Helichrysum Essential Oil
Helichrysum oil, also known as ‘Everlasting’ and ‘Immortal’ essential oil, is made from the European flower species H.Angustifolium and H. Italicum. The Helichrysum Italicum plant grows wild in Mediterranean regions at high altitudes with a lot of sun exposure. Helichrysum is also known as Immortelle or Everlasting because the flowering tops retain their yellow color even after they dry out and are often used in dried flower arrangements.
The oil is well known for its restorative properties to the skin, liver and nervous system, it’s known as a fantastic wound healer and its ability to help ear health problems such as hearing loss and tinnitus. Use a drop of Helichrysum on a cotton ball at night and put it in ear. About 2-3x a day apply it around your ear and the back side of your ear.
Massage a few drops of it undiluted, directly to the outside of ears and just inside the bowl (please do not put ANYTHING directly into your ears) and all around the ear at the scalp and a bit down the neck. You cab also massage it into the ear reflexology points of your feet. This is just below the two little toes

Helichrysum is one of the essential oils favored in fine creams that are formulated for mature complexions. At the end of a stressful day, 8 drops may be mixed with a little liquid soap and added to the bath for a relaxing soak. Because this is diluted in Jojoba Oil, it can be used as a simple or blended with other oils to make a purely natural perfume.

A person should test new essential oils on a patch of skin to ensure that they do not cause irritation.
According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), helichrysum essential oil is “generally recognized as safe.” However, people should still use caution when using it on the skin.
Essential oils can irritate the skin, so it is best to mix each one with a carrier oil and do a test patch a day before applying it more generously.
If the test patch shows any signs of irritation, such as itchiness or redness, people must not continue using the mixture.
It is never safe to ingest essential oils. It is also a good idea to keep them out of reach of children and pets.
