Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I had super thick psoriasis... plaque psoriasis. I've tried everything, and the only thing that seemed to help was essential oils. I started with a harsher/stronger essential oil blend and then worked down to others.

Here are the oil blends. Each has about 10 drops of essential oils and 1/4 cup of carrier oil. Each recipe can be adjusted to what works best for the skin:

* Pure shea butter, Basil, Frankincense, and the Purification oil blend. I used an electric mixer to blend well.

After 10 days I used this recipe:

* Gentle Baby oil blend, Lavender, Roman Chamomile and Myrrh. A base oil like jojoba or avocado is best for getting vitamin E.

I rotated between the second recipe and the two recipes below as often as I liked, which was every few days:

* Jojoba, Basil, the Melrose oil blend and Myrrh.

* Patchouli, Roman Chamomile, Lavender, and Tea Tree (Melaleuca Alternifolia)

I mixed and matched as I figured out what was working for me. I saw a difference after 10 days with the first blend. CortiStop also helped towards the end because it seems to block the stress that flares up the psoriasis.

I have also noticed that what eliminated the last of it was Progessence Plus. I came up with this because when I was pregnant I had zero psoriasis. I linked that to my hormones being higher in progesterone. So I decided to try it, and the Progessence Plus got the last of it in a week!
