Treatment of skin disorders with basil and citronella essential oils

Basil and lemongrass herbs have been used extensively since ancient times for food and medicinal purposes. The basil herb, scientifically known as Ocimum sanctum, contains a lot of nutritional value and has been commonly used for generations in Europe for food preparation. In India, holy basil is also known as the queen of herbs in the ancient Ayurvedic system of herbal medicines, as it has healing properties for the mind, body and spirit.

The natural herbal remedy contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and is very effective in treating a variety of infections such as skin infections, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, cuts and wounds, and acne control, due to its antibacterial properties. It’s also great for stopping itchiness that results from these skin disorders or even mosquito bites!

Infections and inflammations of the skin are commonly the manifestation of acute stress due to the deterioration of the body’s immune system and hormonal imbalance, probably due to overwork, lack of sleep or nutritional imbalances. Basil is well known for its stress-relieving and spirit-energizing effects. Therefore, it not only addresses the physical manifestations of skin breakouts, but also addresses the potential root cause of the problem by calming and relaxing the body and mind.

When added to natural plant-based soap, basil essential oil provides the ideal bath companion, the perfect ending to an exhausting, stressful and hectic day. With regular use, you will notice that your skin tone improves with each application and the marks and scars on your skin will slowly lighten over time. Even untroubled skin will improve, bringing out the radiance of dull skin and hair.

Lemongrass essential oil blends perfectly with basil essential oil, and when you add this powerful blend to natural handmade soap, you have a highly effective daily herbal solution to skin problems.

Lemongrass, which is the herb native to Southeast Asian countries like Malaysia, is commonly used in cooking curries and other Southeast Asian delicacies, as well as in herbal medicines for oral consumption and for external topical application.

Lemongrass essential oil also contains many medicinal and antimicrobial properties. When added to natural handmade soap, it inhibits microbial and bacterial growth on the skin and is considered very effective in fighting common skin conditions caused by bacteria and fungi, such as ringworm and rashes.
