Helichrysum is best known for its restorative properties to the skin. Also referred to as the Everlasting or Immortal Flower, Helichrysum is used in anti-aging products for its rejuvenating benefits to the skin. Helichrysum can help reduce the appearance of blemishes, and it promotes a glowing, youthful complexion.

When we first started using essential oils in our home Helichrysum was one of the first oils I got. When my son got a bloody nose, we would rub a drop across the bridge of his nose. It worked like a charm (but he has only had 2 or 3 in the past 3 years! Reach out to me to find out why).
