Let me preface this entry with the disclaimer that I am not a doctor so my advice should not be interpreted as professional medical opinion. That said, I do get a lot of calls from people seeking advice about various skin ailments and, after more than 15 years working in the skincare business, I feel pretty confident about what works for different skin issues.
If you're unfamiliar with the concept of an herbal infusion, you can start by picturing a steaming cup of tea. Hot water is poured through the contents of a tea bag or strainer and the essence of the herbs are suddenly transformed into a warm beverage that carries the flavors and nutritional benefits that were packed into the dry tea leaves.
Several years ago, a customer of mine reported successfully using a combination of my skincare products with a popular Chinese Medicine herb, Qing Dai (Indigo Naturalis) to relieve his psoriasis ailment. He emailed me an article on Qing Dai's clinically-demonstrated healing benefits for psoriasis which inspired my formulation of Gaia Essentials' Psoriasis Balm. I incorporated other healing ingredients proven to alleviate skin inflammation and irritation, and settled with a potent base combination of Organic Castor, Organic Hemp and Emu oils.
Since then, more customers have started using it and all are reporting amazing results. One testimony:
Two weeks ago, I bought your psoriasis balm. I wasn’t sure it would work, but the results have been amazing. Several sores are now GONE.” – Roger
