If your helichrysum is certified as a food additive and can be taken as a dietary supplement it may support healthy liver and immune function. Helichrysum is a detoxifier, so you should consult with a holistic practitioner before doing any serious liver or organ cleanse. If toxins are released too quickly or at a time before other important organs are cleansed the result could be quite unpleasant, possibly harmful.
Helichrysum has been researched and found to be a powerful antioxidant, even effective against Staphyloccocus aureus bacteria.
Helichrysum is a rare and expensive oil It takes a lot of plant material to make the essential oil:
1 ton of helichrysum italicum flowers makes only 52 oz of essential oil, that’s not even a 1/2 gallon!
It is a highly sought after essential oil because of it’s benefits and since the supply is limited, the price continues to increase. If you’re not ready to invest in a single bottle of Helichrysum, you can still get the benefits of Helichrysum when you use a blend that contains it.
If you want to make sure you have a pure, food grade Helichrysum essential oil that is not diluted, find a company that grows, distills and bottles their essential oils to ensure product purity. Price is a good indicator of quality and in the industry of essential oils, something too good to be true probably is not. If an oil bottle is much cheaper than comparable brands, it may pay to research and find a company that ensures the highest standards of purity.
