Lubera stops plant deliveries to the UK

Sweet violet cream for scars

720x72-fur-BlogUK

 With a biker and craftsman in the family, a scar treatment cream is a MUST. The guy permanently comes home with injuries. Looking for a good ointment, I came across this recipe.

The instructions are meant to go back to Hildegard von Bingen; however we can no longer ask her whether she had prepared this cream just as it states. What is certain is that sweet violets (Viola odorata) are known for being regularly used for skin inflammation. And we can say that they are certainly good for the skin. With the plant’s medically effective ingredients such as saponins, glycosides and minerals, it is a versatile flower, which additionally also spoils us with its fragrance.

Hildegard von Bingen describes the sweet violet as being a hot tip for caring for scars. To make the cream yourself you will need the following:

20 g fresh flowering sweet violets
10 ml olive oil
20 g wool grease or shea butter for a vegan variant
2-4 drops of genuine essential rose oil

Heat the very finely cut up sweet violet flowers along with the oil and grease in a water bath. Strain the mixture (it works best with an old, clean pair of tights). If the mixture is pressed out properly, then it will even have a slightly purple colour. When the cream is still warm, add the rose oil and then fill the cream into a clean jar.

The cream can be applied to fresh or old scars. According to the description of this recipe, you should thoroughly massage the cream into the scar. We have used this cream in the scar of an incised wound and are baffled by its result. The smell was not really thrilling for my affected son, but he still followed through with the scar care. He also continued to regularly massage his old scar on his elbow and yes, the scar is slowly getting better.
