Helichrysum Essential Oil
Helichrysum Essential Oil is considered to be one of the most important essential oils for skincare applications. It is particularly prized for the benefits it conveys to those with mature skin.
This means Helichrysum Essential Oil is one of the most valuable ingredients at the disposal of the skincare industry. Inevitably, it is found in many very high-end facial skincare products.
Historically, Helichrysum earned itself the common name of Immortelle in France, and Everlasting here in the UK. This is because the benefits of Helichrysum Essential Oil have long-since been understood.
Helichrysum Essential Oil Aroma
Helichrysum Essential Oil is as equally well known for it’s emotional benefits as it is for its skincare applications. It possesses a distinctly unique aroma, that is hard to describe. Nonetheless, it is a deeply appealing aroma, very clean, exotic, and somewhat sweet, but not in the least sickly. If anything, it is almost other-worldly… or heavenly, and definitely transporting.
If raindrops had a scent, it’s not hard to imaging they would smell like Helichrysum.
Helichrysum Essential Oil Energetic Benefits
Helichrysum Essential Oil is energetically very much about self-acceptance and the acceptance of others… for who we are rather than we want others and ourselves to be. It is very much imbued with the energy of unconditional love.
This makes it a very empowering aromatherapy oil. Unencumbered by wanting to be what we are not, we liberate ourselves and others from feelings of guilt, unworthiness and doubt.
This, in turn, attunes us more to Universal energies, allowing inspiration to flow more readily and permitting us to live with greater integrity.
Helichrysum Essential Oil is profoundly energetically potent. And, as our emotional traumas are stored within our energetic field, Helichrysum Essential Oil is thought to be one of the three most effective aromatherapy oils for releasing the energy of trauma. The other two are Yarrow Essential Oil and Hyssop Essential Oil.
However, we all respond differently to different aromas, and energetic influences. Two lesser known essential oils are thought to be profoundly beneficial in this regard also: Fragonia Essential Oil and Cistus Essential Oil.
According to Joni Keim Loughran and Ruah Bull, in their book Aromatherapy Anointing Oils, Helichrysum Essential Oil works at a very deep level;
This powerful essential oil grounds us in Divine love and guidance, fostering understanding and compassionate insight.
