Helichrysum Hydrosol

Helichrysum Hydrosol smells much more like a diluted version of its corresponding essential oil than a number of other hydrosols. It is somewhat tea-like, earthy and herbaceous. Some absolutely love the aroma and some find that it's an acquired "taste," so to speak.

Botanical Name

Helichrysum italicum

Aromatic Strength

Medium

Shelf Life

Up to 2 years if stored properly (refrigeration is recommended).

Reported Properties, Uses and Applications

Suzanne Catty reports that Helichrysum Hydrosol is a strong anti-inflammatory, anti-hematoma and cicatrisant and offers some analgesic action. Much like its essential oil counterpart, it is indispensable for use with bumps, and bruises. Catty recommends Helichrysum Hydrosol for use in healing wounds and for surgical aftercare including in treating needle wounds and detoxifying the liver after anesthesia. [Suzanne Catty, Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy (Rochester, VT: Healing Arts Press, 2001), 96-97.]

Len and Shirley Price report that the Helichrysum Hydrosol that they analyzed consists of 38-41% ketones, 19-20% alcohols, 14-16% eucalyptol (these ranges do not include the water present in the hydrosol) and possesses the following properties: "analgesic, anticoagulant, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, calming, cicatrizant, digestive, expectorant, lipolytic, mucolytic, sedative, stimulant." [Len Price and Shirley Price, Understanding Hydrolats: The Specific Hydrosols for Aromatherapy: A Guide for Health Professionals (London: Churchill Livingstone, 2004), 114.]

Jeanne Rose adds that Helichrysum Hydrosol is helpful in reducing scarring when used on fresh wounds, and helps to soothe the heart. [Jeanne Rose, 375 Essential Oils and Hydrosols (Berkeley, CA: Frog, Ltd, 1999), 173.]
