Helichrysum Essential Oil is essential for your medicine cabinet and your life in general. It helps to relieve headaches, migraines, and muscle pain. Its strong antispasmodic and expectorant properties can benefit chronic coughs and asthma. With anticoagulant properties, it is useful in the treatment of bruising. Great for abscess, acne, burns, wounds, etc.
The word Helichrysum comes from the Greek helios = sun, and chrysos = gold, the oil has proven to be as powerful as the sun, and as valuable as gold, at least to me.
Dr. Schnaubelt attests to its great antiseptic powers without the pain and burning associated with disinfectants. He also advocates its use to reduce pain and swelling, saying that
“Helichrysum italicum works for all conditions in which inflamed tissue needs to be calmed down and regenerated”. One of the components of helichrysum is Beta-Diones which is not toxic for people and has anticoagulant properties, making it very effective for the treatment of hematomas.
Helichrysum essential oil has a very positive effect on emotions, when there is an enduring anger, bitterness or resentment. According to Gabriel Mojay, “Everlasting oil’s capacity to dissolve clots give it on a subtle level, the power to break through the deepest, most “stuck” of negative emotions
