Burn Scars treated with Axhilirit© and Rejuvinit© Products
A freak accident in the kitchen left me with third degree burns over 35% of my body. I was in intensive care for weeks, being brought back from “The Other Side” twice. Suddenly I could not do anything for myself. My seven week old baby had to go to a sitter every day. I could not even look after her. We tried all sorts of lotions and potions on my burnt face, hands and legs. After two years I made peace with the scarring.

Note: The following information has been compiled from 20 years of personal experience, feedback from qualified wound care professionals, extreme sport enthusiasts, adventurists and other clients.
Contact a healthcare practitioner immediately if symptoms worsen or persist.
Healing Oil Products may assist in the treatment of blemished skin conditions and due to its natural workings should not be considered a quick fix or a miracle cure.
Healing Oil Products contain traces of Nuts.
NOT SUITABLE for people with hyper-sensitive skin or sensitivity to any of the ingredients, including pine derivatives, Tea Tree Oil, Essential Oils and NUT containing products.
Do not use any REJUVINIT© containing products during Pregnancy.
Read the information on the products with care. If in doubt, contact your healthcare practitioner.
Although the ingredients have been traditionally used for thousands of years and had been researched over many years by ourselves, results vary amongst users. If a sensitivity response is experienced or if no improvement is seen within 7 days, discontinue use of the products and consult with a healthcare practitioner.
Aromatherapy Oils are absorbed through the skin and do not interfere with the working of alternative therapies, including homeopathic or other natural remedies.
Healing Oil Products are suitable for infants and children as long as they are not sensitive to any of the ingredients (pine derivatives, essential oils, tea tree oil) or allergic to NUTS. Keep out of reach of children.
Interaction with pharmaceutical chemicals has not been established. Please consult with a Healthcare Practitioner if in doubt, or when using chronic medication.
Organ Transplant Patients should not use Healing Oil Products as the oils may boost the immunity and thus negate the efficacy of immuno-suppressive drugs.
Alternative therapies usually have a detoxification effect on the body. This means that any area that has had recent treatment with Cortisone or Steroid containing products may first be detoxified before the natural properties in alternative therapies start working on the actual damage of the skin. Allow at least 7-10 days between the last treatment of cortisone/steroid products before starting natural therapies or using natural products.
Results vary amongst users, depending on severity of the skin blemish. In general, drastic results are evident within the first four days. Thereafter, usually between one and three months for enhancement.
A very small percentage (approximately 2%) of clients does not respond to Healing Oil Products.
The use of essential oils during pregnancy is not advisable.
Axhilirit© may cause a burning sensation on open wounds. This is the body’s confirmation that there is infection present in the wound, and Axhilirit© is doing its function of disinfecting and cleaning the wound. A single application is usually sufficient in scrapes and smaller wounds, whereas larger wounds may need repeated applications.
Wound Care – EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT IF NO OTHER HELP IS ON HAND:
Items to keep in an emergency kit:n Cleaning agent: Saline Solution (1/2 teaspoon of salt to a litre of cooled, boiled water) n Tape or Plasters: Medical plasters or Masking tape (the paper kind doubles to hold bandages or gauze in place) n Gauze and Bandages n Axhilirit© Healing Oil n Axhilirit© Healing Ointment n Topical Antibiotic Powder (or cream)
Minor wounds and insect bites:Apply Axhilirit© Healing Oil or Ointment 2-3 times a day to help accelerate the healing process.
Major wounds:Clean the wound with the saline solution. Open the wounds and drip Axhilirit© Healing Oil into the opening so it covers as much of the inside of the wound as possible. If the wound is ragged, bring the edges together as far as possible before applying more Axhilirit© Healing Oil. Spread a thin layer of Axhilirit© Healing Ointment onto the gauze before applying to the wound. This will prevent the gauze from sticking. Tape or bandage the wound, while trying to keep the edges of skin together. This will minimize scarring. Try and keep the wound closed for at least 12 to 24 hours after the first treatment. If there is no infection evident by the second treatment, the wound may be left closed for another 24 hours after treatment. This will assist in the undisturbed forming of new cells. Repeat the process (soaking the wound with the saline if the gauze is stuck) until the wound is closed and can be left open. With deep wounds you aim to heal the flesh from the cellular level to the top to prevent scarring, so allow the oil to penetrate the wound as deeply as possible. Watch out for infection (red, swollen, warm flesh/skin) in which case Antibiotic Powder can be sprinkled onto the wounds before application of the Axhilirit© Healing Oil. Keep the wound covered with a bandage or plaster until the infection is under control. Keep on with the treatments until the wound is completely closed. If scarring should result, treat as for ‘scars’.
Burn wounds: For serious burns, the above procedure can be followed, with Axhilirit© Oil initially applied 2-3 times per day. Sterilized bandages can be placed over the treated areas. The Axhilirit© Healing Oil leaves a protective layer that helps to keep infection and foreign bodies from entering, simulating a ‘second’ skin. Deeper (third degree) burn areas may become weepy, keep on treating them with Axhilirit© Healing Oil until the burns are dried out.
The Axhilirit© Healing Ointment can be applied over the Axhilirit© Healing Oil as a soothing and healing ointment. With burns, the body secretes plasma (yellow watery fluid) which assists the body to heal. This should not be seen as infection unless there is a foul smell that accompanies the fluid. If infection is suspected, dust Antibiotic powder over burns before applying the Axhilirit© Healing Oil. Continue with treatments as normal. Shedding of burnt / damaged/dead cells will be evident with most dressing changes and although distressing and painful, is the natural way the body heals after deep burns. Keep the burn survivor hydrated, as a lot of fluid is lost through the open skin.
