ESSENTIAL OILS KIT, PART 5 – HELICHRYSUM
by KG Stiles, LMT, RBT, CBP, CAT
Whether you use aromatherapy as a stand alone or as a complementary first aid treatment there are several aromatic oils I’d like to recommend you have in your aromatic first aid kit.
My recommendations include important details for you to consider when purchasing an oil, such as its Latin Name, Country of Origin, Method of Extraction and Part of the Plant Used. I also list the best oils to consider when creating a synergistic blend.
HELICHRYSUM ( Helichrysum italicum ) – Italian Everlasting, Immortelle Certified Organic, Steam Distilled Blossoms, Corsica.
Its highly regenerative nature is both warm and fragrant with a slight honey-like fragrance.
Keywords: DEEP HEALING & POWERFUL REGENERATION Helichrysum is highly regenerative and one of the strongest of all the anti-inflammatory essential oils known. A sacred and gentle healing oil use Helichrysum for tissue repair and healing.
Due to its gentle nature Helichrysum may be applied neat, without the use of a carrier oil, on injured or badly bruised tissue after an accident or injury and on areas of inflammation, pain and swelling.
Please Note: As with any aromatic oil applied neat if you should experience a skin reaction please dilute with a vegetable-based carrier oil such as Jojoba.
Helichrysum affects all levels of your being – body, mind, and spirit and emotions.
Its capacity for healing damaged tissues comes from its ability to actively remove cellular debris from areas of bruising and injury which are then reabsorbed into your blood, resulting in removal of discoloration and less pressure on nerves with subsequent pain relief.
Through enhancing circulation of your blood, lymph and nerve supply Helichrysum acts to aid mending of broken bones and support healthy skin and tissue.
Use it to fade old scars and adhesions and heal skin tissue!
I’ve had consistently good results blending Helichrysum with Vetiver to relieve heart palpitations, irregular heartbeat and panic attacks!
I’ve heard reports that Helichrysum may help reduce the risk of stroke.
Use Helichrysum to enhance any blend for chronic pain relief, including Fibromyalgia, arthritis, tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Helichrysum is a very supportive and comforting oil and enhances spiritual and personal growth. Try it in a meditation blend!
Helichrysum may be beneficial for resolving old emotional scars that retain active memory loops buried deeply within the subconscious mind, as well as resolve addictions and release coping strategies that no longer serve you!
Try a synergistic blend of Helichrysum with any of the following aromatic oils: Atlas Cedarwood, Himalayan Cedarwood, German Chamomile, Clary Sage, Frankincense, Geranium, Lavender, Myrrh, Neroli, Patchouli, Petitgrain, Frankincense, Rose Sandalwood, Spikenard and Vetiver.
