There are a lot of oils out there for relieving your eczema. I think that most likely if you are going to try out any new product or oil for easing your eczema symptoms, you have to stick with it for more then a day. To see the benefit of using an oil to help the eczema condition decrease, you definitely have to use it for a specific amount of time to see if it is right for you.
Three Eczema Calming Oils I Recommend You Check Out
Three oils that are good for eczema that you should have a look at are coconut oil, primrose oil and flax seed oil. All three oils are great in the benefits they give and are suitable to try on most skin types. Just remember when trying something new, especially on skin that can be volatile at times, you need to try on a small patch of skin first. Your neck may be a good place to try initially. Don’t start slathering it all over when you don’t know how you will react to the treatment.
Coconut oil is a great oil to try to soothe your eczema prone skin. It is natural, fragrance free, and available in a lot of locations. You’ll want to make sure you get virgin coconut oil so there is nothing else in it. Coconut oil is used in a hot climates where coconuts are grown regularly. It has a great source of minerals and vitamins and have medium chain fatty acids and medium chain triglycerides which is also good to protect you from heart disease. Not only can you topically apply coconut oil to your skin, hair and nails, but you can also cook with it. Coconut oil will be absorbed very easily to help connective tissue repair and healing of the skin as well as turning the clocks back to look years younger. Typically inflammation will be reduced, the immune system will strengthen and the skin will soften and become moisturized to name a few benefits.
Evening primrose oil will strengthen the immune system so the body is assisted in expelling waste and increasing circulation. Make sure in the ingredient and information section of the primrose oil bottle, it has omega 6 essential fatty acid and gamma linolenic acid. You can take it internally at approximately 4 and 8 grams daily for an adult. Smaller portions for smaller children is good. If your skin is sensitive, it can help allergy provoked skin irritation too. I have had some success with evening primrose oil. It can be strong so use a little bit and work your way up.
Flax Seed Oil
Flax seed oil is amazingly full of fatty acids like omega 6 and 3 and can help the body function more easily. It will take some time for the body to start to react and get the major benefits of taking flax seed oil but stick with and you’ll be extremely happy. Put the seed ground up in your smoothies or over your salad and make sure you get some oil in as well. Do not heat up the flax seeds and oil as it will lose it’s healing properties. It should be taken raw and kept in a cool dark place. It will also help calm your skin down if it is irritated and itchy. The dryness should start to go away with regular use and consistency everyday.
Hopefully some is this is helpful. Try using one of these eczema treatments for your skin and hopefully you’ll see that the moisturizing oils will help heal and clear up and live with eczema.
