The following summary is given for information purposes: it is a synthesis of the properties described in recognised aromatherapy books and/or in accordance with ancestral and popular traditions. The properties* presented are taken from the book 'Aromathérapie Corps et Ame' by André Bitsas, published by Amyris. It is in no way a medical information or a list of indications.
We have chosen to share with you exceptional lots that are particularly remarkable in their composition. The climate, the land, the work of the people, all in a formidable combination!
Straight from the Tuscan countryside, new and PREMIUM thanks to an ideal balance between italidiones and neryl acetate, for an optimal action in all its applications.
Botanists present the Asteraceae as one of the most advanced families in the plant kingdom. Their essential oil is a major confirmation! This plant with yellow flowers is found all around the Mediterranean. It is composed of esters, diones (molecules related to ketones), sesquiterpenes, monoterpenols, oxides, etc. The proportion of diones (ideally around 10%) and esters must be significant. Depending on the batches available, we propose either a Corsican origin or - just off the island's eastern coast - an Italian origin, both of which guarantee an optimal balance of constituents.
Property that distinguishes it from all others: Helichrysum essential oil is anticoagulant. It is remarkably effective on haematomas ("bruises"), even old and internal ones. Any treatment of varicose veins and heavy legs includes helichrysum in its composition. The same applies to any treatment of couperose. Because of its high ester content, helichrysum is also antispasmodic.
The aroma is sweet, lively and intense. Helichrysum essential oil has an intense psychological effect, capable of stimulating intuition, imagination and creativity, and inspiring dreams and musings. Comforting and airy, it can be said to soothe the "blues of the soul". Immortal, it is certainly so despite its appearance of fragility.
