I know someone who has psoriasis. Do you think the sorbolene cream might help? Do you have anything else you think might be helpful? Thanks.

There is another post here about psoriosis of the scalp.  You should read Carolyn's suggestions until she responds specifically back to you.

Excellent choice Kristin - and actually I've known a number of sufferers who have achieved a good level of management using the whole range of pure base products - both with and without essential oils.
I would strongly suggest your friend work out a plan for regular relaxation/de-stressing time on a daily basis and if possible also either massage or reflexology - again with or without essential oils - on a weekly basis preferably for the first 4-6 weeks - or probably more realistically every 2 weeks for the first 2 months.
Finding a registered aromatherapist who can work with your friend to select appropriate essential oils for use with relaxation/meditation/massage will over time help to re-educate the immune system and subsequently the way the skin responds. I would suggest checking out the previous threads within the Forum discussing psoriasis and other skin conditions - and do please read the MindBody references - particularly eye-opening.
When your friend is ready to start incorporating essential oils - having discovered those he/she has a specific affinity for, then please remember that 'less is always more' and start with small amounts - both by inhalation and skin application if and when your friend is ready for that - then work up to amounts that seem to work best for him/her. Aromatherapy is definitively an individual experience. There are essential oils that contain components with properties that may help manage psoriasis - most authors have lists in their reference sections - but which of those semi-finalists will work best for your friend depends on whether he/she actually 'likes' the smell.
Do let me know if you have any further questions. We're here to help if we can.
