Helichrysum - essential oil is one of the best natural remedies for bruising. The italidiones chemical component in helichrysum essential oil has remarkable anti-hematoma properties, meaning it can help to keep blood inside of a blood vessel after injury to a particular area. This is why this particular oil is well known for being an excellent remedy for helping to reduce bruising and can be used topically for them.

Eczema and Psoriasis Relief

Helichrysum is one of the best essential oils for eczema. Some studies indicate that helichrysum may be anti-allergenic and productive in the treatment of asthma, hay fever, and eczema.

To soothe irritating and painful eczema or psoriasis, try mixing a few drops of helichrysum essential oil in a soothing, hypoallergenic base oil like organic coconut oil. Apply this to affected areas up to 3 times a day.

To get relief from asthma, and other health problems that cause congestion in the lung area such as coughs, bronchitis, and hay fever, try putting a few drops in an oil diffuser and placing it two to three meters away from where you are working or resting and inhale normally.

Balance Your Heart Chakra

The term chakra is used to describe the spiritual power in the human body. For example, many ancient belief systems were founded on the fact that humans are spiritual as well as physical as these people lived very close with nature.

Helichrysum essential oil may be useful for the heart chakra, which refers to our place of inner guidance or our soul. The heart chakra is classed as the ‘center of the human energy system’. Some practitioners of aromatherapy suggest that the heart chakra needs to be balanced if you are struggling to express emotions such as love, trust, empathy and kinship

Balancing your heart chakra can be done by placing one drop of helichrysum essential oil directly on your heart chakra, which is the central point in between your breasts on both the male and female anatomy.
