What are the best oils to soothe and heal scalp psoriasis? This is what I’m going to discuss with you, not only the healthiest and healing oils, but how to apply them to get the most benefits out of them.
The first oil to use to help your scalp psoriasis and other skin psoriasis is a mixture of olive oil and castor oil.
Both olive oil and castor oil are extremely soothing for scalp psoriasis and skin inflammations in general, it is because they are very rich in anti-inflammatory compounds, these compounds are the ones responsible for decreasing the levels of inflammation in your skin and helping you feel at ease and calmer, in other words, they are going to lower the pain levels related to psoriasis.
I’m sure that you’ve already noticed that whenever skin psoriasis is present, it will be accompanied by an itchy sensation and also a redness of the skin, this redness is simply an inflammation!
So, take one tablespoon of olive oil and one tablespoon of castor oil, this is the amount you need for four days, mix them together and then use a cotton ball and start applying the oil mixture to your psoriasis scales.
The next amazing oil to soothe psoriasis is tea tree oil.
I cannot describe how much tea tree oil is beneficial for soothing psoriasis and helping psoriasis patients deal with their pain and discomforts, this oil is simply amazing, it is not only very soothing, but it is also extremely beneficial and nutritious to the skin.
What I really like about this amazing oil is the fact that it is extremely rich in vitamin E, which is a fantastic antioxidant and also a great anti-inflammatory agent.
Here is how to apply tea tree oil:
Mix tea tree oil with jojoba oil, half a quarter of a teaspoon of tea tree oil with one teaspoon of jojoba oil, then use a cotton ball and start applying the oil mixture to your skin patches.
The next amazing oil is pure argan oil.
Although this oil is very expensive and somehow very rare, I think that it has huge potential when it comes to scalp psoriasis.
It is because it is very rich in vitamin E and anti-oxidants, like tea tree oil, however it is smells good and has a nutty flavor, in general, argan oil is healthy for your scalp psoriasis because it is not going to cause more inflammations, even if you use a lot, unlike tea tree oil. This will make it an ideal oil to apply before going out as the tea tree oil and olive oil are going to be a bit smellier.
The next soothing ingredient I would like to talk to you about is a very common one and it is not annoying at all, I’m talking about water.
You may think that I’m fooling with you for saying that water is very soothing when it comes to psoriasis, but the truth is that water is indeed very helpful and will help you not only soothe the pain, but also get rid of external dead skin plaques which are annoying and ugly looking!
However before applying water, you need to mix it with a very soothing ingredient, this ingredient is aloe vera.
Here is what you need to do:
Get yourself a high quality aloe vera gel, then take one teaspoon and mix it with half a glass of warm water, then let it cool.
Then simply take a cotton ball and apply the soothing water to your psoriasis skin patches.
These are the best ways to soothe and help your psoriasis in general and scalp psoriasis in particular, if you know other ways, share them in a comment.
