Helichrysum is often used to prevent signs of aging and referred to as “The Everlasting Flower” because of its rejuvenating benefits for the skin and ability to improve the complexion.
Helichrysum italicum is a small perennial herb with narrow, silver leaves and flowers that form a cluster of golden yellow, ball-shaped blossoms. The name “Helichrysum” is derived from the Greek “helios” meaning sun and “chrysos” meaning gold, referring to the color of the flowers. Helichrysum has been used in herbal health practices since ancient Greece and the oil is highly valued and sought after for its many health benefits. Helichrysum is best known for its restorative properties to the skin. Also referred to as the Everlasting or Immortal Flower, helichrysum is used in anti-aging products for its rejuvenating benefits to the skin. Helichrysum can help reduce the appearance of blemishes, and it promotes a glowing, youthful complexion.
Some of my favorite uses for helichrysum essential oil:
– Apply topically to reduce the appearance of blemishes
– Apply to the face to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and to promote a glowing, youthful complexion
– Massage into the temples and the back of the neck for a soothing sensation
Helichrysum essential oil blends well with:
– Clary sage essential oil

– Lavender essential oil
Every essential oil has an emotional component. Helichrysum is The Oil For Pain. Helichrysum removes pain quickly and effortlessly. It aids “the walking wounded” – those with difficult life circumstances, trauma, addiction, loss or abuse. These individuals need the powerful spiritual support that helichrysum offers. It gives strength and endurance to the wounded soul who must keep on living, despite past difficulties. This oil restores confidence in life and in the Self, giving the individual strength to “make it.” Helichrysum has a powerful relationship with the light of the sun. It imbues joy, fervor and hope for living. Helichrysum takes the wounded soul by the hand, guiding them through life’s difficulties. If the wounded individual can persevere, this oil can take them into new heights of spiritual consciousness. Helichrysum offers hope that their wounds can be healed. Following this spiritual healing and transformation, helichrysum can teach an individual to have gratitude for their trials. It helps one to see that if they had not been wounded, they would not have sough healing that resulted in a spiritual rebirth. Just as the phoenix dies and is raised from its ashes, so might an individual be raised from their turmoil. Helichrysum sends its warrior spirit so that one may face their adversities with courage and determination. It brings hope to the most discouraged of souls and life to those in need of rebirth.
