ESSENTIAL OILS FOR ECZEMA

Eczema – How to control symptoms and outbreaks:

If you are suffering from eczema, then here is a natural and holistic approach that can be taken to help you elevate bothersome symptoms and help get to the source of the problem.

 There are different types of eczema, or dermatitis, as it is otherwise known, and each type is characterized by itchy, dry or weeping skin that sometimes may be raw, painful or even bleed. Stress often aggravates eczema, and so does a bad diet.

Contact eczema is the most common form, which develops as a response to an allergen or irritant.

Atopic eczema is usually genetic and affects people who have family history of dermatitis of any type, allergies, and asthma. This type of eczema is characterized by very dry and intensively itchy and sometimes weepy skin (due to scratching).

Regardless of the type of eczema you have, aromatherapy can be very helpful in a way to reduce stress and relieving symptoms.

Stress is involved in almost all cases of eczema, so with the help of essential oils the level of stress can be reduced.

If it’s the case of contact eczema, then it is very important to determine what allergens seem to aggravate the skin, making sure to avoid it as often as possible.  Common allergens can be soap, detergents, cosmetics, dust, plants, food. Allergy tests are strongly recommended to determine that.

Useful essential oils for direct application on the skin:

  • Roman chamomile, cypress – these help relieve eczema, due to their anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Geranium and Lavender are healing.
  • Juniper is a very efficient blood purifier.
  • Melissa – is very efficient but should be used in a very small concentration such as 0.5% ( about 2-3 drops per 1oz of carrier oil). Cause it is a very strong oil and can cause an even worse irritation than was present already. In a very small amounts it can have a very profound effect.
  • Sandalwood – for very dry skin, not for weeping eczema.

Your body oil should contain at least  lavender, chamomile, Melissa! Total drops at about 10 drops per 1 oz of carrier oil.

For dry eczema use rich carrier oils such as argan mixing it with camellia oil, evening primrose oil, borage seed oil, sea buckthorn oil – all are rich in EFAs. Unrefined raw shea butter is very beneficial for dry eczema, if you enrich it with carrier and essential oils.

For weeping eczema – use a light fragrance free natural lotion that is very light in texture to which you add essential oils.

In conclusion, it is very important to have a proper diagnosis from the doctor. It is important, cause if the condition is misdiagnosed then treatment with essential oils can even make the condition worse.  Sometimes other skin conditions, such as keratosis are easily mistaken for dermatitis.

Any skin lesions that do not heal over time should be examined by the doctor. 

Do not use if pregnant or nursing, do not use on children.
