Ingredient Spotlight – Helichrysum

Look how beautiful!

Look how beautiful!

Today I wanted to put one of my favorite essential oils in the spotlight. Can you guess what it is? It is Helichrysum! I love it’s unique scent. Helichrysum smells herbaceous and sweet with a little something spicy. If you have never tried Helichrysum before, I highly recommend giving it a chance. In fact, I think so highly of it, I will be making some samples of our Body Butter Base with our Helichrysum Essential Oil!

I’ll even share the recipe. Are you ready? This is super easy!

If you want to make your own product featuring the Helichrysum Essential Oil, I highly recommend giving Mama Julie’s Elbow Stick a whirl. It is a great intensive stick that helps with dry elbows and dry knuckles!
