Sourced organically from a bright yellow flower from France, helichrysum essential oil is a luxurious and high-quality oil chosen for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
The helichrysum essential oil found within the Liovena precious essential oils collection boasts an impressive origin. Shipped directly from France, the pure and undiluted helichrysum essential oils are created organically and fully using the flowering and aromatic helichrysum plant. While France, Slovenia and Africa are the top-producing regions for helichrysum, it is professionally agreed that helichrysum oil from France is the best, which is exactly why we’ve chosen this country for our suppliers.
The plant has been used for thousands of years in the Mediterranean regions for its healing properties, and it’s even supposed that the flowers were dried and used for religious purposes by being given as part of offerings to the Greek gods. It is still used as a part of traditional medicine in some cultures.
In many instances, it’s difficult to correctly harvest the helichrysum flowers for usage in essential oils. However, Liovena chooses the best suppliers to ensure clients and customers receive oils directly derived from plants harvested at exactly the right time in the season, from exactly the right regions.
Helichrysum essential oil has many benefits, thanks to their healing and antioxidant properties. There’s a long list of ailments and inconveniences that can be helped by helichrysum essential oil. In addition to decreasing healing time for cuts and wounds, it also fights allergies, infection, fever, bacteria, phlegm and fungus. It also improves digestion, liver and spleen function and the nervous system. Beyond health benefits, many people just love the smell of helichrysum essential oil, and use them within aromatherapy to create a calming or relaxing environment in their home. The scent has been likened to burnt sugar, fruit and honey.
How to Use
Using helichrysum essential oil is rather easy. For starters, you can dilute it with a base or carrier oil and apply it topically onto the scar area. When applied often over the course of several weeks, you’ll see the scar begin to lighten as new skin forms. On a more temporary level, helichrysum essential oil can help speed the healing of bruises. For cramps and muscle pain, helichrysum essential oil is helpful when added to a warm bath, or even applied right to the painful area.
As mentioned above, helichrysum essential oil is also often used as a part of aromatherapy. When used in a vaporizer in small quantities, the scent can help those with respiratory issues breathe more deeply, help create a feeling of emotional security and mental calmness, prevent allergies and improve circulation.
Generally, helichrysum essential oil is very safe. However, unless you are instructed by a doctor, it is for external use only. Additionally, do not use them before or after a surgery.
