Last week I read a report on the amazing skin healing properties of Helichrysum italicum and so I put it to the test on my dad who is 84 and has had an undiagnosed skin condition on his lower back which comes and goes, but never completely heals up. So I prepared a 2% blend with some of the amazing Immortelle essential oil in the NYR base lotion, and added a bit of lemongrass just in case there was anything fungal going on too and gave it to him to apply 3 times a day. Within a week his skin has almost completely healed and needless to say he is very happy and I have lots of daughter brownie points 😉
I also gave him some Omega 3-6-9 blend to take to boost his essential fatty acid intake and further improve his skin health. He noticed the difference in his skin within a week.
I have a friend who has this week had a small surgical procedure on her face and wanted something to aid healing and minimise scarring, so I’ve blended rose hip oil with Immortelle and await the results of this with interest.

However, please take care to follow the safety advice for use of essential oils – they are very concentrated, powerful substances and misuse can cause skin sensitivities and possible allergic reactions. Some are contraindicated for use with certain health conditions – use without advice at your own risk!
