This is an amazing Helichrysum, with over 40% Neryl Acetate (the ester naturally occuring in this oil attributed with anti-spasmodic properties). Helichrysum, also known as "Everlasting" or "Immortelle"essential oil, is a native species to eastern and northern regions of Africa. It is now adapted to cultivation in the Mediterranean regions of Italy, Yugoslavia, Spain and France. There are over 500 different species of Helichrysum though it is only the 'italicum' species that is the true (immortelle/everlasting) varietal with the regenerative actions attributed to this multi-faceted and unique oil. This particular variety has been GCMS-verified to contain among the highest levels of 'Italidiones', the di-ketones only found in Helichrysum. This variety of Helichrysum has been extensively studied in Europe for its abilities in promoting nerve regeneration, improving skin conditions, reducing inflammation while speeding healing, and reducing scar formation by encouraging tissue regeneration.

Considered a very important essential oil in aromatherapy, we are frequently delighted to receive wonderful reviews from clients who tell us about their profoundly positive healing results. This Helichrysum essential oil is light bodied and clear in color with a distinctly medicinal and herbaceous, bright top note followed by camphoraceous, musty, green tea-like middle notes and a cedar-like woody undertone. It will blend well with chamomile (both Roman and German), Lavender, Mimosa, Oakmoss, Geranium, Clary Sage, Rose, Clove and all citrus oils.

Traditional Uses

In Europe, Helichrysum has been used for generations as a tonic for respiratory complaints such as asthma, bronchitis and whooping cough. Headaches (including migraines), liver ailments, allergies and psoriasis were also commonly targeted with this flower either in tea or in oil form. As an analgesic and regerative wound healer, Helichrysum, if applied in time, combats hemorrhaging. It is also very effective in relieving joint pain associated rheumatoid arthritis, tendonitis, and reducing inflammation in cases of repetitive action injury.
