really great for skincare
I really like this mixed with RM Rose Essential oil in Rosehip Seed Oil base as a moisturizer every night and on days when I don't plan to wear makeup.

I'm almost 50 and need the moisture plus i have pretty sensitive skin that is prone to unevenness. This works to keep my face moist and to reduce the redness and plump up my smile lines all without causing congestion.

I use 6 drops of Rose and 6 drops of Helichrysum Italicum in 1 fluid oz of Rosehip Seed Oil.

It only takes a few drops. I know it sounds expensive because buying the bottles of oil is a lot up front. But when diluted generously (2% EO to 98% carrier) it is pennies on the dollar compared to premium skincare. More importantly: it works. Really well.

I only mix 1oz at a time because the Rosehip Seed Oil is only good for a few months once opened. The 1oz lasts me about 3 months and I have plenty more essential oil to make a new batch.

Best overall oil
This is claimed to be the best overall oil. I don’t care for the smell (it kind of reminds me of sweaty socks, but it’s really not that bad). We don’t use most oils the the scent, do we?
It is one oil that I always carry on trips, no matter what.
Helichrysum is Very strong, so use with caution. RMO has wonderfully potent oils and I have been using them for many years.

What is the difference in the two helichrysums?
patti on Sep 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Helichrysum is well known for its healing properties and we offer two varieties: Helichrysum gymnocephalum and Helichrysum italicum.

Helichrysum gymnocephalum is commonly used for pain, bruising, and inflammation; however, it is not as effective on open wounds. High content of 1,8 cineole,helps provide support to the healthy function of the respiratory system. Not to be used on children under 10 years old.

Helichrysum italicum forms part of our pain and skin collection. 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. This oil is beloved by our customers for injuries and quicker healing.

Can I ingest the helichrysum italicum or use it in tea?
Maria B on Aug 29, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Rocky Mountain Oils feels that essential oils are very potent and can be dangerous if not used correctly. All of our oils are 100% pure, natural, and authentic. They are of the quality to ingest. However, we cannot provide dosing suggestions or directions on how to ingest if you choose to do so. If you do choose to ingest the oils, we suggest consulting an Aromatherapist or trusted health professional for guidance. This goes for the Helichrysum italicu also.

Thank you!
