Healing cuts and wounds
Wound healing is somewhat more controversial, so using an essential oil for this is not yet recommended. However, some analysis is being done on wound healing in rats using essential oils.
Use in people for this purpose is not proven, but many use it and report good results. Studies have shown that eucalyptus oil and cinnamon oil (both present in Thieves’ oil) help mice heal their wounds.
It is important to note that the use of any oil on wounds should be done with great caution. Before doing so you should consult a doctor.
