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 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. But each recipe can be adjusted to what works best for the skin:

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

After 10 days I used this recipe:

2. Gentle Baby, 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:

3. Jojoba, Basil, Melrose, and Myrrh.

4. 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 the the essential oil blend that got 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.
