Usage tips

Mix 4 drops with 1 teaspoon (5ml) of carrier oil, and massage into the affected area. Helichrysum oil helps to relieve pain and swelling, because of its anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties.

Athlete's foot
This oil can help destroy and hinder the spread of the fungal bacteria which causes athlete's foot. Mix 3 drops with 1 teaspoon (5ml) of coconut oil, and massage into the feet and toes. It's important to clean your feet before applying the oil.

Mix 2 drops with 1/2 teaspoon (2,5ml) of carrier oil, and gently massage over the bruise twice daily. Helichrysum helps to speed up the healing of bruises.

Cold sores
Its antiviral properties help to kill the viral infection and speed up the healing process. Mix 1 drop of helichrysum oil with 1 drop of coconut oil, and apply to the cold sore directly using a cotton bud.

Mix 3 drops with 1 teaspoon (5ml) of carrier oil, and massage on the chest area. You can also add 2 drops to a steam inhalation and inhale deeply for 2-3 minutes. Repeat 2 times a day. Helichrysum oil helps to clear excess mucus from the respiratory tract and provides relief from coughing.

Helichrysum has diuretic properties and therefore helps to cleanse the liver because it promotes increased urination. This speeds up the elimination of wastes and toxins from the blood. Mix 4 drops in 1 teaspoon (5ml) of carrier oil, and add to a warm bath with Epsom salt. If you do not have a bath, you can mix 3 drops with 1 teaspoon of carrier oil, and massage into the feet, or the upper left abdominal region.

Mix 4 drops with 1 teaspoon (5ml) of carrier oil, and massage into the abdomen in a clockwise direction. Helichrysum helps to neutralize stomach acids that cause heartburn and promotes the secretion of bile in the stomach.

Mature skin
Helichrysum helps to rejuvenate older skin by promoting the removal of dead skin cells and stimulating the production of new cells. Mix 4 drops of the oil with 1 teaspoon (5ml) of coconut oil, and massage onto your face and neck. You can also add 2 drops to your day or night cream each day. Repeat daily.

Mix 4 drops of the oil with 1 teaspoon (5ml) of coconut oil, and massage onto your face and neck. This will diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Use it regularly and it will help to delay the formation of wrinkles.

A little history

Does Immortelle make you immortal? Unfortunately everyone knows the answer well... however, the radiant beauty of this yellow helichrysum flower, so durable, has earned it the name of immortelle but also of helios (sun) and chrysis (gold). Symbol of love, it was used to make the crowns of Apollo and then those of young brides. Used for a long time on the battlefields, today this oil is present in many aromatherapy treatments .




In my journey to learn about Essential Oils and Aromatherapy over the years, I deep dive into books and courses. I love to educate myself and below you can see some of the books I have used as resources when writing my content. I have tried a lot of different recipes and have been inspired to make some of my own as well. Some of the recipes are from the books. There are so many brilliant authors, and I feel honored to share such great wisdom and knowledge so that we all can live more in harmony with Mother Nature. So share and include this knowledge in your care for yourself and your family and friends. Love Susann
