It has all the therapeutic benefits of the Italicum species Helichrysum. On top of that, the serotinum variety is a powerful tool to access and process deep-rooted emotional issues.
It is a great choice for skin care, leaving the skin moist, soft and smooth, and preventing dehydration and cracking of the skin. It has powerful regenerating qualities and is excellent at reducing hemorrhaging, making it powerful for healing wounds and cuts.
Helichrysum is said to heal bruises quickly as well as fade old scars, prevent new scars, heal acne, eczema, stretch marks and more. To regenerate scars, it is used in an omega 3 rich carrier oil (rose hip or flax seed oil).
As it has expectorant and anti-inflammatory properties, it is also excellent for respiratory issues, such as colds, flus, allergies and bronchitis.
In addition, the serotinum variety is highly suited for emotional healing.

- Heals cuts and scars better than normal drugs (e.g. Neosporin)
Helichrysum has become my family's favourite oil, because of its usefulness. I can't say enough about it, and my wife and I recommend it to everyone. Over the years, it has healed our various cuts and scars like magic. There are manufactured cremes on the market which claim to do the same thing, but with Helichrysum, there's no reason for us to look elsewhere.
Price Value Quality
Most recently, I accidentally sliced off part of my fingertip with a carpet knife. It was just the skin (not to the bone, no veins etc.), but it wasn't a pleasant experience. I applied Helichrysum to it 2-3 times each day, and the substantial piece of missing skin grew back quickly and fully, with NO SCAR.
Remember when you were a kid, and you healed quickly? Helichrysum lets you heal like that again.
