Are the signs of age showing on your skin? Essential oils can help, and particularly helichrysum. Frequently used by the ancient Greeks, helichrysum offers a number of health benefits and was once called the ?Immortal Flower.?
For instance, the oil possesses natural skin supportive properties that help reduce the signs of blemishes, scarring, and skin aging. In fact, the oil is a detoxifying agent, helping to strengthen liver function, which affects everything from skin health to brain health. Helichrysum enhances blood flow and is especially supportive of localized circulation. The oil’s strong detoxifying properties, along with its natural ability to support the skin and relieve tension, make it one powerful agent to have on hand in any number of scenarios.
To cleanse and purify the body, add 1-2 drops helichrysum to every glass of drinking water and ingest regularly.
For skin health, put 1-2 drops over the area of concern, whether wrinkles, blemishes, or scars. You can also use helichrysum to calm stress and tension by diluting the oil for a massage. Apply to the back of the neck, the shoulders, the temples, and the soles of the feet.
General Methods of Application

Those with sensitive skin should dilute the oil with a carrier oil. Avoid touching the eyes, ears, and other sensitive areas with the oil. People who are nursing, pregnant, or are receiving medical attention should consult their physician before use. Additionally, make sure to store the oil away from children.
