Joint-Ease Balm

Warm the shea butter in a double-boiler over low heat, until it has just melted. Remove from heat. Add Evening Primrose Oil and essential oils directly to your storage container, then slowly pour in the liquefied shea butter. Cap and label the container and set aside until the balm has thickened. Takes approximately 24 hours.

Use formula judiciously. Massage a pea sized amount into affected area to relieve stiffness.

Facial Exfoliation

  • 2 drops Helichrysum gymnocephalum
  • 1 drop Lavender
  • 1 drop Carrot Seed
  • 1 tablespoon Baking Soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Water

In a small bowl, mix all ingredients until a velvety, watery paste forms. Dip the pads of your fingers into the paste and slowly and lightly massage your entire face, throat, and upper chest, using small, circular motions. Do not use much pressure -- let the baking soda granules do the exfoliation work. Continue to dip fingers into the paste as often as needed in order to cover skin with a thin coat. Takes about 10 minutes to complete. Rinse well. Use no more than twice a week. Follow with a moisturizer. Do not use on sunburned, windburned, or irritated skin.

If oxidized, it may cause irritation or sensitization.

Great stuff
Helichyrsum is a great healing oil. My daughter had numerous pimples on her chest and back that nothing helped. I had her try helichrysum and her skin was clear within several days.

RMO always great
I got attacked in the face by a dog. RMO had 2 different types of helichrysum, and I bought the less expensive. While it ended up not working for my face (*helichrysum gymnocephalum is much more minty or menthol-like than its counterpart Italicum) It's wonderful for diffusing for breathing/comfort. I plan to work with it a little bit to use in a toner once the wounds aren't so touchy. Was a pleasant surprise.

A most wonderful essential oil.
The Helichrysum essential oil is wonderful. I use it for my face to assist with break outs and it works magnificently. The smell is great. I also diffuse it to relieve tension, stress and to promote wellness with my Reiki clients. I recommend this product.

Love RMO!
I really like it and would definitely purchase again. Smells similar to eucalyptus and I use it with myrrh in my moisturizer for my face morning and night. Even my kids like it!

What is the difference between the two Helichrysum?
Toots on Aug 25, 2018

Helichrysum gymnocephalum is commonly used for pain, bruising, and inflammation. Helichrysum italicum forms part of our pain and skin collection. High content of 1,8 cineole,helps provide support to the healthy function of the respiratory system. Helichrysum italicum helps promote the skin’s natural healing process while minimizing the appearance of bruises. Its wellness properties may help ease the pain of sore muscles and overused joints.

Which of the two Helichrysum is best for acne scars?
Kim G on Dec 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello! While both have very similar properties, Helicrysum Italicum may help accelerate growth of new tissue. It my be able to help diminish scar formation, promoting healthy functional tissue to regenerate, meaning it may also be used to repair and diminish old scars.
Thanks! - RMO Team
