Introducing Helichrysum- Gymnocephalum Essential Oil

Imagine walking through the snow as the cold air invigorates your lungs. Your senses are clear and focused due to the brisk weather. To EG, Helichrysum gymnocephalum is that breath of fresh air on a snowy day. Its high 1,8 cineole content gives this oil a cool, medicinal quality. Helichrysum gymnocephalum can be used to support the respiratory system, and when paired with Helichrysum italicum, it may soothe symptoms of allergies such as sneezing. Native to Madagascar, this oil has also been used for its benefit as an antiseptic when diluted. Helichrysum gymnocephalum may be a good EO to alternate between Eucalyptus, as it shares a similar aroma and therapeutic properties. These are just a few out of many reasons to love our newest addition to the Helichrysum family.


Add 1 drop each of Helichrysum gymnocephalum and Helichrysum italicum to a bowl of hot water. Close your eyes, place your face over the bowl and cover your head and the bowl with a towel to keep the steam in. Stay in place for five minutes, or as long as you can stand it. Alternatively, add 10 drops Helichrysum gymnocephalum and 5 drops Helichrysum italicum to a personal inhaler and use throughout the day.
