Helichrysum- Gymnocephalum is a breath of fresh air. Its soft, eucalyptus-like aroma opens airways, disinfects the air and clears congestion, making it a great pick for overall respiratory health. Combine with other Helichrysums to create a powerful respiratory blend that doubles as a skin-nourishing serum when diluted.
If you’re feeling tired or lethargic, Helichrysum- Gymnocephalum essential oil benefits energy levels and can help boost your day. Try using EG’s Personal Pocket Inhaler and take deep breaths throughout your day.
