Helichrysum oil is a member of the Asteraceae family. This oil has a powerful scent that can be described as rich and honey-sweet. It is both woody and fresh. It is classed as a base note and blends well with camphoraceous, citrus, earthy, floral, herby, minty, spicy and woodsy oils.
Helichrysum may promote blood circulation and decrease inflammation that causes pain like arthritis. Effective in skincare, this oil has anti-viral benefits for problem skin, which can relieve dry, itchy skin by soothing and nourishing.
Essential oils can be applied topically once diluted with a carrier oil. They are widely used in cosmetic goods and handmade crafts.
