Helicrysum Essential Oil is perhaps best known for its uses in first aid and trauma, as well as its ability to protect against swelling and scars.

Being antihaematoma, Helicrysum Essential Oil stimulates the hormones that dissolve blood clots caused by a haemorrhage.

Antiphlogistic components help to rid the body of inflammation caused by fever, as well as helping to prevent the occurrence and severity of fever.  Because this oil has other febrifuge properties, it may also address the root causes of a fever as well as lowering the fever itself. Since the oil is also anti-inflammatory, it helps remove inflammation caused by other conditions as well as fevers.

Individuals experiencing chronic coughing with or without congestion may experience relief, thanks to Helichrysum Essential Oil’s antitussive qualities and its expectorant qualities. Also, as a mucolytic, this product supports the thinning of thick or hardened mucus, and its subsequent removal from the body.

Containing cicatrisant properties, Helichrysum Oil helps wounds to heal quickly, and may prevent or minimize scarring. Its emollient qualities help promote smooth, healthy skin.

The oil’s cholagogue properties encourage good digestion by supporting the discharge of bile and by reducing acids.

Being antiseptic, antimicrobial and anti-fungal, the oil helps protect the body from infections and diseases caused by bacteria, fungi and microbes.

Also a diuretic, Helichrysum Essential Oil supports and encourages urination, thereby aiding in the removal of toxic substances, helping to lower blood pressure, encouraging the loss of fat and improving digestion.

The splenic qualities support a healthy spleen, an organ instrumental in generating new and healthy red blood cells. This oil is a good choice for individuals with anemia.

The oil’s cytohylactic properties indicate that it helps to keep cells healthy as well as stimulating the body to generate new cells.

Essential Oils are natural, contracted oils that have the fragrance of the plant from which they originated. Most typically, the oils are extracted from the plant through distillation. In many cases, the distillation process involves the use of steam.  As steam passes through the plant’s stems, seeds, flowers or leaves, it assists in vaporizing the volatile compounds.

While essential oils have various uses, they have a long documented history of medicinal value. Essential Oils can support overall health, act as a treatment or remedy for various medical or psychological conditions or help prevent infections and illness.

Essential Oils should not be used on animals as they can have adverse effects.
