Helichrysum (Corsica)

Helichrysum italicum

Description

At Aromatics International we have two Helichrysum essential oil products, also known as Immortelle: one from Croatia and one from Corsica.

In Corsica, a small island off of the coast of southern France, Helichrysum grows wild. It is a small, simple, mustard-colored flower that is subtle and understated. The Helichrysum italicum has a rich curry-like aroma, is potent, and has a quick action. There’s no doubt that our Helichrysum italicum essential oil makes a statement!

Helichrysum essential oil (Corsican Helichrysum italicum) has a strong anti-spasmodic quality and, as a natural analgesic, is one of the best essential oils for pain and muscle spasms. It is also one of the best oils for healing, with impressive wound and injury healing, and cell regenerative properties. Helichrysum italicum is known for its ability to disperse bruises and help reduce scarring. It is especially effective blended with Arnica or Trauma oil as a carrier. It is also used for headaches that stem from liver toxicity. Emotionally, it is known for its support in the case of deep trauma.

Product Q&A
What is the main difference in the four kinds of Helichrysum? thank you!
Two are Helichrysum italicum and the other 4 are totally different. The easiest is to look at each description and GC report.

Best wound healer!
As a clinical aromatherapist I love the Corsica H. italicum for wound healing, scars and those dark purple bruises where there is deep tissue damage. If you can treat yourself, the Corsican Heli is the best, otherwise the Croatian Heli, which has a slightly different chemical profile, is still good to use as an anti-inflammatory and wound healing oil. From my studies in France, I have been using H. bracteiferum and H. odoratissimum for respiratory conditions because of the oxide and monoterpene content, as well as in blends for muscular aches and pains. Have not used H. gymnocephalum or H. splendidum yet, so can't comment from personal use.

Helichyrsum
I didn't title my review with a certain chemotype of Helichrysum as I love them all. I've used them all and I can't decide which one I like better. They all have different purposes and I've seen that in my use of them. If anyone messes with my Helichrysum they are in a lot of trouble. Thanks Karen.
