Helichrysum Essential Oil


(Helichrysum italicum)

topical aromatic

Helichrysum (Helichrysum italicum) essential oil has a clarifying, stimulating, and grounding fragrance that makes it ideal to diffuse when studying or doing homework. Helichrysum can be applied topically to improve the appearance of tender skin. This oil includes the naturally occurring constituents neryl acetate, gamma-curcumene and alpha-pinene, and is an important ingredient in many essential oil blends including Awaken™, Brain Power™, Deep Relief™ Roll-On, Forgiveness™, PanAway® and Trauma Life™.

Read this excerpt from the Young Living blog dated 02/07/2015 for updates on a new Helichyrsym farm in Croatia!

On the helichrysum partnership in Croatia

“I recently went to Croatia and negotiated on farmland there. We entered into a partnership on the land where we’re already planting helichrysum. We have started growing the world’s first cultivated helichrysum in Croatia!”

Exciting stuff!

Helichrysum is a yellow flower that retains it’s color after picking and is therefore sometimes called immortelle or everlasting.   It is a rare and therefore very expensive oil but one that any serious oiler will want for their collection.   I highly recommend you sign up for Essential Rewards and use your free reward points to buy your bottle.

Wikipedia states that “Helichrysum italicum (synonym Helichrysum angustifolium) ….is popular in fragrance for its unique scent, best described as a mixture of burnt sugar and ham”.  I smell more of an earthy, warm, floral fragrance with hints of honey – it’s a very pleasing aroma!

 How to use: For aromatic or topical use. Diffuse, inhale, or add to bath water. Apply to crown of head, back of neck, behind ears or inside wrists.  
  1. Diffuse: Diffuse for it’s clarifying and grounding fragrance.
  2. Studying: Diffuse while studying, doing homework, or some other mentally rigorous task.
  3. Restoring:  Dilute and apply to skin to improve the appearance of tender skin.*
