Helichrysum- Young Living

🧡  FUN FACTS 🧡

Helichrysum is known as Immortelle, or the Everlasting Flower, possibly because of the way its essential oil can smooth the appearance of fine lines and uneven skin tone.  Its name,  “helichrysum” comes from Latin and Greek roots, meaning “gold spiral” due to its beautiful, golden blossoms. Historically,  it has been used for many different ailments for centuries, especially in Eastern, Western, and Southern African culture. Different tribes in Africa have used helichrysum mostly for countless medicinal purposes. Today, you can find this amazing, healing oil in some of Young Living’s most popular blends, such as Deep Relief, PanAway, M-Grain, Forgiveness…

Helichrysum is typically harvested wild from the rocky shores of Croatia’s Dalmatia region, but Young Living’s helichrysum is cultivated at our farm in Split, Croatia. By cultivating this rare plant, Young Living is helping to protect it from exploitation and over-harvesting. In using our Helichrysum essential oil, you’re helping support sustainable agriculture.

🧡 WHAT IT DOES🧡

An antioxidant, helichrysum is cleansing to the blood, helpful in detoxification, this oil supports the liver cells, gallbladder, lymph system and pancreas. But its benefits are not limited to these organs, helichrysum is incredible for the skin, the muscles and joints, tissue repair, encourages bruises to heal, supports the circulatory system, promotes good hearing, supports the lower back, and is a must-have oil for your first aid kit. Overall, it is amazing at helping the body (in any location) maintain a healthy inflammatory level. It is also a great pool to naturally protect the skin from the sun!

Emotionally, helichrysum is uplifting to the subconscious and helps people cut through the barrier of anger, allowing one to move towards forgiveness and ultimately emotional freedom. Helichrysum has a very high frequency, on the emotional/ spiritual level at 181 MHz

The limestone cliffs of Oman’s Dhofar Mountains provide the perfect environment for the frankincense tree to grow, and Young Living is the first and only company in the world to obtain permission to distill and export Omani Sacred Frankincense oil and bring it into the Western world. The Boswellia sacra trees in this region carry a rich history, having been harvested for the past 5,000 years. Today, their resin is harvested by the same method and on the same schedule as their ancestors, so they continue this centuries-old story.

Keep the Pain Away

sleep deskI will never forget that moment. I was sitting in English Lit, my senior year of high school. The teacher was droning on and on, something about Virginia Woolf. All I could think about was my overwhelming desire to lie, face down on the floor and relieve the pain in my back. Shortly after class, my legs simply gave out. I’m sure it was quite a sight as I collapsed against my locker just as the bell rang for fifth period. My heroic boyfriend wrapped me in his letter jacket, carried me to his car and drove me home. I think he even brought me flowers, because, apparently, he thought I was dying. I couldn’t walk for three days. After endless hours of laying on a heating pad, I was suddenly right as rain.

It was as if nothing had ever happened.

hay baleUntil it happened again.

And then… again.

Granted, I wasn’t exactly responsible with my teenage body. What teenager is? Besides eating junk food, staying up late and drinking copious amounts of beer (underage,) I spent a lot of time riding horses and working hard in the barn. I remember my father chastising me not to lift the massive hay bales over my head, Much stallsor shovel such heavy loads of manure. “Bend at your knees, not at the waist!” he would say. But I was young and strong. What did I care if my back would plague me when I was old? That was then. THIS is now. Like all teenagers I was invincible. And I never though I would age…

Now I have aged… relatively speaking.

And my back flares up just like it did when I was sixteen. Only now there’s no one to carry me home and put me to bed. No one to call in sick for me. No one to homeschool my kids for me. Or drive them to basketball. Or make dinner. Or do the laundry… you get the picture. It isn’t pretty.

I distinctly remember the day when I realized something in my life had to change. I was plowing through Ibuprofen like it was candy. Motrin and Advil had become my daily vitamins. Sometimes it was morning pain. Sometimes it was before bed. But it was some time every day. And I hadn’t even turned forty yet.

