I coincidently got this in a box right after scraping most of the skin off one of my ankles in a freak accident. As a scar started to form, I put the oil over the scrape every day hoping to see some improvement. The scar did begin to fade but alas I think it's permanent, which is certainly not the oil's fault. It at least helped. Other than for scars, I'm not sure I'd ever use this for other purposes, like as a lotion or in my hair.
