Interesting Facts About
Therapeutic Grade Helichrysum Essential Oil
Helichrysum has been studied for aiding in regenerating tissues, improving nerves and circulation, and improving skin conditions by European researchers. Traditionally, it was used to minimize varicose veins and bruising, as well as to relieve muscle tension and support circulatory health. It also supports the liver and nervous systems.
Pure helichrysum essential oil is scored at an amazing 17,430 on the ORAC antioxidant scale. Due to this high score and its great defense against many free radicals, helichrysum is a vital ingredient in several Young Living Essential Oil blends.
This amazing oil comes from Helichrysum flowers that are usually called Immortelle or Everlasting. Even though the reference to “long life” may only be because of the flowers ability not to lose beauty or color when dried, it may also be because of the amazing properties of the oil the flowers can be made into.
