Aromatherapy : The word was originally used by French chemist Rene-Maurice Gattefosse in 1920.In a laboratory accident, Gattefosse set his arm on fire and immediately thrust it into the nearest vat of cold liquid, which happened to be lavender oil. Instantly, he felt soothing relief and watched as the burn continued to heal quickly, with no inflammation or scarring. The profound healing benefits led him to a lifetime of research in a field that he termed “aromatherapy.”

In fact it still has hidden qualities not yet discovered with research still being carried out to understand the full implications that this plant can have on the human body and especially on skin. I’ve opted modestly here for a step by step guide if you like and I’m trying to cover all aspects of this essential oil and how to explain the why, the where and the what for questions that I myself ask. In any case this has lead me on a journey in essential oils and has helped me to understand why this golden liquid is so precious.

USDA researchers at Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts, have developed a laboratory test to measure the oxygen radical absorption capacity of different foods and natural substances. Known as the ORAC scale, it is one of the most sensitive and reliable methods for measuring antioxidant capacity. Scoring an amazing 1,743 µTE/100 g on this ORAC scale, helichrysum provides a defense against harmful free radicals. It has all also the therapeutic benefits of the Italicum species and is highly suited for emotional healing. It can help access forgotten memories and is therefore a valuable tool for processing emotional injuries.
