February 2011
When you heat your house with a woodstove like we do…now-and-then you’re going to bang your hand or fingers or get burned. I’m not talking about serious injuries, but those inevitable small bumps and bruises that happen to all of us.

I was making a fire on a cold February evening this spring. Pulled my hand back out of our wood stove hitting my knuckle pretty darn hard against it. OUCH! It hurt. Noticed a bruise starting to form.

Our cat, Jaeci (a furry heat-seeking missile) loves to hang out by the woodstove. The hotter the better as far as she is concerned.

Helichrysum is THE Go-To Therapeutic Essential Oil for Bruises

…excess bleeding, and shock. A versatile, therapeutic essential oil, Helichrysum’s compounds may either increase or stop bleeding, depending on what the body’s immune systeme needs to heal. A strong anti-inflammatory, Helichrysum’s known to stimulate cell regeneration and repair nerves, plus it has an emotionally calming effect. Helichrysum is also non-toxic, non-irritating, and non-sensitizing. An expensive, but WONDERFUL essential oil for your first aid emergency kit (even if I don’t like how it smells!). And well worth the investment. A little goes a long way.

I didn’t take a photo of my bruise. It was on my right hand (I’m right-handed) plus it happened late at night, just before I went to sleep. I wasn’t going to ask my hubby to wake up to take a photo! The image of this young woman’s bruise looks a lot like the one I had.

I put 1 drop of Helichrysum essential oil on my bruised, slightly tender, knuckle and went to sleep.

Bruises happen to all of us. Helichrysum therapeutic-quality essential oil will heal bruises quickly!

After I had been up awhile, remembered to check my knuckle. NO bruise! Not a trace of tenderness or even redness!! I couldn’t quite believe my eyes, so went over to the window to take a closer  look. Nope, not a trace, hint, shadow of a bruise. And absolutely, NO tenderness…like I hadn’t even hurt myself at all. Impressive? You betcha!

Wondered if my experience was unique? Did a bit of internet research on Helichrysum essential oil’s healing properties. Another aromatherapist commented on her site: “My personal experience is that it can fade bruises almost overnight, turning an angry new bruise to one that looks like a week old almost healed bruise while I slept. It acts by having the blood reabsorbed into the tissue, thus removing the discoloration and the pain caused by pressure on the nerves.”

always buy the best essential oilsI highly recommend you consider purchasing the best Helichrysum you can afford and add it to your home, sports, and camping First Aid Kits. One of these days, you or someone you know may benefit from Helichyrsum’s healing power.
