IHelichrysum The Flower of LIfe

IHelichrysum The Flower of LIfe
I was working with an aromatherapy colleague this week and we got stuck, for lack of a better word, on helichrysum. We found ourselves sampling helichrysum from different suppliers and ooh what an experience it was.

For this weeks article I thought I'd share with you what we reviewed about this essential oil.

Helichrysum is often referred to as the Flower of life, Everlasting and Immortal. It's botanical name is Helichrysum Angustifolium and Helichrysum Italicum. It's an herb that is native to France, Italy and a few neighboring countries. Helichrysum can be a costly essential oil, yet it's shelf life will last for years.

Some of the properties of helichrysum are:

1.It's antispasmodic - spasm are unwanted or unbalanced contractions in your body.

2.Helichrysum helps clear the accumulation of blood or blood clot which result from hemorrhaging.

3.Helichrysum gives your relief in inflammation that results from fever

4.Helichrysum essential oils keep your nervous system balanced and strengthens and protects it from disorders.

5.Helichrysum warms your respiratory system. This loosens the phlegm and doesn't allow it to become deposited in your system.

6.Helichrysum is antimicrobial. It inhibits the growth of germs and protects your body from a long list of infections.

Some of the benefits of Helichrysum are:

1.It strengthens and protects your nervous system

2.It is effective in fading scars and helps to retain moisture in your skin
3.It's known to reduce the risk of heart attacks caused by the thickening of your blood
4.It removes toxic substances from your body

A few words of caution:

Always consult with an aromatherapist before using essential oil. They are very strong and should not be used without the right knowledge. Also be careful using essential oils while pregnant.

Life Never Smelled So Sweet!
