The best home remedies for psoriasis are not always those that we think they are. There are so many well wishers out there that we are not short of recipes and remedies that have proven to be effective. I have selected for you 7 of them that I felt could be of interest to you, or someone that you know; friend or family, neighbor, etc.
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that manifests by red patches covered with whitish scales. This disease has a link to an inflammation of the epidermis that usually reaches 2 to 3% of the world population, which makes it a total of 125 million people that suffer of this condition around the world. The cause is due to an acceleration of the renewal of the epidermis and manifests itself under 3 causes:
- the genetic factor
- the psychological factor (stress, psychological shock …)
- the infectious factor

So here are my best home remedies for psoriasis:
1 – A sodium chloride cure (salt)
Discovered by a French surgeon during World War One, the first use of sodium chloride (which is in fact salt) was utilized to fight infections and increase the power of white blood cells (the immune system). Excellent for the skin, sodium chloride will help you regain the radiance of your skin in 3 weeks! For example, you can add a handful of coarse salt to your bath.
2 – Shea butter
The tree bearing these is the shea tree, or shi tree (common name). It is found in West and Central Africa. Shea butter comes from the fruit of the shea tree. You can also buy it on Amazon in the form of hand cream. It is very pleasantly smooth when you apply it.
Apply it to your wound, it will quickly relieve the feeling of pain.
3 – The banana peel
Banana peel heals rashes and itching. Rub the inner part of a banana skin on the affected area. On first application, it could be that it looks redder than originally, but don’t worry, it’s common. By repeating this operation daily, you will see an improvement very rapidly.
Banana skin also promotes healing, so you can use it for all sorts of skin damages.You can also use a banana peel to:
- reduce irritation and tingling of the skin when stung
- eliminate warts naturally
- eliminate acne
- prevent wrinkles
- treat dry skin
- moisturize the skin
If you want to know how to go about making use of a banana skin for each of these purposes, just contact me below and I will be pleased to do so.
4 – Argan oil
Rich in vitamin E, argan oil is an antioxidant that will work wonders on your skin. The little plus, it is natural and without any additive product.
This oil has become familiar to us … Yet, it has long remained the beauty secret of Moroccan women. It is extracted from the fruit of the argan tree – a tree that grows mainly in southwestern Morocco – by cold pressing of almonds (small almonds).
The Berbers used to apply this elixir to their faces to protect themselves from the aggressive desert wind. They also used it to treat cardiovascular diseases.
In the 2000s, argan oil gains a new notoriety thanks to studies that highlight its properties. Its production is mechanized, increasing the yield and promoting its use around the world. With its soothing and relipidante action (lipid replenishing capability), this oil is very appreciated by dry skin.
It is also an ally of mature skin, thanks to its revitalizing, healing and antioxidant action.
In addition, it protects hair from dryness and prolongs the shine of colorations. Argan oil has become an essential ingredient in cosmetics.
It has thus found its way to becoming an excellent product capable of helping the psoriasis sufferer.
5 – Aleppo soap
Aleppo soap restores the hydrolipodic film, natural skin protector and is therefore very convenient for sensitive skin or prone to psoriasis.
There are many testimonials from people with eczema or psoriasis who have tried all the treatments and who have seen their condition diminish under the effect of Aleppo soap.
Aleppo soap gives very good results in the treatment of the benign form of psoriasis, especially in scalp disorders:
- Soap the scalp with Aleppo soap, then rub with your fingers. Leave for a minute, rinse.
Severe cases of psoriasis require often heavier treatments of which Aleppo soap can be an effective supplement.
The Aleppo soap brings a significant improvement of the disease:
- Prefer a soap with 25% of bay laurel oil for the daily wash but go for the soap of Alep at 40% only in case of outbreaks.
Aleppo soap is not toxic at all, even for strong dosages. However, these are better for outbreaks, because if you use soap heavily dosed daily, you will be disarmed in case of onset of a crisis because the skin will be used to high doses of laurel and the treatment will be less effective.
6 – Black cumin oil
Its real name “Nigel” is a plant with many virtues still unknown to the general public. It has excellent exfoliating and nourishing properties for the treatment of skin infections such as psoriasis.
The black cumin oil, well known in the Mediterranean basin for its many virtues and was also in use as a powerful remedy during ancient Egypt.
In local use, unlike many essential oils, black cumin oil can be applied pure directly to the skin. For the face and the body, you can massage it so that it penetrates well into the skin.
7 – Aloe vera gel
Aristotle or Hippocrates was already using it for its healing virtues. Containing enzymes that promote cellular regeneration, Aloe Vera helps treat psoriasis.
How to use aloe vera?
You will find various aloe vera products on the market to reduce psoriasis. They are generally in the form of ointments or gels to apply locally with a light massage. We advise you to check on the packaging the origin and the actual content of aloe vera. Some manufacturers do not hesitate to highlight the presence of plant extracts in their products but in reality it is only a very small percentage.
The alternative is to grow one or more aloe vera plants at home and cut the leaves as you may need and to extract the gel “miraculous” virtues. This plant is very hardy and you can even grow it in pots inside an apartment.
Finally, it is always good to remind you that everyone reacts differently and the combination of aloe vera and psoriasis may not give the effects you hope for but you really have nothing to lose trying, quite the opposite.
I hope that this collection of the best home remedies for psoriasis will help you find one or more that you would like to try, or perhaps share with someone that you know it might help.
