Psoriasis and Babchi Oil

Babchi oil is an Ayurvedic oil used for the treatment of psoriasis and other skin conditions. It is made from the seeds of the plant Psoralea corylifolia, which is native to India and Pakistan. The oil is traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat a variety of skin conditions, including psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis.

Babchi oil is rich in phytosterols, which are compounds that have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. The oil is also high in linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid that is essential for healthy skin. A study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology in 2009 found that babchi oil was effective in treating psoriasis. The study found that the oil reduced the severity of psoriasis symptoms, including itching, redness, and scaling.

Babchi oil is thought to work by slowing down the production of skin cells. This results in a reduction of the red, scaly patches associated with psoriasis. In addition, the oil is believed to have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, which can help to soothe the skin and reduce the risk of infection.

To use babchi oil for psoriasis, it is typically diluted with a carrier oil such as coconut oil or jojoba oil. It can then be applied to the affected area.

Babchi oil is a natural treatment for psoriasis that is safe and effective – but it would be sensible to carry out a patch test before using. It is important to note, however, that it can make the skin more sensitive to UV light. It is therefore important to use sunscreen and avoid sun exposure when using this oil (or use at night).
