 Product Description

HELICHRYSUM - Helichrysum gymnocephalum

From Flowering Top. Madagascar. Steam Distilled

Main Uses: Blood Cleanser, Hematoma, Liver, Lymph, Scarring, Hearing, Anger.


To explain the species Italicum vs. Gymnocephalum:

From Corsica, we have Helichrysum italicum. There is a component in this oil, curcumene, which is thought to add cell rejuvenation and tissue healing effects. The small nerol content suggests adding this oil to anti-fungal blends is a good idea-it may have an anti-fungal action, and is healing for the infected skin. The small percentage of ketones present are thought to contribute to the exceptional wound healing power of Corsican Helichrysum (we usually look for above 5%).

Considering its high percentage of neryl acetate, Corsican Helichrysum has a very calming effect. This differentiates it from the other Helichrysums. In fact, neryl acetate is rarely found in such a high percentage in any other essential oil. We can use Corsican Helichrysum for muscle spasms, irritable bowel syndrome, spastic coughing, and for painful tightness anywhere in the body. It has the aroma of honey, with a rich, penetrating, slightly fruity and herbaceous background.

From Madagascar and S. Africa we have Helichrysum gymnocephalum. This species has the highest content of 1.8 cineole, which provides deep healing for the respiratory system. Combined with the analgesic and anti-infectious properties of para-cymene, we have an oil that significantly reduces pain, is excellent for healing many types of infections, reduces tension throughout the body (especially the upper body), and is known to heal the respiratory system. This oil is great during a cold or flu. Given it's unique chemistry, it's used more for congestion, as an analgesic, for infections and headaches, and less for wound healing. The aroma is strong, fresh, and penetrating-a bit like Eucalyptus. Sharper smell than italica.

  1. Cost effective and worth every drop

    Posted by Jacquie on 4th Feb 2016

    I have been wanting to add Helichrysum to our arsenal of Essential Oils for some time now. The problem I have run into is that the cost can be so high.... This is not to say that one can put a price on their health or the health of their family, but sometimes you have to take baby steps. Well my baby steps have finally lead us to this purchase and Lisa's prices cannot be beat!
