How to treat Psoriasis using essential oils

Make a Massage oil to Treat Psoriasis

Psoriasis is very hard to treat and patience must be applied when treating it. It is a chronic inflammatory skin condition and you can recognize it by the pink patches with silvery scales that overlap each other. Many factors contribute to psoriasis including genetics, stress, diet, environmental, and the health of the liver. You must seek the advice of a medical practitioner to find the underlying causes or there will be no permanent cure.

Head outside for 20 minutes to get some vitamin D and/or take a supplement. You can also treat this condition with essential oils.

Sometimes the psoriasis can get so bad and cause an infection. Be sure to take an oatmeal bath daily and keep your skin clean and soft to help loosen the silvery scales.

Here is a recipe for a massage oil that will help keep your symptoms to a minimum and prevent infection:

10 drops of thyme oil

10 drops of bergamot oil 

30 drops of evening Primrose oil

30 drops a borage seed oil 

1/2 cup of sweet almond oil or grapeseed oil

Using a 2 ounce glass model, combine all the above oils. Blend by shaking. This makes about 1/2 cup

 

Ways to use this psoriasis massage oil blend:

Bath 

Add 1 tablespoon psoriasis massage oil blend and one cup of finely ground rolled oats into a warm bath. Mix in with the water and soak in this one bath for 30 minutes. Don't scrub the affected areas because this will irritate the skin.

Topical application

With your fingers, gently blend over affected areas as needed throughout the day. If you feel any discomfort then increase the amount of carrier oil.

Massage 

This massage blend can be read on to all areas of the body or applied only to the affected areas. After bathing or showering, while your skin is still slightly damp, pour some of the oil into the palm of your hands and massage over the body or the affected areas.

When treating psoriasis, don't use any lotions, medications or products that have chemicals or artificial ingredients. This only makes the problem worse. And remember to be patient when training psoriasis.
