Q: A while ago a friend asked his acupunture lecturer about a treatment for the keloid scar I have on my arm and he gave me a white patch which smells like it has some herbs in it or on it. The patch is white and the underneath is yellowish.

I was wondering if you knew the name of this patch as I need to get some more?


A: Keloid scar tissues is seen as a form of dampness and stagnation from the Chinese medicine perspective, so herbs that break up tissue can be helpful. On a topical level, castor oil with grapefruit essential oil is helpful. You can create your own blend by adding 12 drops of grapefruit essential oil (you can purchase essential oils from Aiki Healing) to 2 oz of castor oil and apply daily to keloid scars.

Grapefruit oil is photosensitive so may cause increased sun burns when exposed to sunlight, so be sure to use heavy sunscreen on any areas that you use citrus blends and try to avoid the direct sunlight.
