Helichrysum Hydrosol, Corsica 4 oz.
Helichrysum Hydrosol (Helichrysum italicum)
Helichrysum italicum - Corsica, France
Helichrysum Hydrosol is known as Immortelle in France which translates to Everlasting. Helichrysum Hydrosol is considered the most powerful and effective toners for preventing premature aging and skin rejuvenation. Helicrysum Hydrosol is high in antioxidants similar to vitamin C and is ideal for all skin types. Helichrysum is the most reliable and effective treatment for healing the skin. Unlike Orange Blossom or Rose Hydrosol Helichrysums scent will not open the gateways to aromatic nirvana and bliss; however, Helichrysum Hydrosol has a smokey, herbal, medicinal scent which is not at all unpleasant but not a perfume. It can balance complexion, reduce large pores, give the skin an even texture, repair skin damage, reduce the appearance of age spots, acne, sun damage and improve recovery from sore muscles and bruises.
As a facial toner Helichrysum Hydrosol deeply hydrates the skin and gently repairs skin damage and preserves our youthful appearance. After cleansing the face apply the Helichrsyum Hydrosol with 3-8 sprays, then apply your facial serum and/or high quality lotion. The application of the lotion and serum afterward locks in the hydration from the hydrosol and increases its depth of penetration into the skin. It will take 2-6 weeks of daily use before the greatest benefits are seen. With regular use the accumulative effect is easily seen in the quality of your skins appearance.
Helichrysum Hydrosol is best known for its antiaging properties but it offers the body so much more than that. It is amazing for helping heal bruises, sore muscles, sprains and reducing inflammation. To achieve these effects simply spray the hydrosol on the affected area 3-6 times per day. For faster and more immediate effects first spray the area with Helichrysum Hydrolsol then apply the Pain Relief blend which also contains Helichrysum but in essential oil form.
Helichrysum Hydrosol vs. Essential Oil
Helichrysum is highly valuable because of demand and a large amount of this precious plant is needed to make the essential oil and hydrosol. Helichrysum essential oil is sold by some companies at very high prices, sometimes as much as $50 per milliliter and the Helichrysum Hydrosol is often found at $30 or more for a 2 oz bottle. However, when sourcing direct from the farmer the prices can be less than half these aforementioned values. The hydrosol is a great way to get this treasured herbal medicine on the body at much a lower cost than the essential oil.
Helichrysum from Corsica, France
Helichrysum is a plant which produces yellow flowers and is a distant cousin of chamomile. Corsica, France is a place which is known for producing the world's most effective and powerful medicinal herbs, especially Helichrysum . Helichrysum Hydrolsol is made using steam distillation of fresh picked Helichrysum and cannot be reproduced at home using the essential oil and water. In fact, the hydrosol will contain a unique chemistry when compared to the essential oil.
Anti-Aging Facial Treatment
Cleanse the face with a gentle cleanser and pat dry. The apply 3-8 sprays of Helichrysum Hydrolsol and allow 1-2 minutes for it to soak in. Then apply 1-2 drops Rose Regenerative Facial Oil using the finger tips softly massaging from the center line of the face outward. Then apply an all-natural and organic lotion. This is an amazing facial treatment which will prevent premature aging and will repair and balance the skin. This can be done once or twice daily and should be continued for 2-6 weeks to obtain beautiful skin.
Apply 3-6 sprays of the Helicrysum Hydrosol to the bruise. Allow it to soak in for 1-2 minutes before applying the Pain Relief oil. This is the most effective bruise treatment I have encountered. The results are created primarily because of the combination of Helichrysum Hydrosol and Helichrysum Essential oil.

About Veriditas Hydrosols
Veriditas Hydrosols, uniquely certified organic by BIO, SIMPLE and ECOCERT, are distilled, micro-filtered and UV-filtered in stainless steel stills for an optimum shelf life of up to 5 years. And they are so pure they can be taken internally!
Note that Veriditas Hydrosols are true hydrosols; that is, they are the bi-product of essential oil distillation and are not essential oils added to water. Also known as floral waters, hydrolates, flower waters or distillates, true hydrosols contain all of the water-soluble elements of a plant and are extremely safe and effective for skin care. Because they are a milder extract, hydrosols are suitable for applications where essential oils would be too strong. In most hydrosols there is less than 5% naturally occurring essential oil.
