Suggested Use: Helichrysum is prized for its skin restorative properties. Use topically for aging skin and blemishes. Dilute to 2% with topical use, which equals about 10 drops of essential oil per ounce of carrier oil. Dilute more heavily with sensitive skin.
Enjoy the aroma to aid in calming the mind and meditation.
Note: The potent aroma of helichrysum essential oil makes a small amount go a long way. That is why Aromaland offers a choice: 100% helichrysum essential oil, or 10% helichrysum essential oil diluted in jojoba carrier oil.
History: Belovedly given the names of everlasting or immortelle, helichrysum has been written about since ancient Greek times as a flower that does not wither, even after it has been harvested. The dried flowers maintain their bright yellow splender.
Specific Safety Information: Not for internal use. Properly dilute essential oils with topical use. Avoid helichrysum if you have an allergy to plants in the Asteraceae family, such as ragweed. Some essential oils may be contraindicated with certain medical conditions. Ask your doctor if you have any questions before use.
