BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA. Helichrysum italicum Essential Oil, Steam Distilled, Certified Organic
Helichrysum italicum essential oil has a scent often described as sweet, woody, and warm. For blending purposes it is considered a middle to base note. It is valued for its balancing effects on emotions, easing anger and destructive feelings, and for facilitating recovery from illness and fatigue.
Helichrysum is noted as a source of anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial compounds, and is widely used in skin care products to reduce wrinkles, scars, and blemishes, including our Facial Beauty Oil
. It can be helpful for allergy symptoms such as hives, as well as for relieving spasms.
Our essential oils are sold in amber glass bottles with a dropper orifice for drop-by-drop administration. Do not ingest essential oils unless under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner or experienced aromatherapist. Essential oils should always be diluted in a carrier oil before being applied to the skin. (Some examples of carrier oils: Jojoba, Sunflower, Grapeseed, Rosehip Seed, Castor, and Avocado; gently liquified Coconut Oil, Shea, or Cocoa Butter can also work for creating thicker body care products.) Always test the diluted essential oil on a small patch of skin before applying more widely.
Maximum recommended dilution for adults: 5% (five drops per teaspoon of carrier oil).
