Helichrysum Bracteiferum Oil
Our organically crafted helichrysum bracteiferum essential oil is steam distilled from the yellow flowers of a particular variety of helichrysum plant growing wild in Madagascar. We love using this kind of helichrysum essential oil to help support healthy lung function, especially relating to allergies and congestion from a cold or the flu.
Benefits and uses
The yellow flowering tops of the Helichrysum bracteiferum plant create a fresh, herbaceous, camphor-like essential oil. Along with helping promote healthy lung function, helichrysum bracteiferum essential oil is so helpful when looking to purify from unwanted microbial activity, manage pain and inflammation, and boost the immune system. This essential oil is used less in wound care, although it can be helpful when looking to reduce inflammation for an area surrounding a wound. Early research shows that when helichrysum bracteiferum is combined with helichrysum odoratissimum, the synergy of the oils together can be immensely helpful with more complex diseases effecting the immune system. You would want to work with a certified Aromatherapist to create a safe, effective protocol if wanting to address one of these more complex illnesses, as experience in this area is certainly needed. Helichrysum bracteiferum is one of the more effective oils when looking for relief from seasonal or situational allergies.
Emotionally and energetically, this essential oil heals and balances. We often use it when looking to support healing of current emotional trauma or when wanting to mend older emotional wounds.
