Also, referred to as Helichrysum Angustifolium, Helichrysum oil is considered by many to be the #1 most powerful healing and regenerative oil in aromatherapy.
The best distillations of Helichrysum are grown in the Mediterranean climate of Corsica.
The complex aroma of Helichrysum is intensely sweet, warm and honey-like. Its character is delicate and light.
Although costly, as with other expensive oils, Helichrysum oil can be added to blends in moderation with good results.
A sacred and gentle healing oil, Helichrysum italicum is frequently recommended for tissue repair and healing.
Helichrysum oil is legendary for its highly regenerative nature. It strong anti-inflammatory properties can be used to help prevent swelling and inflammation, as well accelerate the formation of new tissue.
Helichrysum oil may be useful for ALL conditions in which inflamed tissues need to be calmed down and regenerated.
Clinical findings support Helichrysum's notable anti-hematoma and skin regenerating activity.
In her own clinical practice, KG Stiles, has seen Helichrysum oil completely heal a swollen and massive contusion (a bruise that completely covered the bottom chin of an adult woman who had fallen onto concrete). The contusion was swollen, painful and tender to the touch and a deep, black-purplish color.
In only two days, after regular application of Helichrysum oil, the once swollen and massive contusion was only slightly visible as a faint yellowish color.
Helichrysum italicum’s regenerative powers have been used successfully to help fade both old and new scars.
Helichrysum oil functions by way of re-absorption through the blood. It actively removes cellular debris in areas of bruising. This re-absorption results in less pressure on the nerves, with subsequent relief of pain.
Through enhancing circulation of the blood, lymph and nerve supply, Helichrysum oil acts to help mend broken bones. This enhanced circulation also supports the formation of 'new' healthy skin tissue.
Helichrysum is excellent as an addition to any massage lubricant.
It can help to speed injury healing, as well as, help relieve muscle aches and joint stiffness.
Psycho-emotionally, helichrysum can be useful for healing emotional trauma and shock.
