Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I have had what appears to be vesicular palmoplantar eczema (a.k.a. acute palmoplantar eczema, dyshidrotic eczema, pompholyx, dyshidrotic dermatitis, or dyshidrosis) on one hand for about a year. However, prescription creams have done nothing for the blisters or itching.

I was recently introduced to essentials oils and decided to give them a try. I started by layering a drop of Frankincense and Lavender essential oils and covering them with a carrier oil or cream for moisturizing. This did nothing for the itching but seemed to help with the blistering.

Then I added a drop of Helichrysum essential oil, and the itching finally calmed down. Sometimes it takes a day or more for the itch to return.

Though essential oils cannot cure eczema, finally I have some relief from the itching and fewer blister breakouts. The skin on my palm is still very dry, but now it is much more comfortable.
