Q & A: Rosacea


Is there anything you are aware of that causes rosacea? How would you treat rosacea? J.L. 



Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition which principally affects the face. Rosacea causes facial redness and produces small, red, pus-filled pustules (bumps). The condition worsens with time if left untreated. It can be mistaken for acne or psoriasis or some other skin allergy. 

Causes can be several, including  infection by a parasite that is a type of mite known as demodex, that infest the hair follicles and sebaceous ducts. (Dr Mark Dahl, Chairman of the Department of Dermatology at the University of Minnesota Medical School).

Another link is to Helicobacter  pylori bacteria that causes stomach ulcers. Herbal ULC-R or HP Fighter is very successful at eliminating this challenge, when taken for at least 3 bottles.

One of my Nature’s Sunshine Consultants had rosacea over ten years ago and in her research she found that the major cause of rosacea is inefficient protein digestion. This would result in undigested protein fermenting, creating toxins and causing inflammation.

The supplements that she took to cure her rosacea were:


Protein Digest Aid , Vit E & Selenium,and Essential Fatty Acids  EFA’s) such as Super Oil,  containing Flax,  Evening Primrose Oil, Salmon oil, lecithin (only available in  Canada) or Super Omega 3 , available in most countries.

Black walnut liquid tincture, especially effective for parasitic infections including mites, ringworm, lyme, and staph infections.


Apply the following 1-3 times per day:

Silver Gel or Aloe Vera Gel with Essential Oils (EOs): 2 drops Lavender, 1 drop Tea Tree Oil and 1 drop Eucalyptus.  Other Essential oil used successfully – any combination of which can be added are:  1 drop Oil of Oregano – very good anti-parasitic;  1 drop Helichrysum – prevents scarring; 1 drops Chamomile – anti-inflammatory and healing; and/or  2 drops Rose Geranium – hormonal balancing. These drops of EOs would be for one application, roughly 1/2 – 1 tsp., so you could make a larger batch for convenience. Nature’s Sunshine’s EOs are all  therapeutic quality and have so many uses in the Home Beauty and First Aid  kit. Contact us for full list and prices.

At the very least, just use Silver Gel, as this will helps with both inflammation and healing.

Others have used Black walnut liquid tincture externally, especially effective for mites, ringworm, lyme bites, staph and other parasitic infections.

Herbal First Aid with Essential Oils

These are 5 pure essential oils, plus one blend that we have come to love over the last 25 years using Aromatherapy as part of our natural healing regime.

1. Lavender – Good on burns, sunburns, scrapes bruises and insect bites – one of the few essential oils that can be applied to skin “neat”, or undiluted. We love it added to Aloe Vera Gel for all skin challenges, including dry skin, sunburn,  itchy skin, PLUS it helps deter insects!

2. Lemon – Detoxifies the body, purifies drinking water and, along with peppermint and lavender, helps fight allergies. Can also be used in natural insect repellant.

3. Peppermint – Helps relieve headaches when used with lavender, sharpens mentality and is also useful for conditions such as asthma, diarrhea, indigestion, heartburn and itchy skin. Some people are senstive to Peppermint oil, so it is best mixed with a carrier oil, Aloe Vera Gel or other lotion.

Taken internally, peppermint is a great digestive aid. One or two drops of pure peppermint oil can be put in water as a pre or post meal drink.

4. Frankincense – Good for insect bites, headaches and tension. Has been used with healthy carrier oil for massage for breasts with abnormal growths. This is included in The Paw Paw Program, A “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer Can Be Treated Naturally, by Lorene Benoit.

5. Tea Tree Oil     An Antiseptic, Anti-fungal, Tissue Healer with many uses:

Externally:  apply directly or dilute with olive oil – boils burns, cankers, cold sores, cuts, earaches, lice, thrush, ticks, leeches, pimples, bites, fungus.

Internally: Candida, infections, bacterial and viral – advice of health professional & very few drops, IF you are using an authentic grade quality.


And lastly, one of our favourite oil blends  is Tei Fu Oil, a powerful combination of  Safflower (Carthamus tinctorius,  L-menthol, eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus), DL-camphor, lavender (Lavandula officinalis), wintergreen (Gualtheria procumbens) , clove (Syzygiumaromaticum). Some its many uses include:

To obtain results with Essential Oils, they need to be of therapeutic quality, which includes proper sourcing, identification, processing and laboratory testing. Essential oils that do not meet these standard may have a pleasant aroma, but will not offer the active chemicals that effect true healing for which aromatherapy is known.
