normal diet. To make it
palatable separate into two parts. To the first part, create a sweet flavor
by adding real maple syrup, vanilla and Cinnamon. This is tasty when
dripped over fruit. To the other part, add seasonings that create a Ranch
like flavor – such as garlic, onion, herbs, etc. I have even added natural
Ranch type dressing mix to this when I’m in a hurry.

This is really good as a salad dressing, or dripped over a baked potato or
over steamed veggies. Again, you want to eat the whole pint sometime during
the day for 10 days, along with what you would normally eat.

Additionally, go to the health food store and purchase a good quality biotin
supplement and an inositol supplement. These are two B Vitamins. Read the
labels to see how many they suggest you take – the producer knows their
product. It’s just important to be getting extra inositol and biotin
during these 10 days.

I realize this sounds too simple, but it is worthy of anyone’s trying it
before going to surgery. Please be aware that after following this regimen,
a person may not require surgery and that the doctors involved may not
believe it or understand how it could be possible. The woman with scar
tissue will have to make her own decision about it, as I did. My doctor
called my home several times and was quite upset with me for not getting the
surgery. I know she felt that she knew what was best for me, but I made the
final decision not to have the surgery and as I mentioned previously,
I have not had any recurrence of the symptoms in over 8 years.

If this happened to me now, of course, I would also use the wonderful Young
Living female products – Prenolone, ProMist, FemiGen, Femalin and Estro
which were designed to support and balance the female system. The Cleansing
Trio plus JuvaTone and JuvaFlex may also be a consideration.

Years ago, I read a quote from an AMA medical journal which stated that at
that time, the number of people who died as a result of hospital caused
mistakes was equivalent to three jumbo jets crashing every two days. So
even when surgery appears to be simple, I take it seriously. If through
sharing with others we can keep a few folks off of these jets, we’ve done
our job.

The most magnificent attribute of natural healing is that through our own
investigation and study, we can regain control of our health and wellness
and become the powerful people God intended for us to be. Vicki Opfer
Hi, In reply to the person who asked about scar tissue, I recently went to
an essential oil talk by Marcella Vonn Harting, who said that the Blue
Cypress in Australian Blue has been found to virtually melt scar tissue,
that no matter how old the scar is, the tissue just breaks down and falls

About a month ago, I had ordered some Blue Cypress from Creer Labs, so I’m
going to try it on 6-month old scar. If it works, I’ll let you know. Susan

Scar-B-Gone Recipe – 10 drops Helichrysum, 6 drops Lavender, 8 drops
Lemongrass, 4 drops Patchouli and 5 drops Myrrh mixed with 1 ounce V-6.

Put the oils in your bottle as they are listed, starting with Helichrysum
first. Mix them together well then add V-6 mix again. Now you are ready to
use your blend. Don’t try to change the order of oils as it will change
what it is made for.

I made this blend for a little 3 year old girl who had fallen out of bed and
scraped her forearm just below the elbow. The scrape enlarged until her
parents had to take her to a doctor. They found out that it was Staph
infection she had gotten at the time of birth. Antibiotics didn’t help so
they had to go in and scrape the bone before it would heal. Doing that
caused a lot of scar tissue and she could not bend her arm without crying
out in pain. Her dad asked me what could help her and I told him I would do
some research and see if I could come up with something. I went home and
studied my books and notes from Gary’s classes and came up with this blend.

After a week of using this blend I asked him how she was doing and he
started to cry. Thank you, Thank you, she can run and play without hurting
her arm now. Nancy Sanderson
Four years ago I was doing a winter fair and some teenage girls stopped by
my booth. This one lady had horrible scar tissue on her neck, chest and on
her forehead. She had surgery and the scars grew. I told her about this
blend, made it up and gave it to her asking her to let me know if it
worked. I never did hear from her until the spring 2005 winter fair. These
two girls stopped by the booth and one said these are the oils I was telling
you about. I asked her what she knew about Young Living and she asked do
you remember giving my friend some oil for her scars? I perked right up and
said yes, how is she doing? Great, she used the oil blend you gave and all
her scars are gone. It’s like she never had them. WOW!
5/07 Donna, If this were me, I’d use Raindrop oils with the addition of
either or both the NeuroGen or Regenolone Creams. If you’re able, you could
add a little Rose Oil to the protocol.

For the pain, you might try a capsule with 1/2 vetiver and 1/2 valerian
orally or one of the other pain formulas from the archives. PanAway and
AromaSiez may help him too. Hope this helps ! Kathie
Hi, Because of my life style running for the last month, I have gained a
little weight (as always). This has caused my scar tissue on the lower
stomach to thicken and become sore. I do have a spot on the lower left that
is sore most of the time but it is in a location where a drainage tube was
installed during surgery and pulled out roughly. I am using NeuroGen cream
on the area. Is there something else you have used to help your self?
Thanks in advance. Rose
Rose – for the soreness I’m thinking Animals Scents Ointment or Rose
Ointment – for the scar tissue – try Aroma life or Sandalwood. I recently
had a fabulous experience with Sandalwood absolutely healing 100% a scar on
my face – and it only took a tiny amount. Kathie
3/10 Hi friends, A member in my down line had been planning to have surgery
on what she had been told and believed was a hernia. On a trip to the Mayo
Clinic she was told good and bad news. No it was not a hernia. Instead,
the large mass on her side was nerve scar tissue as a result of numerous
surgeries in the past, including gall bladder surgery 30 years ago. She was
told nothing could be done for it and sent home without relief from her
discomfort. When she told me her story, I got to thinking there has to be a
way to help shrink this mass and restore those nerves, or at least help her
feel better.

