100% pure and naturalHelichrysum comes from the Latin name helichrysum which means golden sun referring to its sun yellow flowers. By crowning oneself with the flower of helichrysum, it is said that one obtains popularity and glory. As its flowers never seem to wither even after picking, helichrysum is also called immortelle. This plant is well known for its anti-aging and anti-hematoma properties. In the Greek myth of Homer's Odyssey, Princess Nausicaa having saved Odysseus from the sinking of his ship rubbed the body of Helychris as an elixir of youth. In Madagascar, this plant called rambiazana grows in the Central Highlands of the island.
- Anti-Inflammatory +++ (1,8-cineole (eucalyptol)): 1,8-cineole and sesquiterpenes contained in the essential oil of Helichrysum from Madagascar modulate the body's response to an aggression suffered (inflammation ) and calm the sensations of heat, and the resulting redness. The essential oil of Helichrysum from Madagascar is a versatile anti-inflammatory, acting equally well on the respiratory, muscular, articular or skin level.
- Expectorant, Anticatarrhal ++ (α-pinene, 1,8-cineole (eucalyptol)): alpha pinene regulates the hypersecretion of mucus by the bronchi while 1,8-cineole helps in fluidization and expulsion mucus from the respiratory tract. Together, these molecules make it possible to eliminate respiratory congestion.
- Bactericide ++ (α-pinene, 1,8-cineole (eucalyptol)): 1,8-cineole fights against the development of staphylococci. More specifically, alpha pinene prevents the development of Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli or Klebsiella pneumoniae.
- Antifungal ++ (α-pinene): by contact or atmospheric diffusion, alpha pinene prevents the development of fungi such as Candida albicans and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Beta caryophyllene acts only on Candida albicans.
- Antiviral ++ (α-pinene): the monoterpene and terpenic epoxides of this essential oil constitute a protective barrier against viruses thus making it possible to slow their progression in the body in order to stop it as quickly as possible. Alpha pinene targets in particular the herpes virus.
- Analgesic +: the molecules of this essential oil help reduce pain by inhibiting the secretion of the molecules that are responsible for its transmission.
