One of my favorite college experiences was studying abroad in New Zealand. To mark my very formative trip I was seriously considering getting a tattoo. While doing a handstand on some rocks #photo-op I fell and got a deep gash on my arm. This left a pretty cool looking scar which I decided would take the place of the tattoo I was planning to get.
Of course, not all scars mark an amazing adventure. Most serve reminders of silly mistakes or “what, how did that leave a scar?” Thankfully there are a few essential oils that help naturally reduce the appearance of scars. Here’s our list of natural and affordable alternatives to scar reduction.
