Natural Scalp Psoriasis Treatment With Tea Tree Oil and Olive Oil
An Accidental Discovery
Scalp Psoriasis is one of the most common forms of psoriasis. It is bad enough when your skin itches so bad you can hardly stand it. It is even worse when people misinterpret your scalp psoriasis. I have had friends inform me that I had really bad dandruff, which I thought was embarrassing enough. When I got a call from the school nurse that my daughter had lice an upon further inspection realized that she did not have lice, but flakes from her psoriasis I was beside myself. When I went looking for remedies for lice prior to inspecting my daughter I stumbled upon a treatment for lice. I figured we would do the treatment anyway since people in her class had also been sent home with lice. Surely they didn't all have scalp psoriasis. What we found was an effective, natural scalp psoriasis treatment in the form of a Tea Tree Oil and Olive Oil mixture.
We applied this home remedy to my daughters scalp, and left it in there covered with a plastic bag for about an hour. Since there was no lice to begin with I can't tell you if it was effective for that. However, a few days later I went to recheck my daughter, and I was excited to see that her psoriasis had gotten much better. We did one olive oil and tea tree oil scalp treatment and not much more than a week later her scalp psoriasis had cleared up.

4 Steps to Making the Scalp Treatment
Applying the Scalp Psoriasis Treatment
Apply Olive Oil / Tea Tree Oil mixture directly to your scalp. If you have long or very thick hair it is best to part the hair every couple inches to expose the scalp as much as possible so the mixture is not wasted.
Pay Special Attention to any bad spots of psoriasis on your scalp.

Wrapping Up Your Treatment
To help the treatment have it's full impact wrap your head in plastic. Not your face, we don't want any suffocation please. You can use things you already have around your house.
Wait About an Hour
Once you have had your treatment in for about an hour or so you can remove the plastic and wash your hair.
- If you experience some tingling that is normal.
- If you experience intense itching or burning Remove Wrap and Wash Immediately.
Your hair may be dried out due to the Tea Tree Oil. You will want to wash twice and apply a good conditioner to help keep your hair from being too dry.