God is good like that. He allows us to come to our own realizations first, and then He steps in with the answers we need. Usually, those answers were there all along, we just hadn’t figured out that there was a problem.hospital bed

First, a college friend of mine called me to catch up. She told me about her dad, in the hospital with kidney failure. The best the doctors could tell, he had taken too much ibuprofen over the span of his life. That scared me. A lot.

 

wheat foodThen another friend (a doctor) shared with me some research she had done with regards to gluten being a trigger for inflammation. I didn’t need to hear anything more.

I went home and tossed all our bread, pasta, bagels, Thomas’ English Muffins… clearly I was desperate!

Over the next few months, I noticed I didn’t need my daily dose of Vitamin M (Motrin). The inflammation has significantly subsided. Not only that, but my energy was restored and my foggy head was cleared. I had no idea wheat had become such a personal toxin. Eventually, I hardly needed anti-inflammatories at all. At least not for those day-to-day aches and pains. It was almost miraculous how much better I felt. Younger. Stronger.

gardening_back_painBut I still have flare ups. When I spend too many hours bent over, gardening. Sometimes it’s after vigorously washing the car (ok, so that’s rare) Once, my back went out after an evening in high heels!!! OK, that’s pretty sad.

And there I would be, popping meds for pain, picturing my friend’s dad in his hospital bed.

Panaway bottleThen I was introduced to Pan Away through my Young Living Premier Kit. It comes in a funny looking bottle- with a child-proof cap, like from the pharmacy. When my lower back flared needed support, instead of reaching for a pill bottle, I massaged a few drops of PanAway onto my lower spine with my fingertips, “just to see what it would do,” if anything.

Keep in mind, I was completely skeptical. After all, how could this spicy mixture of peppermint, clove, helichrysum and wintergreen actually bring support?

No less than five minutes later, I understood the power of essential oils. Not only was my back comfortable, it felt GREAT! I felt, somehow, refreshed! Strengthened!

eodr1What IS this magical potion, anyways???

To satisfy my curiosity, I took the plunge and ordered “Big Blue,” my Essential Oils Desk Reference. And I started reading everything I could get my hands on about the power of plants for healing. Here’s a snippet of what I’ve learned:

PanAway works wonders for joint support because of the special properties of it’s four ingredients

Helichrysum italicum-277x277

Helichrysum – has been researched in Europe as aid in promoting tissue and nerve regeneration, as well as providing circulatory support. It has been used in France for many things, particularly and spine support. Helichrysum is well known for its restorative qualities that ease every day wear and tear on the body

WintergreenWintergreen/ Birch – has a soothing activity that is beneficial for bone, joint and muscle support. It is known for its properties associates with muscle, bone and joint wellness.

CLoveClove – is a powerhouse of oils that has been used for thousands of years in countless indigenous cultures to treat a wide variety of issues.  Overall, clove is very stimulating, has a strong therapeutic effect helps influence healing.

PeppermintPeppermint – has powerful soothing properties because of it’s main constituent, menthol. It has a tremendous soothing and cooling effect. For centuries, peppermint has been used to aid digestive comfort, and now they are discovering its value in promoting comfort throughout the body- muscles, joints, skin, bones… A 1994 study in Germany found that peppermint oil exerts significant therapeutic effects on patients.

pain erase2

In this unique blend, the individual oils work in unity with each other to not merely ease discomfort, but to stimulate healing. I’ve personally discovered that PanAway not only offers immediate comfort, it helps promote a continuing comfort level into the future. No man-made pharmaceutical has that kind of power. Period. Standard over-the-counter drugs may dull the discomfort, but they certainly have ZERO healing powers! I was taking over-the-counter meds as a daily regimen, with no end in sight. In stark contrast, the more I’ve used PanAway, the less often I’ve needed it. In fact, after six months of relatively infrequent use, I almost NEVER need joint support!!!

Someday, I honestly think I won’t need PanAway at all. I am absolutely blown away and in awe of the HEALING power of essentials oils.

Aptly named, PanAway truly, TRULY keeps the pan away.
