Thank you all for showing interest in the article on Helichrysum or ‘Everlasting Oil’ that I posted a few days ago. Many readers have mailed in saying that they would like to start using this oil but do not know how to go about it. Here, I have compiled some easy-to-use aromatherapy recipes and solutions that will let you reap all the positive benefits of this amazing oil on an everyday basis.
Uses of Undiluted Helichrysum Oil
For hematomas: Helichrysum is known for its ability to dissolve blood clots and promote healing of surrounding tissues. Apply this oil neat (undiluted) over the affected area every day.
For cuts and burns: Helichrysum possesses anti-inflammatory and tissue-regenerating properties. Apply a couple of drops neat on the affected area to soothe the irritated skin and aid healing.
Uses of Diluted Helichrysum Oil
You can make your own Everlasting Oil blend by adding 10 drops of Helichrysum to 1 oz of any carrier oil such as Jojoba. This blend is useful for treating many common ailments.
For headaches: Rub a few drops of the blend between your fingertips and massage your temples and back of the neck with it.
For asthma and bronchitis: Massage some of the blended oil onto your chest.
For irritable bowels: Massage your lower abdomen with the blend twice a day.
For pain relief: Massage the blended oil into sore muscles and inflamed joints using circular motions.
For skin care: With your fingertips, apply a few drops of the blended oil onto clean, dry skin. Use light pressure and slow press-and-release movements. The oil nourishes the skin and is very effective against wrinkles.
For Anxiety and Depression: Before going to bed, apply the blended oil to your solar plexus, and allow all negative emotions to be released. Helychrisum oil can help heal deep psychological wounds and emotional scars.
I hope you enjoy using this oil. Please let me know if you have any queries – I will be very happy to answer them!
