Description and Uses:
Pure, undiluted Helichrysum italicum essential oil, also known as Italian Everlasting or Immortelle. This oil is one of the most useful and important oils in aromatherapy, and one that we personally always have on hand for injuries, bruising and pain relief.
This helichrysum is especially useful for skin problems, inflammation, and respiratory issues.
A wonderful addition to any first aid kit, Helichrysum oil can be applied undiluted (neat) to superficial burns (not if the skin is broken), and used directly after an injury to help prevent bruising and swelling. Use Helichrysum to enhance any pain relief blend including arthritis, tendonitis, back and neck pain, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Helichrysum essential oil is also known for its effectiveness as an anti-depressant, freshening both the mind and body.
