Although we’ve tried dozens of home remedies and treatments for psoriasis, one of our favorite natural remedies for psoriasis is essential oils. Essential oils act like mild medication for the condition, soothing redness, reducing itchiness, and hydrating the skin.

The Best Essential Oil Recipe for Treating Psoriasis
According to a review conduced by Healthline, the following essential oils work best in relieving symptoms of psoriasis. Geranium oil reduces inflammation on the skin and helps to relieve stress (which can trigger outbreaks). Lavender oil relieves pain and itching and prevents the skin from getting infected. Tea tree oil reduces inflammation and prevents infection. Peppermint oil reduces itching and provides a cooling feeling. Fractionated coconut oil hydrates the skin and relieves dryness. A mix of these oils will provide soothing, healing relief when treating psoriasis.
- 5 drops geranium essential oil
- 5 drops lavender essential oil
- 5 drops tea tree essential oil
- 3 drops peppermint essential oil
- Fractionated coconut oil
Add the geranium oil, lavender oil, tea tree oil, and peppermint essential oil to a 5 ml glass amber bottle. Fill the rest of the bottle up with fractionated coconut oil. Place the lid on tightly and shake to mix the oils. When a psoriasis outbreak hits, rub directly into the affected area several times a day until the patches heal completely.
