The anti-inflammatory action of Helichrysum makes it unbelievably effective for dissipating bruises, reducing swelling and healing damaged tissue. If you use Helichrysum in a situation like this, you will be amazed, the results are a true testament to flower power!

Helichrysum is extremely effective for reducing puffiness and swelling around the eyes.

Keep your gel in the fridge and carefully apply it around the eye area (*avoiding contact with eyes*) in the morning.

Skin Rejuvenation 

Traditionally called 'Immortelle' for it's skin rejuvenating properties, Helichrysum is a must-have ingredient in any anti-aging skincare regime. It will reduce the look of fine lines and fight against premature aging of the skin. Helichrysum will also assist with hyper-pigmentation, scarring, burns, eczema, rosacea, broken veins, varicose veins, allergic reaction, stretch marks and any oxidative skin damage. Use this DIY Skin Healing Gel in any of these situations.

(If the condition is inflammatory, 5 drops of Blue Tansy will bump up the calming action). We use Helichrysum eo along with other healing botanicals in our Healing Salve and in our Recovery Gel.
