Soothing Serum for Psoriasis


This soothing serum includes a combination of essential oils that nourish the skin, scalp and hair.  Cedarwood and Patchouli among other things are anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antiseborrheic. The sesquiterpenes found in Cedarwood also contribute to the medicinal value of the blend. Psoriasis seems to respond particularly well to this EO and I like adding Patchouli too for its boost to circulation and cell regenerative benefits. Last but not least, diffusing Cedarwood and Patchouli together can help congestion, increase focus and repel insects. Smells really good too!

    It's well worth noting that Cedarwood can be very helpful in promoting hair growth with topical use several times a week.  Cedarwood was like a sleeping giant for me, not until I started using it in a hair serum did I realize how helpful it would be, I love it!


    • 20 drops Cedarwood
    • 10 drops Patchouli
    • Organic Emu oil (preferred for its deep penetration) or, fractionated coconut oil, almond oil or jojoba oil
    1. Add essential oils to a 1-ounce glass dropper bottle, fill with Emu oil and apply daily as needed.
