Helichrysum oil is known for its restorative properties and provides excellent support to
the skin, liver, and nervous system. Use for combating minor aches and
pains associated with everyday life or exercise.
It has a sweet and fruity smell with honey or nectar overtones. I like the smell of the oil, but many don’t! Whether you like the smell or not, it is an uplifting oil and assists us in releasing emotional blocks that are rooted in the subconscious mind.
It is one of the main ingredients
in PanAway Blend. Use for occasional aches and pain due to exercise or muscle strain.
Three excellent professionally made blends that contain helichrysum that are very effective for all natural detox remedies are JuvaFlex, GLF (gallbladder-liver-flush) and Juva Cleanse oil blends. They all are slightly different but they all help to support liver, gallbladder function and more.
Helichrysum oil is also used in conjunction with a Vita Flex Technique to facilitate hearing. While other oils can be used for this technique, helichrysum oil is the oil of choice.
I designed this section so you could use it as a fun and easy reference guide. It will tell you how to use your oil and what to use it for. It will also provide you with some fun tips, testimonials and oil trivia!
As I receive new tips and testimonials they will be added to the page, so check back often!
What is the Genus Species? Helichrysum italicum. It is commonly referred to as Everlasting, Immortelle or the Curry Plant!
Why is this Information Important? There are over 600 species of Helichrysum. Many of the species are not suitable for therapeutic use, and often times the species are substituted or intertwined.
This is particularly true when a plant such as this is referred to by so many common names. Searching on the internet, I found places that sold everlasting essential oil, Immortelle oil and curry plant oil! And, the genus species was not listed either. Remember, it is always best to know your source and the genus species, so you know what you are getting!
Chemistry note about Helichrysum Essential Oil – This oil is sometimes extremely hard to find in therapeutic quality because the plant is very sensitive to climate and soil composition. Any change in these factors modifies the neryl acetate percentage which gives helichrysum in part its healing properties.
It is best harvested when the neryl acetate is between 25-50%. Anything less is unacceptable. Therefore, this brings home the point once again, that unless companies have advanced laboratory equipment to analyze it, or expect laboratory results from their suppliers, there is no way you can know if it’s therapeutic grade or not.
This is where we all can be fooled by oils that are labeled "organic" or "100% Pure Oil".
What is the Origin of the Plant Name? Helichrysum comes from a Greek word "helisso" meaning "to turn around" and the word "chryros" meaning "gold".
Why is this Information so Important? Its not, it's just a fun fact!
What Part of the Plant is Used? Flowers
What is the ORAC Value? 1,740 µTE/100g
What Does this Number Mean? ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. It tells you the antioxidant capacity of a food item. Antioxidants have shown to reduce the risk of age related conditions! This was developed by the USDA researchers. For instance: Oranges = 750; Clove = 1,078,700. Wow! The number for clove is NOT a typo!
