Heal wounds, scars, blemishes and dry skin with helichrysum essential oil, which is a sweet and flowery essence that is distilled from several varieties of the helichrysum plant. With an odor that has been described as a combination of burnt sugar and ham, helichrysum essential oil contains many antibacterial and antifungal properties. Dab 1 to 2 drops on pimples or acne. Or blend 10 to 15 drops with 1/2 cup organic honey, 1/4 cup fractionated coconut oil and 1 cup of milk. Add the mixture to a warm bath to soothe rashes, insect bites and sunburns.

Beauty Tip: Use helichrysum essential oil to sooth your troubled skin, naturally.
