Man Found Standing Writes:
Helichrysum: Organically Grown: Croatia (Helichrysum italicum)
Helichrysum italicum is our favorite plant for first aid. Personally, over the last decade, this oil has saved our families over ten thousand dollars in medical bills. This powerful healing oil is amazing. Sadly, because the demand for this oil has grown over the last decade, the price has rapidly increased. When inquiring about our ever-steady increase in price, our farmer said, “I get eight hundred times the oil request than what I can actually make. I only get 5 to 8 kgs of oil per acre depending on the weather.”
Many Helichrysum italicum plants are commonly grown around the world with vast differences in chemistry. Personally, we have found the oils outside of Europe to be ineffective or very low therapeutic quality. Also, many companies try to sell Helichrysum angustifolium, which is really Helichrysum gymnocephalum or some other species, as pure Helichrysum italicum. It is vital to purchase from a trusted source and remember the true therapeutic oil will rapidly assist to heal open wounds. It is amazing to see a week or two worth of healing overnight. The other Helichrysum species do not do this.
