What is jaundice?

Jaundice is a yellow discoloration of the skin (and also of the whites of the eyes). Jaundice is a symptom, not a disease in its own right. It is due to an abnormally high level of bilirubin (a yellow compound of bile) in the blood. This is usually related to a liver disease called cholestasis (arrest or impairment of bile flo...

What is jaundice?

Jaundice is a yellow discoloration of the skin (and also of the whites of the eyes). Jaundice is a symptom, not a disease in its own right. It is due to an abnormally high level of bilirubin (a yellow compound of bile) in the blood. This is usually related to a liver disease called cholestasis (arrest or impairment of bile flow). Possible causes include swelling of inflamed tissues and blockage of ducts by gallstones, cancer, or even parasites.

Interesting essential oils for jaundice

A small number of essential oils have been found to be helpful in treating jaundice.

The oils that are most likely to help are:

  • Chamomile and Peppermint, to relieve nausea in the early stages.
  • Lemon, Rosemary and Thyme to strengthen the liver.

Dilute in a carrier oil, and massage very gently over the whole area of the liver, stomach and abdomen. If the liver is too distended for massage to be comfortable, you can use cold compresses of Chamomile, Rosemary or Thyme.

You might have to do this on a daily basis for weeks. The recovery period from jaundice is indeed often very long, with general debility and digestive difficulties lasting for many months, and in some cases even longer. Essential oils help alleviate symptoms during this period, but will not magically cure jaundice.

Due to this long recovery time, you may become quite depressed, so adding an antidepressant oils can be a good idea. Bergamot is the one that seems to be the most valuable during convalescence.
