Corsican Helichrysum Italicum Essential Oil has a rich, potent aroma and striking medicinal qualities, although the yellow flowers appear small and understated. The plant grows wild on a small island off the coast of France. Helichrysum is known as one of the most powerful oils for skin health and cell regeneration. It can also be an aid in cases of healing physical and emotional trauma. The aroma of Helichrysum can be compared to curry, as many of its active oils are curcumins, the anti-inflammatories also found in turmeric. Helichrysum Corsica is a sub species of Helichrysum Italicum, and is known for its especially high levels of the compound neryl acetate, which is an anti-spasmodic and contributes to the more richly floral aroma of this oil.
