Essential Oil Treatments for Eczema

Ezcema refers to various skin swelling problems or dermatitis in form of rashes, itchy or dry skin behind the knees, elbows or the face including feet and hands. Scratching the skin usually turns it itchy, swelling and red. It might not be contagious although it can be long lasting, worsen or get better with time. A common form of eczema is known as atopic dermatitis.

Essential oils can help reduce and treat eczema due to their anti-viral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory abilities. These include: Balsam Peru, Bergamot, Atlas Cedarwood, Virginia Cedarwood, Roman Chamomile, Geranium, Helichrysum Italicum, Hyssop, Juniper Berry, Lavender-High Altitude, Melissa Lemon Balm, Myrrh, Patchouli and Rosemary (Morocco).
