Some children will have spots all over the body, while others will have only a few one.

Essential oils for chickenpox

Several essential oils are good for chicken pox, and will help to really reduce the duration, severity and discomfort of an attack. Let see the most useful:

  • Tea-tree essential oil is the most recommended one,
  • Bergamot and Eucalyptus oils, are both anti-viral and of good help. They are valuable alternatives to Tea-tree oil.

If your child is less than 2 years old, it is not recommended to apply directly essential oils on the skin, even diluted in a carrier oil. Instead, put 2 drops of Tea-tree and 2 drops of Camomile in a bath and soak your child every few hours. An other option is 1 drop each of Bergamot, Eucalyptus, Camomile and Lavender.

For older children, you can mix 5 drops each of Tea-tree, Camomile and Lavender (15 drops in total) to 50mL of a carrier oil such as hazel oil. Then, mix with 50 mL of rosewater or distilled water and use it on the blisters as often as needed to relieve itching. Blisters treated in this way will heal much faster than with the traditional remedy, which clogs the pores and in fact slows down healing.

When an adult got chickenpox, he is often very ill, with high fever, and acute pain while the blisters are appearing. In this case, use bath with:

- 3 drops of tea-tree

  • 1 drop of Bergamot
  • 1 drop of Camomile
  • 1 drop of Lavender.

When the pain is too acute, you can also use a pain-killing lotion with 6 drops of Tea-tree and 10 drops each of Bergamot, Camomile and Lavender (36 drops in total) to 50 mL of hazel oil.
