Helichrysum essential oil may be used with other essential oils to amplify or improve its potential. Use the following suggested blends to maximize the range of benefits that Helichrysum essential oil may provide.
A variety of extraction methods are used to create essential oils. These methods include distillation, cold-press, and CO2 extraction. Helichrysum essential oil is extracted using the distillation method.
Steam distillation is the most common method of extracting essential oils. Distillation forces the water portion of the plant (hydrosol) apart from the volatile (essential) oil. The essential oil transfers into a cooling chamber. The quality of the resulting oil depends on many factors—including the growth methods of the plant and the process and experience of the distiller.
Each plant yields a different volume of oil during the distillation process depending on its chemical properties. If a particular essential oil retails at a higher price, it is because more plant was required to result in that amount of oil.
