along with Antispasmodic.
I apply it every 20 minutes when my headache is
severe. In a carrier oil, I apply it on the base
of my neck, away from my eyes, on my temples. It
works, here's why:
The hypotensive action of helichrysum
improves the condition of blood vessels by
lowering inflammation, increasing smooth
muscle function and lowering high blood
pressure, according to a 2008 study done by
the School of Medical Sciences at the
University of Durban. The observed
cardiovascular effects of using helichrysum
oil support the basis for its use in the
management of high blood pressure and the
protection of heart health just like its
been traditionally used for many years in
European folkloric medicine.
- Known to be an antispasmodic, blood purifier
and anti-inflammatory, helichrysum
has been used as a liver stimulant and
detoxifier for centuries. Its commonly used
in folk medicine to treat liver disease and to
help the body detoxify from toxins, heavy
metals, bacteria and air pollution.

is perfect for gently removing dirt, grime, and
