It's an annoying problem with an annoying
name: psoriasis.

This skin condition can create enormous problems
with a person's self-confidence, as it generally

cannot be concealed.
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition which
can target skin, nails and even joints.

The autoimmune condition is a result of the
body creating new skin cells faster than older

cells can be eliminated.
This leads to an avalanche of skin cells;
they pile up, push up and leave the skin looking

dry.
Also, these silvery patches itch continuously.
So what's at the root of this skin cell
build up?

It can stem from many causes, including diabetes,
high levels of stress, obesity, medications

and smoking.
Infections can also worsen the condition.
Although there is no absolute cure for psoriasis,
symptoms can be controlled by topical oils.

In today's video we'll review a few specific
types of oil treatment.

Tea Tree Oil
This oil, which is from the leaves of the
Melaleuca tree, contains antiseptic and anti-inflammatory

properties.
These can provide much needed relief from
redness, itching, and burning sensations.

Tea tree oil exfoliates dry, flaky skin cells
and softens the plaques, thus reducing itching.

As the anti-inflammatory properties penetrate
the skin layers, they reduce swelling and

redness.
Occasionally, the oil can lessen the appearance
of scar tissue caused by psoriasis.

Try experimenting with one of the following
types of tea tree oil treatment:

1.
Topical solution
Since tree tea oil is potent, it should always
be diluted with water or other oils.

Applying full strength could result in irritation
and burning sensations.

To create your own solution for application
of the scalp, nails or skin, follow these

directions:
In a small cup of water, mix in a few drops
of tea tree oil

Dab a cotton ball into the solution to moisten
Apply the solution to the skin, scalp or nails

Allow it to remain overnight
In the morning wash the areas and pat dry

Repeat daily
Other natural moisturizers such as olive or
coconut oil can also provide a soothing effect.

After bathing, you may want to add a drop
or two of tea tree oil with your daily moisturizer.

2.
Tea Tree Oil Bath
An immersion in a tub of water enhanced with
tea tree oil can provide a world of relief

to those who suffer with psoriasis.
Simply add a few drops of tea tree oil, almond
oil, or olive oil to your bathwater.

Soak for 20 minutes daily.
3.
Tea Tree Oil with Shampoo
Dry itchy skin that's under attack by psoriasis?
First, make sure your shampoo contains very
few chemicals.

And when you shampoo:
Mix 1 part of tea tree oil with 10 parts shampoo
Once completely blended, shampoo your hair

Rinse your hair thoroughly with warm water
Repeat as needed

You may also check your health and beauty
aisles for shampoos that already contain tea

tree oil.
Tips and Precautions
Consult your dermatologist before using any
type of topical treatment

Remember tea tree oil is too potent for any
direct application

Use 2 – 5% concentration of tea tree oil
in homemade remedies

Always perform a patch test on healthy skin.
If you observe adverse reactions, do not use.
If the symptoms of psoriasis become worse
instead of better, stop using it.