Bed Sores, Skin Ulcers, Slow Healing Wounds, Diabetic Sores: Axhilirit© has been found to heal previously problematic wounds in many clients. Some clients had skin ulcers for up to 25 years, or wounds that simply refused to close up and heal. Any open area larger than 4cm in diameter is considered large and might need a temporary bandage or plaster for comfort. Ulcers should be cleaned with a saline solution to protect new skin growth. Gently pat the area dry after rinsing and apply Axhilirit© Healing Oil 2-3 times a day until the ulcer has closed and new skin has formed. As Axhilirit© encourages blood flow and simulates a temporary skin, there should be minimum formation of granulation of flesh (keloids). The body might secrete plasma (yellow watery fluid) to assist in the healing process. This is a natural healing process and should not be seen as infection unless there is a foul smell that accompanies the fluid. If infection is suspected, dust Antibiotic powder over the wound before applying the Axhilirit© Healing Oil. Consult with a healthcare practitioner as anti-biotics might be needed. Continue with treatments as normal until wound is completely closed.
Abrasions, small nicks and cuts: Apply Axhilirit© Healing Oil or Ointment to the abrasion/cut. If you have no method of cleaning the abrasion, apply the Axhilirit© directly. Apply Axhilirit© 2-3 times per day until healed.Always keep a handy supply in the kitchen, the bathroom, the car, handbag, pocket, etc. The Axhilirit© blend of oils has been found to tolerate higher temperatures well although the ideal is to keep it at room temperature.
Animal scratches and bites: Always be extremely careful for infection with scratches (especially from cats). Be on the lookout for any sign of a fever that might indicate a problem and immediately consult a healthcare practitioner. With surface scratches, or if help cannot be had immediately with deeper wounds, use Axhilirit© to disinfect the wounds on site. With bite-wounds and deep scratches, consult a healthcare practitioner as soon as possible. Adhere to the advice of the healthcare practitioner. Apply Axhilirit© 2-3 times per day to encourage the wounds to heal faster.
Deep Cuts and Knife-wounds: Consult your nearest emergency facility as soon as possible. Axhilirit© Healing Oil may be applied 2-3 times per day to assist in healing the wound after your return from the hospital/emergency facility.
Rusted wire (barb-wire) scratches: Apply Axhilirit© Healing Oil as soon as possible. One or two applications are usually sufficient to help heal the scratch without a problem. If the skin leaves a scar, treat as for scars. For deeper scratches Apply Axhilirit© Healing Oil 2-3 times per day until healed.
Post Operative Care:Axhilirit© may be used to help accelerate the healing and reduce swelling after an invasive operation. The Oil should be applied on the area surrounding the wound and not directly onto the stitches as it may assist the skin to close faster than usual and adhere to the stitches. Apply Axhilirit© Healing Oil or Ointment directly to wound area after the removal of stitches to reduce scarring. If scarring results, treat as for scars.
Kitchen/Bathroom scalds and small burns (no bigger than a R5-00 coin):Cool burnt area with cold water. Apply a drop of Axhilirit© Healing Oil directly to the area. The burning sensation may persist for a while longer. Repeat treatment if necessary. If no water is on hand, immediately treat burnt area with Axhilirit© Healing Oil or Ointment.
Sunburn: If only burnt red and no blistering is evident, apply Axhilirit© Healing Oil or Ointment directly to burnt areas. The damaged skin may still going to be shed by the body. Consult a doctor if blistering is evident. This may indicate second degree damage.
Bigger and Serious Burns: All burns on infants, any burn deeper than sunburn, all burns larger than a R5-00 coin, and any burns in the face, on the hands and feet and in the private part area, is a serious burn. Contact your nearest emergency facility immediately! Apply Axhilirit© Healing Oil and Ointmentto assist in recuperation after returning from the emergency facility. Refer to WOUND CARE -EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT - burn section, for treatment guide.
How to manage a burn emergency: Remove the injured person from the source of the injury, e.g. remove smouldering clothing. In the case of an electric burn, switch off the main electricity first. Immerse the burn in cold water. Irrigate chemical burns with plenty of water. In the case of an electrical burn, check the injured person’s circulation and respiration. Apply a dry dressing. NEVER use honey, butter or cotton wool. Contact your nearest emergency facility.
Burn Chart:First Degree or Superficial: Red skin with no blisters (e.g. sunburn). Second Degree or Partial thickness: The skin is red or mottled, with blisters. Third Degree or Full thickness: The skin is white or charred, leathery to the touch, and mostly painless. Inhalation Burns: Flame inhalation injures the upper airways. Toxic gases (e.g. burning plastic) damage the lungs lower down and the alveoli. Signs of inhalation burns: person was trapped in a burning enclosure, fire burns of the face or mouth, breathing difficulties, black particles in the spit.

Refer to WOUND CARE -EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT – Major Wound section, for treatment guide.
Blisters (Hiking):Do not drain the blisters. Apply Axhilirit© Healing Oil to blisters 2-4 times a day until the blister dries out by itself. New skin regenerates under the blister and the blistered skin will shed when ready. Usual time for an Axhilirit© treated blister to be healed is 24-48 hours.
