Try Halichrysum oil

One of the most ancient and sacred of the oils is helichrysum. Helichrysum is from a Mediterranean plant, whose highest quality maybe found only mostly in the Corsican island of France, Spain and Italy, even though other varieties maybe found almost anywhere in the world. Its botanical name is Helichrysum Angustifiola, more popularly known as Immortelle, Italian Everlasting or St. John's herb. The Helichrysum, pale to golden yellow to almost reddish in color, is known as the most powerful essential oil in terms of its healing and regenerative properties. Its scent is a combination of being strongly fresh, fruity, with both honey and tea undertone.

Aromatherapy has been widely popular these last few years due to its benefit in both physical and spiritual healing of the body. The choices of different essential oils for aromatherapy had been dictated by the desired effects its users want from them. Helichrysum oil has become almost as popular as lavender and tee tree essential oils because it provides restorative properties for both the skin and the soul as well.

Since the ancient times, Helichrysum essential oil has been used by the Europeans for tissue repair and healing. Since it has both anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, as well as antiseptic, Helichrysum is best for skin problems like acne, burns, allergies, stretch marks, wounds and even old scars and keloids. Helichrysum is known also as an effective free-radical scavenger, great for the skin problems and diseases.

Aromatherapy, first and foremost, touches the soul and heart of the person. This is most especially true to an oil that heals both the body and the soul of the person. Its earthy and herbaceous scent makes Helichrysum oil known to heal not only new and old skin scars, but scars of the heart and soul as well.

When you're broken spiritually or hurt in love or betrayed by the only person you love or just simply tired, an aromatherapy with a massage with Helichrysum essential oil is in order. It has calming and antispasmodic properties can be good in treating depression, nervous exhaustion, and other stress related problems.

Helichrysum's anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties are perfect for reducing pain and speed up healing of the both physical and spiritual injuries. Unlike other essential oils that may be contraindicated for some people, it has been found to be relatively safe. And because when used in aromatherapy, helichrysum provides a warm and relaxing atmosphere, it is also great in reducing hypertension.
