Helichrysum Italicum is considered one of the precious oils. This powerhouse oil is so popular and widely used that it’s now in shorter and shorter supply. True Helichrysum Italicum, also known as Immortelle, is grown only in a few spots around the world and is unsurpassed in its ability to rejuvenate the look of healthy, unblemished skin. While that might be what it’s most known for, the benefits certainly don’t stop there.
This amazing oil is extremely useful in skin rejuvenation as it counteracts the visible signs of aging. Not only does it reduce the appearance of wrinkles and helps smooth skin, but it’s also useful for combatting blemishes without drying out your skin. And thanks to Helichrysum’s anti-inflammatory properties, you can also use this essential oil on scars to discourage inflammation, help aid in healing, and keep skin healthy. Helichrysum also has anti-allergenic properties, making it a great natural remedy to help with the irritation that comes with hives, rashes or other skin irritation. It’s pretty much an all-around superstar when it comes to skin concerns.
Bumps & Bruises
Helichrysum’s benefits aren’t just limited to wrinkles and blemishes. It’s an extremely useful oil for the bumps and bruises that kids, or adults, always seem to get. Helichrysum is great for reducing the appearance of bruises. Plus it also aids in healing muscle tissue and reducing pain, inflammation, and swelling while enhancing blood circulation. Try our On the Mend Roller Blend to help next time someone has a bump or bruise that needs a little TLC. Plus, this oil is KidSafe, making it a great choice for the whole family.
As if Helichrysum wasn’t already amazing enough already, it can also help calm and soothe deep emotional feelings such as anger. Plus its sweet, warm, herbal woody aroma blends well with a variety of citrusy and floral oils. Next time you feel your emotions running away with you, try having a personal aromatherapy inhaler on hand with five drops Lavender, five drops Helichrysum, three drops Frankincense, and three drops Marjoram. While you’re taking a minute to get centered, take a few deep breaths to help you feel uplifted and ready to move forward.
