Note: The article on WebMD (see link below for full article) states:

"Indigo naturalis is a traditional Chinese medicine derived from the plant Strobilanthes formosanus Moore. ...Lin's team mixed the indigo powder with a base made of petroleum jelly, yellow wax, and olive oil."

The original published article concluded that: "Topical indigo naturalis ointment was a novel, safe, and effective therapy for plaque-type psoriasis."

Using Indigo Naturalis for psoriasis of the scalp. Recently a customer called to reorder Indigo and stated that it helped control his psoriasis of the scalp. We asked how he used it and he stated that he took one Sanjiu packet of Indigo and ground the powder even finer, then mixed the powder into one tablespoon of a natural brand of shampoo. Then he used it to shampoo his scalp. He did this daily and was very happy with the results.

If you have psoriasis of the scalp and this helps you please let us know. Thanks!  -EETW, 7/30/07

Another customer told us recently that it took several months of application to clear up his psoriasis (which was extensive).  -EETW, 3/30/09

Customer N.K. of Wayland, MA stated that the indigo is miraculous! She grinds the granules into a finer powder and then mixes with Emu oil then applies to the skin. Emu oil is said to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin. She also recommends using probiotics as part of the therapy. -EETW 9/6/12
