Helichrysum hydrosol has a strongly bitter flavour and a unique herbaceous aroma. It is useful as sedative, relieves itching and is anti-inflammatory, digestive, antimicrobial and a mild analgesic.
Helichrysum hydrosol is wonderful for cuts, wounds, bruising and pain. It is great for skin care, helping to heal most skin conditions. When using for wound healing, it is recommend using the hydrosol around the wound until the stitches come out and then spraying on the incision site. This will allow the wound to heal from the inside out. It is excellent as a spray combined with German Chamomile for skin inflammation, damaged skin, sun burn or rashes.
- Use undiluted on a compress for bruises, sore muscles, rashes and insect bites by applying a cold compress dampened with the hydrosol directly on the affected area. Apply several times a day.
- Great for after sports workout.
- Use in a lotion or spray a mist directly on skin to soothe skin irritated such as rosacea.
