The fourteenth chapter of Leviticus, 14:54-56, describes a blend of the essential oils of 50% cedarwood and 50% hyssop for various skin issues such as itches, scales, scall, risings, swellings, scabs, rashes, lesions, eczema, pimples, eruptions, skin spots, and/or any "leprous" disease, which could include dermatitis, psoriasis, skin cancers, and even leprosy, itself. The Biblical remedy suggests applications of the oil blend to the right ear, the right thumb, and the right big toe for skin issues which are all emotional reflex points for the right brain through which emotional issues can be resolved and released. In other words, use the oils to address the core of the condition, rather than treating just the symptom.
