Its a known fact that, Lavender Essential Oil has a beneficial effect on wound healing. Here is the study published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine provided scientific evidence that confirms the beneficial effects of Lavender Essential oils on wound healing properties and its mechanisms in an animal model .
The research was conducted by, Morinomiya University of Medical Sciences in Japan which looked at the effect of lavender oil in various stages of wound healing and its molecular mechanism. They created circular and full thickness wounds on rats. The rats were treated with Lavender essential oil or Placebo soluion over the wounds topically for 14 days. Results showed that the topical treatment of lavender oil increased transforming growth factor-beta, which is known to regulate proliferation of fibroblasts, collagen synthesis, and production of wound granulation tissue. This accelerated the wound healing process by promoting increased formation of granulation tissue, tissue remodeling by collagen replacement, and thus benefiting in faster wound shrinking.
