When it comes to essential oils I find the properties of one can be so different from the next. These tiny bottles of medicine have the capabilities to heal a wide variety of ailments. I am amazed at how much we can benefit from even just one drop of a good quality essential oil. Look at Lavender, it has the ability to calm a screaming child and also relieve sunburned or overheated skin at the same time. The essential oil featured today is probably one of the most versatile essential oils known to man. Tiny flowers produced from an herb are steam distilled into a fruity scented liquid. The aroma when inhaled through the nostrils has the power to immediately reduce feelings of anger, hopelessness, and anxiety. This is fabulous oil for anyone dealing with emotional pain or trauma from past events. As Helichrysum is working on an emotional and psychological level it is also reducing these hot spots on a physical level as well. If one would regularly massage 2 drops of this oil, mixed with a bit of olive oil, onto the abdomen twice daily it would begin to detoxify and heal the liver, the pancreas and the gallbladder. While attacking those heavy metals and sweeping them out of the body as well. This is one seriously healing tool to have in your bathroom or kitchen. Remember to store these oils in a dark and cool place. They do travel well but don’t sacrifice the quality, always be sure to have them covered up and stored away so to avoid waste. Another reason I enjoy using my essential oils in my home is watching my toddler call out for the oils. He gravitates toward the aroma and responds beautifully to the healing properties. Helichrysum is great for children because a small amount can reduce sinus infections, earaches, and even nose bleeds! For earaches you would use a few drops massaged around the ear but never in the ear. The properties of Helichrysum ranging from antibacterial to anti-coagulant make it one versatile healer. Stop in to see us for some healing and request a reflexology treatment with the accompaniment of Helichrysum essential oil. Better yet, ask for your own bottle to share with the family. Just a few drops a day. Such a simple change in your daily routine will greatly improve the body, mind, and soul.
