Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of Helichrysum italicum.
The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities of the aerial part of Helichrysum italicum extracts have been established (Departament de Farmacologia, Facultat de Farmàcia, Universitat de València, Spain
) in various in-vivo and in-vitro experimental models. The results obtained on the acute oedemas induced by 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate (TPA) and ethyl phenylpropiolate in the mouse ear, by serotonin and phospholipase A2 (PLA2) in the mouse paw, on chronic inflammation induced by repeated application of TPA in the mouse ear and on the delayed-type hypersensitivity induced by sheep red blood cells suggest that said anti-inflammatory activity is due to the effects of compounds expressed via a corticoid-like mechanism. In addition, the antioxidant activity of the extracts seems to be implicated in this anti-inflammatory activity, as the former inhibits enzymatic and non-enzymatic lipid peroxidation and has free-radical scavenger properties. We conclude that the anti-inflammatory activity of Helichrysum italicum can be explained by multiple effects, including inflammatory enzyme inhibition, free-radical scavenging activity and corticoid-like effects.

Remedy 1 : Rosacea & Micro blood vessel
 
Composition by order of % content : Cannabis Sativa , Pinus sylvestris , Pelargoneum graveolens , Rosmarinus officinalis , helichrysum italicum

Powerful solution to fight rosacea which is a potentially progressive neurovascular disorder that generally affects the facial skin. The most common symptoms include facial redness and inflammation across the flushing zone – usually the nose, cheeks, chin and forehead ; visibly dilated blood vessels, facial swelling and burning sensations, and inflammatory papules and pustules. The intense action version may also have a beneficial effect on some forms of viteligo.
Remedy 2 :Varicous veins & heavy legs
 
Composition by order of % content : Carthamus tinctorius , Mentha arvensis , Eucalyptus Radiata , Cupressus sempervirens , helichrysum italicum
Weakness of the vein wall allows valves in the superficial veins to stretch so that they do not close as they should. Blood then flows back into the leg along these veins. As the veins enlarge they can be seen on the surface as varicose veins. Raised pressure in these veins encourages the development of spider veins and discoloured areas which look like bruises.

A bruise, also called a contusion, is a type of relatively minor hematoma of tissue in which capillaries and sometimes venules are damaged by trauma, allowing blood to seep into the surrounding interstitial tissues. Bruises can involve capillaries at the level of skin, subcutaneous tissue, muscle, or bone. A bruise may be named by the length of its diameter as an petechia (less than 3 mm), purpura (3 mm to 1 cm) or ecchymosis (1 to 3 cm), although these terms can also refer to internal bleeding not caused by trauma.
Remedy 4 : Aged Skin
 
Composition by order of % content : Prunis Amygdalus, Junniper communis, Myrtus communis, Boswellia Rivae and Helichrysum Italicum .
The skin protein collagen is particularly susceptible to free radical damage, and when this occurs, it causes the collagen protein molecules to break down. Scientists now believe that the free radical theory of disease also applies to the aging of the skin. Free radicals are unstable small molecules generated by an oxygen environment which require stabilization by the body's antioxidant system. Free radicals occur throughout every cell in our body simply by virtue of the fact that oxygen is our principal metabolic fuel. Strong sunlight readily generates free radicals in the skin. Our hands, face, neck, and arms are the areas usually chronically exposed to light. These parts of the body, particularly the face, are where aging of the skin shows up.

How does Helichrysum Oil Reduce Stretch Marks?
Helichrysum essential oil has this special quality as it is able to regenerate skin by stimulating cell turnover. Hence, it penetrates to the cellular level and can quickly repair damaged skin tissues and fade away marks. It is used to cure skin conditions like acne, rosacea, eczema and psoriasis (see above). It visibly improves the appearance of skin at a fast pace. So, helichrysum oil can definitely help to reduce stretch marks.

Do you want to know how does helichrysum oil help in getting rid of stretch marks?

Well, it improves the elasticity of the skin and thus, prevents the appearance of stretch marks. This is because the chemical structure of helichrysum oil contains many active molecules and di-ketones that promote cell regeneration. If you already have stretch marks, helichrysum oil will also help nourish the damaged skin tissues due to excessive stretching. The best quality of the oil is that it heals epidermal injuries without leaving any marks behind. It is extremely suitable for sensitive skin so you do not have to worry about any side effects post application. However, you can still conduct a patch test on the insides of your elbow to ensure against any allergic reactions. Helichrysum oil can fade stretch marks within 3 months of continuous use. In fact, you will see your stretch marks fade away within the first few applications.
