Helichrysum Essential Oil In Brief

Essential Oils UK

Best known for it’s skincare applications, due to it’s anti-ageing properties, which have earned it the name Everlasting Flower, Helichrysum is nonetheless a veritable healing powerhouse…

Helichrysum Essential Oil is a critically important ingredient in FACIAL OIL No. 8

Perhaps the most important healing capability of Helichrysum Essential Oil is it’s ability to support the health of our neurological tissue. In a world drenched in environmental toxins, including, chemical & heavy metal pollutants, as well as the immense burden of electro-smog from wireless technologies and dirty energy, all contributing to a toxic soup within which our neurological health is the first to suffer.

Helichrysum Essential Oil has also been shown to elicit an anti-spasmodic response within an inflamed digestive system, which helps to reduce gut swelling, cramping and digestive pain. It does this by prompting the discharge of bile as well as neutralising acids which promotes improved digestion, thereby reducing acidity & decreasing the symptoms of acidosis.

* Take internally to promote healthy Liver + Pancreas + digestive function as well as facilitating heavy metal chelation + supporting neurological tissues.

Contraindications: None known. Helichrysum Essential Oil is Non-toxic to humans & animals. However, internal use should be avoided after surgery and by those on blood thinning meds & who are prone to internal haemorrhages.

It can also trigger colic or stomach cramps & shouldn’t be used by people with a blocked bile duct due to it’s bile stimulating effect.

Not to be used during pregnancy & breastfeeding owing to insufficient research in this area.

Whilst antiallergenic it has been shown to sometimes cause allergies in those sensitive to flowers in the Asteraceae / Compositae plant family, which includes daisies, marigolds, ragweed & chrysanthemums.

Helichrysum Oil Interesting Fact: Helichrysum, particularly when used in conjunction with Frankincense Serata Essential Oil, may support our neurological

system and can alleviate some of the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis. Use in a 1:1 ratio in a 5% dilution in your carrier oil of choice, (I prefer Sweet Almond), and apply to the temples, wrists and base of the feet up to five times a day for three weeks. Take one week off and repeat the cycle.

Twofer: Due to it’s flavonoid & antioxidant compounds which inhibit oxidative stress & cancer growth in lab experiments there is reason to believe it may protect cells against radiation-induced DNA damage, cell mutation and death & cancerous tumour growth, as does Rosemary Essential Oil.
