For those of us that suffer from chronic skin conditions life can often feel hard to fully enjoy. Stress, anxiety and depression can set in exasperating the condition and making it more likely we’ll suffer more skin issues in the future.
We deserve to feel comfortable in our own skin. We deserve to feel comfortable while out on a date. We deserve to feel happy and confident in social situations. We deserve to be free of horrible and painful skin conditions! In this article I’ll cover some easy natural remedies for psoriasis.
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition and breakouts are marked by reddish, itchy, scaly and dry patches of skin. Psoriasis occurs due to the body’s inability to shed excess skin cells which pile up on the surface on the skin.
Luckily, psoriasis IS treatable! A proper regimen can significantly reduce psoriasis breakouts with the additional help of essential oil based treatments. It doesn’t matter where you suffer from breakouts on your body these natural remedies using essential oils can help.
Essential Oils for Psoriasis
Lavender is considered the most useful essential oil for skin related conditions and has amazing restorative properties. The anti-inflammatory properties of lavender oil are great at healing and restoring skin affected by psoriasis. It is great for soothing inflamed, dry and flaky skin as well as promoting healing and new skin growth. Lavender oil blends great with nearly all other essential oils and some of my favorites to blend it with are cedar wood, clove, clary sage and geranium.
Tea tree oil has a number of natural healing benefits which include anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Not only will it reduce the inflammation of psoriasis ridden skin, it will also support your immune system promoting long-lasting skin health.
Another oil with powerful healing abilities, myrrh essential oil is often used in the treatment of eczema, rashes and psoriasis. It is also used in many beauty products as a preventative measure for aging skin and developing stretch marks. Myrrh’s qualities include being an antiseptic, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory – all of which help to heal and restore damaged skin.
Cedarwood oil cleanses impurities from your skin and restores natural balance to both oily and dry skin. It removes excess fluid from the skin, causes it to contract making skin tighter and removes toxins that accumulate over time. This oil is not only useful for psoriasis but great for cellulite too.
Angelica oil is excellent at removing built up toxins from the body and skin, this makes it a great detox essential oil. It improves liver function which is the body’s natural detoxifier and this helps to clear up psoriasis ridden skin. Angelica oil will also leave your skin clearer, brighter and less congested.
