doTERRA Essential Oil Support For:
Scleroderma is a connective tissue disease that involves changes in the skin, blood vessels, muscles, and internal organs. It is a type of autoimmune disorder, a condition that occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys healthy body tissue.
The cause of scleroderma is unknown. People with this condition have a buildup of a substance called collagen in the skin and other organs. This buildup leads to the symptoms of the disease.
The disease usually affects people 30 to 50 years old. Women get scleroderma more often than men do.
Some types of scleroderma affect only the skin, while others affect the whole body.
- Localized scleroderma usually affects only the skin on the hands and face. It develops slowly, and rarely, if ever, spreads throughout the body or causes serious complications.
Systemic scleroderma, or sclerosis, may affect large areas of skin and organs such as the heart, lungs, or kidneys. There are two main types of systemic scleroderma: Limited disease (CREST syndrome) and diffuse disease.

Details of Recommended Oils:
Deep Blue Rub: It is a blend of some of the most effective analgesics, and anti inflammatory oils that exist. Blue Tansy, Camphor, Helichrysum, Osmanthus, Peppermint and wintergreen to name a few. Wintergreen is an oil often associated with analgesic creams such as icy-hot and Ben-Gay. Primarily because these products use a synthetically produced chemical (methyl salicylate) that originates from wintergreen (gaultheria procumbent) and has proven effective as a warming pain reliever. However by using Deep Blue, you actually experience the product in its natural 100% pure state.
Geranium: Due to its analgesic characteristics it is often used as a topical agent for individuals suffering with arthritis or rheumatism. Geranium stimulates the immune system, aids in poor circulation, is anti-mucolytic, uplifting to the mood and its calming effect on the nervous system is pronounced.
Lemongrass: is for healing ligaments, tendons, and cartilage, it helps with regenerating connective tissue, circulation, repairing ligaments, tissue regeneration, muscles and bones
Marjoram: is for muscles, spasms, rheumatism, sprains, stiff joints, aches, neuralgia, pain, tension—good for muscles and bones
AromaTouch: is great for pain, inflammation, spasms, circulation and healing.
