I’ve had psoriasis for over 20 years. I’d like to share my story about dealing with it for 23 years and discovering natural oils treatment. Remember, I’m not a doctor – I’m just sharing what I’ve been through. This is not medical advice, nor prescription for everyone. 

My psoriasis began when I was 15, just like my mom’s. I had a hunch I’d get it because of my family history. It felt like something meant to be, but I couldn’t really understand why. I thought maybe god was punishing me because I loved to wear mini skirts even in the cold winter. 

So, my journey to treat psoriasis began with doctors and traditional medicines like Daivonex and Daivobet. I even tried UV lamp sessions in a special cabinet, sort of like a violet light solarium.

One doctor suggested injecting NaCl into my blood once a week. It was tough; some nurses even refused, worried it might harm my blood vessels if not done perfectly. Having a needle in my hand every week was mentally challenging. I did it for about a month, but sadly, I didn’t see any improvements.

All those with psoriasis know it comes and goes, sometimes linked to life events or seasons. Daivonex worked but only when I used a fresh tube. After a few weeks, it lost its effect. Daivobet didn’t work well for me; it felt ineffective.

How I discovered Natural Oils

Once, my grandmother from abroad sent me a natural oil blend that smelled like Christmas and had different herbs inside. Surprisingly, it really helped me. Sadly, I couldn’t get more because online shopping wasn’t a thing back then. But those oils made my psoriasis go away really quickly. This increased my interest about Natural oils treatment effects. 

During that time, I was smoking, drinking wine and champagne a few times a week, and eating whatever I wanted.I recall my family always saying if I quit smoking, drinking, and eat healthier, my psoriasis would vanish. I did all that, but my psoriasis persisted. No matter the medicine, it came and went.

Psoriasis seems deeper, maybe tied to consciousness, something I should explore more through meditations or dhjanas.

What I’ve realized is the combination of my actions and skincare somewhat helps control my psoriasis. Sometimes it flares up, but I’ve learned how to calm it down quickly and naturally. Unfortunately, there is no magic pill that cures everything like magic.

Here’s my plan:


No artificial or synthetic medications for me. I’ve chosen to steer clear of artificial, synthetic medi

cines. I have tried with them and without them everything is the same. Their effects are short-term, and the more I use medical creams or serums, the more side effects I experience.


I stick to a healthy Ayurvedic vegetarian diet daily, and it’s been beneficial. Simple food works best for me, like beans with cauliflower, potato with cucumber, buckwheat with tomato, or pasta with coconut cream and onions, zuccini and tomatoes. No packaged fast-food meals with loads of ingredients.

Skincare routine:

I use oil-based products, which are made out of natural oil, specifically Revita Veda’s Oil-based Body Wash, both in my morning and evening showers. It’s quite oily, so I massage it into my wet skin, allowing it to absorb and leave my skin feeling fresh and nourished. For most people with normal skin, this might be enough, but not for me. After rinsing off the Body Wash, I apply  Revita Veda body oils, choosing one  from their four types based on my mood and skin needs. I’ve tried them all, and they don’t irritate my skin; instead, they deeply moisturize and nourish it. I massage oils blend into my skin for some time—usually, the longer, the better, depending on the time I have. Sometimes my skin feels a bit sticky after,  if so I rinse skin with warm water again, but not always; it varies.

I add Revita Veda bath oil to my bath once or twice a week. This bath does wonders for my psoriatic skin, making it soft and relieving the pain of cracked skin. I soak for up to 30 minutes, then shower and apply one of the body oils afterward for extra nourishment. When my psoriasis is particularly active and causing inflammation, I wrap my affected skin in oil overnight or throughout the day, finding it helps ease the discomfort.


While I’d love to travel around Europe and explore its beautiful cities, I know I need a beach vacation at least once or twice a year. The salty water and strong sun are essential for me. Even during these beach getaways, I continue using Revita Veda body oil on my skin. It has as one of the base ingredient coconut oil that shields from the sun’s harmful effects.


I do detox campaigns at least twice a year. It’s an Ayurvedic procedure where, for 21 days, I stick to specific foods, natural Ayurvedic supplements, and lots of Ayurvedic tea. I also incorporate oils into my body care routine during these times.

Healthy Lifestyle:

Living healthily has become my daily norm. I highly doubt I’ll ever return to eating whatever, 

drinking excessively, or smoking. The feeling of having a healthy body is truly wonderful.

What science says about Natural oils and psoriasis


In my research, I’ve come across scientific articles supporting the benefits of natural oils for psoriasis treatment. For instance, according to WebMD, coconut oil can help soften and loosen psoriasis scales, but it’s not a standalone treatment. You can find more information here: WebMD Article Link.

Medical News Today suggests that as psoriasis is an inflammatory condition, castor oil might help alleviate symptoms and reduce flare-ups. More details can be found here: Medical News Today Article Link.

Moreover, an article in the National Library of Medicine confirms that selecting suitable oils can contribute to an anti-psoriatic effect, as some oils possess skin-healing properties. This article provides a

 list of suitable oils and extensive details about psoriasis: National Library of Medicine Article Link.

One key ingredient in all Revita Veda oil-based skincare products is sesame seed oil. While I haven’t found direct scientific evidence linking sesame seed oil specifically to psoriasis, there’s ample proof of its overall health benefits. You can read about it here: WebMD Article Link.

There are many natural oils with potential benefits. What I appreciate about these oils is their natural origin, often offering remedies for various illnesses. Natural solutions tend to have more benefits than side effects. In summary, proper skincare can certainly ease the discomfort of inflamed psoriatic skin, but managing it involves more than just skincare. For me, it’s a holistic process involving various approaches, and I’m always exploring new methods.
