Helichrysum gymnocephalum essential oil admired for upper respiratory relief is also said to be able to reduce pain and tension in the upper torso. Very different
to Helichrysum italicum
known for skin and wound care, Helichrysum gymnocephalum is said to be powerful for use in a diffuser or oil warmer with cold, flu, congestion, and headaches.
Some sources state Helichrysum gymnocephalum has a camphoraceous medicinal smell. Our noses pick up an aroma more terpenic than camphoraceous with an underlying sweet slightly fruity-floral side. The combined total of terpinenes and terpineol in this organic grown and certified organic distilled Helichrysum gymnocephalum is 8.25%.
Helichrysum gymnocephalum is an excellent choice for those with less affinity to the smell of Eucalyptus and other camphoraceous medicinal smelling oils.
