Not much time to blog these days, or rather, not much time to think of good blog topics! My brain doesn’t have much time to wander…
However, yesterday I noticed something interesting. A few months ago there was a thread on the forum about scars and someone had mentioned rosa mosqueta (aka rose hip oil) for scars. I have quite a nasty, raised scar on my elbow from falling off my bike when I was 10 that I only really noticed a few years ago! It’s hard to see your own elbow… So, I bought some rose hip oil and massaged it into the scar most nights for a couple of weeks. I didn’t notice much difference in the scar and then school started and I got busy, then it got cold, so I stopped seeing my elbow, etc. Yesterday I saw the elbow by chance in the mirror and noticed that the scar has changed significantly!
I’ve had this scar for over 15 years and it used to be a big pink/red and lumpy “U” on my elbow. Now it is only slightly darker than my other elbow skin, less lumpy, and I can’t really distinguish a shape anymore. I am now a believer in rose hip oil.
