Natural Oils Support Healing Without Side Effects

It is always a tragedy when a child is injured badly enough to cause scarring, and parents and the child can be very distressed by the appearance of scars. The ray of hope in this situation is the fact that a toddler's skin is still growing and developing, and children have incredible powers of healing and regeneration. Of course, when you want to find the best scar cream for toddlers, you should follow your doctor's instructions; however, even after treatment is finished, you may want to continue nourishing the skin and encouraging healing. This is when natural skin nourishing treatments should be explored. There are many natural oils that benefit skin healing and health. Many can be found on your grocer's shelves, and others can be found at specialty shops, such as natural food stores.

Try Extra Virgin Olive Oil

One very fine, nourishing oil for skin that is affordable and easy to come by is extra virgin olive oil (EVOO). This all natural, lightly nutty smelling oil absorbs into the skin readily and possesses many healing properties. If your toddler has been injured and you have finished your course of prescription scar cream treatment, continuing to nourish the skin with EVOO is a good idea, especially if there is still some scarring present. In fact, choosing EVOO in place of baby oil is a smart choice. Baby oil is made of mineral oil, which is a petroleum product. It is not suitable for use on the skin and provides no nourishment for the skin in any circumstance.

EVOO is a good choice in place of many types of moisturizers for young and old alike. It makes an excellent all-over body moisturizer after bath. It can be used as a makeup remover applied lightly to the face and wiped off. It can also be used as a facial moisturizer after bath, shower or shaving.

Coconut Oil Is A Fine Healing Moisturizer

If your toddler is experiencing severe diaper rash, this can actually lead to scarring without proper treatment. Among natural choices, the best scar cream for toddlers with diaper rash may be coconut oil. This all natural, affordable oil can be found on the baking goods aisle at your local grocery store. In addition to having strong healing and nourishing properties, coconut oil is both anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. Many moms who are at their wits' end dealing with their little one's potentially scarring case of severe diaper rash have found success by switching from commercially prepared creams and ointments to coconut oil. Again, the reason for this may be the fact that commercial products are generally petroleum based and therefore unfit for use on the human body. Coconut oil is safe for use on people of all ages to address a wide variety of skin conditions including rashes, stretch marks, scarring and simple, dry, chapped skin.

Argan Oil Also Offers Excellent Scar Treatment Possibilities

Another completely safe and very effective oil that has become wildly popular recently is Argan oil. This rare oil that comes from the Argan tree, which grows only in Morocco is said to be an absolute miracle treatment when it comes to health and beauty care for the skin. Argan oil absorbs quickly and brings a powerful dose of vitamins E and F, along with strong anti-oxidant properties. As a regular skin moisturizer or as a scar treatment for stretch marks, scarring from injury, acne scarring and more, Argan oil has proven effective. It can be used alone or mixed with coconut oil, olive oil or other natural oils for added coverage and benefits.

It is important to realize that there are two types of Argan oil and that these types are processed differently. Argan oil for cosmetic purposes is cold processed by hand. Argan oil for culinary uses is mildly heat processed. It still contains many benefits and great nourishment for the body, but it is not appropriate for cosmetic use. Nonetheless, adding culinary Argan oil to your diet can also benefit your skin from the inside out. It is an excellent addition to the diet for the entire family.

Natural Choices Are Always Best

When seeking the best scar cream for toddlers and safe skin healing and nourishing products for the entire family, remember that natural choices are always preferable. Commercial scar creams and cosmetic creams are filled with petroleum products, dyes and fragrances that will do you no good. Go natural for excellent, affordable results!

    That was the old fashioned way of getting at the seed. The goats would climb the trees and eat the fruit and pass the seed. The oil is found in the seed. Today they simply remove the fruit from the seed and access the oil in the seed.

    I had never heard of argan oil. Thanks for the tip. Just did a little research and there appears to be a goat droppings connection to the oil. Sometimes it's best not to know!

    Thanks for reading and commenting! Argon oil is a really big thing these days, and lots of people are using it for all kinds of things. I too use coconut oil as a body oil after bathing. Thanks for sharing! :)

    I have never heard of argon oil but I have switched to using coconut oil as a moisturizer and it works wonders and is so inexpensive compared to other face creams. We cook with olive oil regularly and have the regular as well as EVOO in our pantry.

    I agree with your bottled water assessment. Happy to share this!

    Thanks! I really want to see people stop being taken in by commercial products and advertising. Personal care products are outrageously overpriced, filled with garbage and mostly unnecessary. Another HUGE waste of money is bottled water, which is the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people. It is pure destruction for the environment, human rights and the people who purchase it from start to finish. There is nothing good about bottled water.

    I do use these oils daily for various purposes. Your advice is sound and all good.

    Thank you! Yes, I use coconut oil and olive oil daily, too. Argan oil has been hailed as a miracle oil, but it's quite expensive so I don't use it all the time. On the upside, it can be used very sparingly or added to a good carrier oil like coconut or olive oil for more thrifty use.

    All three oils are such miracle choices. I use coconut oil and olive daily. The Argan oil sounds a good idea but don't have it. A very interesting and informative hub.
