...olive oil - properly prepared (hence pure olive oil should always be used) - is one of the most effective agents for stimulating muscular activity, or mucus-membrane activity, that may be applied to a body. Olive Oil, then, combined with the Tincture of Myrrh will be very effective; for the Tincture of Myrrh acts with the pores of the skin in such a manner as to strike in, causing the circulation to be carried to affected parts where tissue has been in the nature of folds - or scar tissue, produced from superficial activity from the active forces in the body itself, in making for coagulation in any portion of the system, whether external or internal. And, as indicated in the specific conditions referred to in relation to this body, will be MOST effectual. The Camphorated Oil is merely the same basic force [as Olive Oil?] to which has been added properties of Camphor in more or less its raw or original state, than the spirits of same. Such activity in the epidermis is not only to produce soothing to affected areas but to stimulate the circulation in such effectual ways and manners as to combine with the other properties in bringing what will be determined, in the course of two to two and a half years, a new skin!

...let the scars be removed from the mental and spiritual self. To undertake such through those activities of anyone altering these, we will have worse scars. Let the scars be removed from the own mental, the OWN MENTAL AND SPIRITUAL SELF. Turn to those things of making application of the fruits of the spirit of truth; love, patience, gentleness, kindness, longsuffering, brotherly love, putting away those little tendencies for being "catty" at times or being selfish or expressing jealousy and such.

Let that mind be in thee as was in Him, who is the way and the truth and the light, and we will make the light of love so shine through thy countenance that few, if any, will ever see the scars made by self-indulgence in other experiences.

As indicated by that as has been given, the INFLAMMATION as produced in system that caused irritation to the general PLASM of the blood supply tends to make the scar tissue become adhesive in its nature...

These will KEEP the conditions so that the adhesion will be broken entirely by the absorption that is created in the active forces of the blood supply circulation; circulation here meaning not JUST the blood supply but the lymph and emunctory circulation, and nerve circulation as well.

...first an unbalancing of the chemical system, until little reaction or assimilation of values of Vitamins B-1 is possible, or the coagulating elements; then poisons from hydrochloric acid, or excesses of same in the system, as combined with influences without.

Hence the inability for the coagulation, or for abrasions or injuries to heal.
