Continuing on with my thesis, today I’m looking at some of the treatment I used.
My basic premise for my thesis was to soften and eliminate existing seborrheic keratosis patches.
From my thesis:
The first step was to mix an oil blend to help moisturize the skin. The oil blend is as follows:
45 ml Sesamum indicum oil (Sesame) 45 ml Helianthus annuus oil (Sunflower) 10 ml Triticum vulgare oil (Wheatgerm)
10 drops Daucus carota oil (Carrot Root)
30 drops Achillea millefolium essential oil (Yarrow)
20 drops Anthemis nobilis essential oil (Roman Chamomile)
10 drops Helichrysm italicum essential oil in a 10% dilution with Jojoba Oil (Helichrysm)
Sesame oil was chosen as it is good for inflammed skin conditions and with the light sunscreen factor it helps protect the skin at least a little bit from exposure to the sun.
Sunflower oil is also good for dry and mature skin. Rich in vitamin E and fatty acids, this makes it useful for skin conditions and moisturizing.
Wheatgerm is another oil that is rich in vitamin E and fatty acids, useful for dry skin, and helpful in repairing skin damage from sun exposure.
Carrot Root Oil helps the skin with the rejuvenation process as some of the seborrheic keratosis patches come off.
Yarrow was chosen as it is good for inflamed skin conditions, helps tone the skin, and helpful in healing wounds.
Roman Chamomile is good for treating skin conditions, has cell regenerative properties and is good for sensitive skin.
Helichrysm is great for skin conditions, helping with cellular regeneration and wound healing.
My client was to use the mix twice daily on her skin. Within about 2 weeks, there was a noticeable softening of the patches and some smaller patches were starting to come off.
This was definitely an encouraging sign! More to come next week!
