There are several essential oils that can help your skin and hair, but perhaps none have the beneficial properties of helichrysum. Helichrysum works by stimulating blood flow and opening capillaries. Areas of the body with strong circulation will repair damage and restore natural beauty faster compared to untreated areas. Helichrysum has also been demonstrated to encourage cell growth and repair damage due to antioxidant properties. These reasons and more make helichrysum essential oil a terrific oil for lotions, shampoos, soaps, and use for topical irritations. This is the perfect oil for after-sun applications.
Any homemade lotions or soaps with helichrysum can help erase years off your skin while also leaving you with fresh, fruity scent tones and an earthly aroma that makes you think of summer smell. If you’re looking for a powerful addition to your skin-care collection, it’s difficult to think of a better oil than helichrysum.
