Healing Scars Naturally: Which Remedies Work Best?

We often receive emails asking for help to get rid of scar tissue, stretch marks, etc. Much of your ability to not show scars depends on genetics, but there are some natural remedies that can visibly improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks over time. These include bentonite clay (topically) and carrot juice (orally).

Aloe Vera Juice

soothes inflamed skin and is a fantastic way to remove scars, boost the immune system, and regenerate damaged tissue. Aloe Vera has acerbic qualities that with regular usage helps prevent acne breakouts or scars and results in softer skin, decreased swelling, and new cell growth reducing acne scars which fade over time.

Studies suggest that commercial aloe preparations are not as effective as fresh aloe leaves in healing scars and wounds. The best option is too keep an aloe plant in your kitchen or backyard and apply a fresh leaf on your scars or stretch marks every day. You can usually use a leaf for 2-3 days.

Bentonite clay

is a unique substance that works as an internal and external cleanser, it’s made of flat crystal flake that carries a strong negative ionic charge called Montmorillonite, which elevates your body’s pH and absorbs some of the hydrogens from your cells enabling them to fill that space with needed oxygen.

Coconut oil’s ability to nourish and heal the skin and its wonderful moisturizing and healing powers have been known for generations. As a saturated fat consisting primarily of medium-chain fatty acids (MCTs), it is not easily oxidized and does not cause harmful free radical damage like polyunsaturated vegetable oils.
