Helichrysum Essential Oil is the most powerfully anti-inflammatory essential oil, and an essential component in rosacea and bruise blends.
The gentler Helichrysum Hydrosol is the perfect toner for rosacea, couperose (“thread” veins), and inflamed or irritated skin.
It is a wonderful cool compress for bruises as well. Having seen how wonderful Helichrysum Essential Oil is in healing scars, I’d suggest trying Helichrysum Hydrosol (perhaps blended with Carrot Seed Hydrosol ?) for treating acne scars.
We’ve used it diluted (and sometimes mixed with Tea Tree Hydrosol ) as a mouthwash after oral surgery or tooth extraction. Hydrosol expert Suzanne Catty recommends it as a mouthwash for gingivitis and/or receding gums.
If you often use Helichrysum Essential Oil, then Helichrysum Hydrosol is a must-have.
I’ve heard back from people using Helichrysum Hydrosol and Roman Chamomile Hydrosol together to sooth sunburns, radiation burns, rashes, and skin irritations of all types. One client raves about the combination in keeping eczema manageable. You may read some of their comments on our Helichrysum Healing page. Additionally, Madeleine Kerkhof-Knapp Hayes suggests it may be helpful for dry and itchy skin.
In spite of its cost, Helichrysum Hydrosol has traditionally been our best selling hydrosol, month in, month out. Nothing else that I know of is its match for gentle care for sensitive skin.
Our hydrosols are packaged in PET bottles with atomizer tops for ease of use. Hydrosols are perishable: keep refrigerated. For more information on how they’re made and their uses, click here.
