This is an oil rich in Vitamin A, C, B1-2 and E, which has an amazing effect on healing damaged skin. Since acne scars are caused by skin damage, this is a great healer with lots of anti-inflammatory properties.

Tea Tree Oil


Tea tree oil is a very powerful anti-bacterial and anti-fungal oil with a strong smell similar to eucalyptus. Tea tree oil can prevent dark spots from forming before they even happen.

Rosehips Seed Oil


There are lots of Vitamin A and retinoic acid in this oil, which is absolutely brilliant for reducing scar pigmentation and repairing damaged skin.

Olive Oil


Olive oil is amazing and can do wonders for your acne scars by speeding up the healing process so your dark spots fade pretty quickly. You can do that by massaging olive oil into the scarred area.

Jojoba Oil


comes from the plant called Jojoba, native to Mexico and parts of California. This oil can trick your body into thinking that it’s made enough oil, so that you don’t get as oily on your skin. It also treats the redness and prevent scars from forming.

Tamanu Oil


Tamanu oil is a very powerful and healing oil with the ability to repair skin and heal scar tissues, not only on the new tissues but for old ones too. This oil comes from the Tamanu tree and is native to a the South Pacific.

Argan Oil

Argan Oil

Argan Oil comes from the Argania Spinosa tree and has an incredible amount of healing properties on scarring. The linoleic acid can prevent your skin from being clogged, the antioxidants can decrease skin inflammation and oleic acid helps your skin create a healthy amount of sebum, that evil thing which can cause acne.

    Thank you Susanna! Great Article. I used essential oils, after breaking pretty much every bone on my body and to heal/get rid of the keloid scars. I was inspired by the amazing healing, I began making my own blends. Thank you!
