First of all, what is lichen planus?

It is a disease whose origin is still unknown, quite rare, which has seen a sharp increase in recent years, without the cause being known. Lichen planus affects the skin and mucous membranes, tends to become chronic, and is unbearable and worrying for those affected. The face is rarely affected.

The causes of lichen planus can be various:

  • Hepatitis C
  • Flu vaccine
  • Certain pigments, chemicals, and metals
  • Pain relievers such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) and naproxen (Aleve, others)
  • Certain medications for heart disease, high blood pressure, or arthritis
  • Autoimmune reaction (the body produces toxic molecules it cannot eliminate).

How does lichen planus manifest?

The basic skin symptom is a hexagonal papule of varying size (2 to 4 mm in diameter), pink-purple (but it can be brown or whitish). The usual areas of involvement are the forearms, wrists, legs, and the lumbar region. Less commonly, it can affect the external genital organs, palms of the hands, soles of the feet, and the waist. It can also affect the nails of the hands and feet.

How to treat lichen planus on the skin?

According to testimonials from affected individuals, lichen planus is highly disabling, both aesthetically due to itching and because of its chronic nature. It is essential to use ingredients that treat both symptoms and causes.

Treating the symptoms of lichen planus

It is crucial to relieve itching with anti-inflammatory molecules, often present in vegetable and essential oils such as hemp oil, sea buckthorn oil, or rosehip oil. Essential oils such as German chamomile or Roman chamomile, true lavender, or spike lavender (in case of intense itching) can also help soothe itching.

These molecules not only calm itching but also reduce the inflammation responsible for skin necrosis (the origin of scales, which are dead skin).

Targeting the causes or the terrain of lichen planus

It seems that the immune system is at fault. Modern diseases occur because we absorb many toxic ingredients in our diet (pesticides, fertilizers, unnatural food ingredients, etc.) that our liver must eliminate.

We are stressed and produce a large amount of cortisol, which saturates the liver and must also be eliminated. When the liver is overwhelmed, it no longer performs its function of stimulating our body's immunity against external aggressions.

Thus, when our liver is not functioning properly, we develop many diseases such as eczema, psoriasis, or lichen planus. Our skin then takes over to compensate for the liver's dysfunction. Therefore, repairing the liver is necessary.

Studies also focus on the impact of the digestive system (intestinal permeability).

Protocol to Relieve Lichen Planus from the Inside and Outside

  • Do a 20-day liver detox in spring and autumn (based on black radish, artichoke, and fumitory ampoules, available in organic stores or pharmacies) and regularly consume garlic (immune stimulant).
  • Use natural ingredients rich in hepatodraining molecules, such as Greenland ledon essential oil or rosemary verbenone essential oil. (consult an aromatherapist for dosages and proper application)
  • Apply essential oils that boost immunity, such as ravintsara and black spruce. (consult an aromatherapist for dosages and proper application)
  • Apply carrier oils that soothe inflammation.
  • Restore the skin's acid-base balance, as it has often lost this balance. To do this, use hydrosols such as German chamomile or Italian helichrysum, which have an acidic pH. You can also add aloe vera gel with multiple therapeutic properties for the skin.
