Natural Candida Cure: The special compounds in helichrysum oil — called acetophenones, phloroglucinols, and terpenoids — appear to demonstrate antifungal actions against Candida growth in clinical studies. Helichrysum also helps soothe the digestive tract, battle inflammation within the gut lining, boost immunity, and speed up the process of recovering from the Candida virus. (*Note: My daughter had this really bad when she was in diapers and has since recovered from this really bad yeast infection, I just wish I knew about this essential oil much sooner.)
Antiviral That Increases Immunity: Since a large portion of the immune system is actually located within the gut, the gut-healing and anti-inflammatory properties of helichrysum help it effectively boosts immunity. In clinical studies, the flavonoids and phloroglucinols of helichrysum oil showed inhibition of harmful bacteria, fungi and viruses, even powerful enough to help decrease the risk of contracting the HIV virus.
Pain Reliever: Research also indicates that helichrysum oil decreases muscle pain by lowering swelling, inflammation and improving circulation. This helps support the healing of nerves, joints and muscle tissue — making it an effective natural treatment for pain-related symptoms of arthritis, fibromyalgia, and exercise-related injuries. You can use it along with lavender oil, which is also excellent to reduce pain and emotional stress.(Note: This is not a cure-all or a means to not seek medical treatment.)
