More about the wonders of Lavender oil:
When a cut or wound is fresh, clean the area with 2 cups of warm water and add 5 drops of Lavender and 2-3 drops of Tea Tree. This will help to clean and disinfect the area. Put another 2 - 3 drops of lavender onto a plaster and apply to the wound. Change this a couple times a day. After the third day, you should be able to leave it uncovered. If not continue for a couple more days.
If you have old scars don't forget it may take between 3 - 6months before you see results.
