Helichrysum essential oil is distilled from the flowers of the Helichrysum augustifolium plant. The uses of this precious essential oil date as far back as ancient Greece. From skin preparations to emotional uses, this perennial herb offers many benefits. Here are 6 ways to use helichrysum essential oil.

Anti-Aging Serum

Some of the common names for helichrysum include immortelle and everlasting. This is because the flowers of the plant keep their bright yellow color even when dried. Not coincidentally, this plant is also beneficial to the skin and helps to maintain a youthful appearance. Try this simple serum.

Combine 30 drops frankincense, 20 drops helichrysum, and 10 drops lavender essential oil in a 10 mL roller bottle. Top off with fractionated coconut oil or argan oil. Roll on face after cleansing.

Reduces the appearance of spider veins

Apply a drop or two of helichrysum on areas where skin is thin and spidery veins are an issue.

Balances emotions

Feeling a little chaotic? Helichrysum is grounding and helps you to feel centered and balanced no matter what’s going on around you.

In addition, this oil can help clarify thoughts and strengthen memory skills.

Promotes Longevity

A drop of helichrysum added to your daily regimen may help promote overall wellness and longevity.

Calms the Solar Plexus Chakra

When the solar plexus is overactive, one might experience issues with control or manipulation. It also manifests as having a lot of ideas but no real direction or plan to implement them. Thus, it can result in a lack of productivity or a feeling of “spinning your wheels”. Helichrysum balances the solar plexus and can restore harmony and the focus needed to put those ideas into practice. 

Add to a Massage Oil

A bit of helichrysum in a sports massage oil can help ease muscle soreness and promote recovery after a work out.
