Helichrysum is an evergreen aromatic herb growing up to 60 cm (24 in) and ranks as one of most ancient & valuable healing substances along with Frankincense, Myrrh, Spikenard, and Rose capable of healing physical and emotional scarring. Angelic uses are to open the heart, connect body to spirit and opening human beings to spiritual life. The oil is often added to blends for diseases where there is an emotional cause especially addictions and heart disease with its use during counseling to bring to the conscious surface repressed or subconscious feelings that propagate denial. Co-incidentally or I prefer ‘Heavenly Orchestrated Synchronicity’ the oil assists detoxification from alcohol, drugs and nicotine, while releasing the body and mind from addictive patterns. Helichrysum opens the flow of subtle heart energies while its anti-inflammatory and tissue regenerating properties also help repair swollen or weak veins. Blends diffused or rubbed on the heart area help emotional release and physical clarity. Helichrysum essential oil may evoke powerful emotions in some individuals – please start with small amounts while observing reaction and always use in moderation.

How does DMSO relate to Helichrysum? In several cases of deafness from birth the use of Helichrysum was seen to regenerate nerves in the ears!!! Deafness caused by nerves not connecting has been cured with helichrysum.
This means Helichrysum is a candidate to cure spinal cord injuries and other conditions involving nerve damage.
If the nerve damage is degenerative, rather than caused by accident or trauma, heavy metals may be involved in the degeneration. This is an entirely different matter which would involve chelation or oral chelation.
