How To Use Essential Oils For Eczema
Eczema is a skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It causes dry, itchy, and inflamed skin, and can be difficult to manage. Essential oils offer a natural and safe way to help alleviate eczema symptoms. Here's how to use essential oils for eczema:
1. Choose the right essential oils.
Some essential oils are better suited for eczema than others. Lavender, chamomile, tea tree, and geranium essential oils are all known for their anti-inflammatory and soothing properties, making them ideal for eczema-prone skin. When buying essential oils, make sure to choose high-quality, pure oils from reputable sources.
Anjoe’s Mugwort Plant Treatment Oil is 100% plant based essential oil that can relieve Eczema symptoms effectively. It does not contain fragrances, preservatives, and colourants. Our Mugwort Plant Treatment Oil is specially formulated for better absorption, and can repair damaged skin cells and nourish the skin with its enriched Vitamin E and grapeseed oil.
2. Perform a patch test.
Before applying any essential oil to your skin, it's important to perform a patch test, especially for babies and children. Apply a small amount of Mugwort Plant Treatment Oil on the chin area, inner wrist or elbow and wait for 24 hours to see if any allergic reactions occur. If there are no allergic reactions (redness, itching, or swelling), the oil can be used on the face and body.
3. Apply the essential oils.
Apply Anjoe’s Mugwort Plant Treatment Oil on your skin just like body lotion. Gently massage the oil onto the affected area, using circular motions. Do not rub too hard, as this can further irritate the skin. It's best to apply our oil after a shower or bath, when the skin is clean and hydrated.
4. Repeat regularly.
Essential oils are not a one-time solution for eczema. To see results, it's important to use them regularly over a period of time. You can use the Mugwort Plant Treatment Oil once or twice a day, depending on the severity of your eczema. Keep in mind that essential oils are not a substitute for medical treatment, and if your eczema is severe or persistent, you should consult a healthcare professional.
In summary, using essential oils for eczema can help alleviate symptoms and provide natural relief. It's important to choose the right essential oils, perform a patch test before used, and apply them regularly for best results. As with any skincare product, it's important to use caution and consult a healthcare professional if you have any concerns.
