Abstract

The study utilized the quasi-experimental design, the non-equivalent control group pretest-posttest design. There were 80 total numbers of respondents male or female between 7-12 years old. Purposive sampling or judgemental sampling was used in this study. A tool adapted from the study of Mr. Roberto Cruz III was used. Data was analysed using percentage distribution, mean, and t-test. Most of the respondents were males. Most of the respondents in the control group and treatment group had moderate superficial wound healing on day one (1) before the application of gumamela oil extract and on day five (5), a totally healed wound for both the control and treatment group. However, the mean of the treatment group was higher. There was no significant difference on the status of superficial wound healing of the respondents before the application of the gumamela oil extract between control and treatment group. But there was a significant difference on the status of the superficial wound healing of the respondents after the application of the gumamela oil extract on the day five (5) between control and treatment group.
