Helichrysum is a self-seeding plant in the sunflower family. It grows native in rocky and sandy terrains throughout the Mediterranean. If you love Helichrysum oil, you should probably book a Mediterranean vacation to go see it for yourself ASAP. Just saying.
Some herbalists say helichrysum essential oil can be a key ingredient in a “holistic first aid kit,” because they believe the oil is a useful treatment for:
- ear infections
- inflammation of the kidneys
