Psoriasis is a common skin condition that changes the life cycle of skin cells. Psoriasis causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin. The extra skin cells form thick, silvery scales and itchy, dry, red patches that are sometimes painful.
Psoriasis is a persistent, long-lasting (chronic) disease. There may be times when your psoriasis symptoms get better alternating with times your psoriasis worsens.
The primary goal of treatment is to stop the skin cells from growing so quickly. While there isn't a cure, psoriasis treatments may offer significant relief. Lifestyle measures, such as using a nonprescription cortisone cream and exposing your skin to small amounts of natural sunlight, also may improve your psoriasis symptoms. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/psoriasis/basics/definition/CON-20030838

It’s a tough disease to find relief from. So as a Certified Aromatherpist and with a passion for component blending, when I make that perfect blend that works for a medical issue where all else has failed makes me want to do the dance!
This Psoriasis cream is so smooth and works quickly. My son-in-law has suffered from Psoriasis for years, trying ointments, creams, prescriptions with very little relief. So when I made this and later was told it worked, there it is again, the dancing!! It’s time to share. If you know someone suffering for Psoriasis give this recipe a try. They'll be glad they tried it. It is a game changer! Where to get your supplies is listed below the recipe.
· 2 ounce Neem
· ½ ounce Beeswax
· 2 ounce jojoba
· 10 drops Sandalwood Santalum album or Santalum paniculatum (or Patchouli Pogostemom cablin) (astringent, anti-inflammatory, cooling, skin healing, anxiety) base note
· 10 drops Helichrysum, top
· 5 drops Frankincense, middle top
· 10 drops Tea Tree Melaleuca alternifolia, top middle
· 18 drops Lavender Lavendula angustifolia, middle top
· 6 drops Myrrh Commiphora Myrrha (anti-inflammatory, analgesic, cicatrize, calming), base note
· 4 drops Ravintsara Cinnamomun camphora cr. 1,8 cineole (immune stimulant, skin penetrator enhancer, antifungal), middle note
· 10 drops Carrot Seed Daucus carota
· 8 drops Bergamot Citrus bergamia, Top
In a double boiler (or a glass measuring cup in pan) OR in a small crockpot, melt the beeswax. Once the beeswax is melted, add your Neem Cream and let it melt.
Add Jojoba oil next.
I use a glass graduated cylinder but use a glass container that you have and blend all your EO's together.
Then add your EO blend to your mixture. Immediately pour into 1 ounce glass jars and seal. Anytime you are using Essential oils, you want to add at the end of your recipe and because essential oils are so volatile (evaporate quickly), you want to immediately seal your containers.
This is a tried and true recipe that I'm so proud of and hope you use or share it with others.
For your supplies: The Neem Cream I use is TheraNeem Organix at http://www.amazon.com . For your Essential oils, Beeswax and Jojoba oil, the best place and I love this site is https://www.aromatics.com/