Yes, I came up with yet another spray idea and my friend started using it
right away over the mass on her side. Here is what she wrote to me after
two weeks:

I am excited to tell you that the blend seems to be working. I have had 5
surgeries and radiation over a large area of my stomach. I have been
generous with the oil, using almost half a bottle during the 14 days. I now
can wear slacks for half a day or even more without a problem. Whoopee!
Peace, joy and a splash of silly, Phyl

The recipe for this Nerve Scar Tissue Blend is:
20 drops Helichrysum
10 drops Myrrh
5 drops Copaiba
5 drops Sandalwood
1 drop Rose
V-6 to fill 1 ounce spray bottle

Yet another example of applying the wealth of knowledge available to us!

Hello Amy, Here is my own story with scarring. Several years back I had
emergency gall bladder operation. During the operation they realized my
gallbladder was too swollen to use the smaller laprascope and the larger
version was broken. My doctor was from the old school and chose to make a
large incision through the muscle wall down the center of my abdomen. It is
now much more common to use a small two-inch incision directly over the area
the gall bladder will be removed from. Needless to say I was a bit
distressed when I woke up. During the next two weeks I was told by numerous
people to use Vitamin E. My own intuition, as well as various articles I
had read in the past suggested Castor oil. I decided to try the vitamin E
as an experiment. For two weeks I applied it faithfully morning and night.
Nothing. The scar tissue remained hard and unyielding. I finally got my
castor oil out and was led to add enough Lavender to it to cut its sticky
consistency. Place it in a second much smaller bottle as it takes a lot of
Lavender to do this. Anyway within two DAYS I saw a marked difference. The
scar is still present, but it has never hardened back to its original state.
It is very soft to the touch, very pliable and is a light pink color. If I
had Young Living then I would also have added Frankincense as well as some
of the other oils mentioned by others on this subject. I might also think
of using Purification or another antibacterial oil on my wound site as well
as the anti-cicatrix oils. Blessings, Heidi
Hello oilers, Just wanted to add a bit re: internal scarring. As a
therapist I see scars all the time. Our skin takes up to a year to re-model
after surgery/injury. Scar massage and what ever oils is going to be
important. As for the massage–

*One can start about 3 weeks after surgery when one is completely healed (no
scabs) Start rubbing scar gently clock and counter clockwise. If not
tolerated rub around the scar area. If still too sensitive bush lightly w/ a
wash cloth until you can stand to be touched. Rub for 5-10 minutes 2 times
a day. Increase massage as healing progresses-rub in all directions,
increase pressure of massage, even pinch and lift skin up. Good Luck Linda
Australian Blue is excellent for scar tissue. After back surgery, a year
ago, I found out from my Dr I had some scar tissue in there at my incision
and he told me “scar tissue” can be painful. I read in the EODR about
Australian Blue, bought a bottle, and it really does help. I read it will
dissolve by using this oil persistently…..I love this oil. Sincerely,
Brenda Bromley#815088
Speaking as a massage therapist, friction works very well on transforming
scar tissue. I would use Ortho Sport and do some friction on the hip
joints, which is massaging across the fibers (like pinging a rubber band)
using pressure that is tolerable to her. The oils in Ortho Sport are very
good at penetrating deep where you can’t reach. Friction is great for all
joints since that is where the muscles’ originate; it will also bring blood
to the area to nourish the tissues, and the oils will disperse themselves
throughout the body as needed. PanAway would also be helpful but don’t mix
the two. I would also suggest that the massage be done twice a day; she
will love you for it! Change your energy, change your life! Diana Ewald
Good ol’ Lavender is a great oil to inhibit and reverse scars, I’ve heard. *
I had a burn and liberally slathered lavender… no scar. * I had a
laceration on the top of the head and liberally applied Lavender and PanAway
daily. I haven’t noticed a scar, but I haven’t noticed not having one
either. Basically I just forgot about it altogether, and it was a nasty
bump! d
Hi Sharon, Yes, I highly recommend Lavender oil as well as LavaDerm! Check
into your little booklet “An Introduction to Young Living Essential Oils”
(about $2.00) in the 11th Edition, on pg. 16 under Modern Rediscoveries read
about Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, Ph.D., a French cosmetic chemist and his
severe burns!! It sounds like they were worse than 3rd degree even!! Any
way the healing started right away the next day. If you have the new green
EODR. (“Essential Oils Desk Reference”) it is on page 6.

At convention D. Gary Young took a very hot curling iron and laid it on his
forearm and let it burn him right down to the meat in his arm. (Have you
ever smelled burned hair or flesh? You don’t forget it!!) There was a
visible indentation in his arm. He did this just to introduce his LavaDerm
spray. Mary was at the ready and sprayed his arm with it, and he could slap
it and not have it hurt. Now this is going to the extreme, but it healed
with so scar and the tissue filled in and you can’t tell where it was today.
He knew it wouldn’t work to ask for any volunteers to do this, and it is not
suggested to do this at home.

When the skin is healing, it needs moisture as well as something to keep
away infection. They both work!! Even if you only put the Lavender in a
close proximity to the incision, it will soak in and help.

“Any time you apply essential oils to the skin, they will travel to every
cell in the body within 20 minutes!” That is pretty amazing, but
Helichrysum did that for me. (from my ear to my hips within 10 minutes! (I
had an Auricular Therapy Treatment, and my hip stopped hurting! Funny, but
pretty neat!!!) That is one thing that convinced me, these really do work!!
Have a great day, Jackie Berggren #405072
