-Benefits of Helichrysum oil:
-Skin Antibiotic and Speeds up Healing.
A review done by the Health Sciences Research Centre at the University of Beira in Portugal found that helichrysum’s flavonoids and terpene compounds were effective against bacteria and fungus growth that can cause various skin irritations, including rashes, infections and delayed wound healing.
-Helichrysum can help hydrate burnt skin and relieve the pain following sunburns. It can also decrease signs of aging on the skin and block UV-light damage that can contribute to the formation of skin cancer.
According to medical studies, helichrysum oil has strong antibiotic and antimicrobial properties that make it a great natural cure for acne, for it works without drying the skin or causing redness and other unwanted side effects (like the ones by harsh chemical acne treatments or medications).
How exactly does helicrysum do so much for the human body?
According to studies done so far, scientists believe that part of the reason is the strong antioxidant properties — especially in the form of acetophenones and phloroglucinols — present within helichrysum oil.
-Benefits of Frankincense:
-Helps calm stressed skin.
-Helps Boost Immune System Function
-Astringent, Kills Harmful Germs and Bacteria
-Heals Skin and Prevents Signs of Aging
Why a tattoo balm?
We were at our local farmers market doing our thing, when a customer wanted to use one of our balms on his tattoo. He walked around in the cold and very dry (we are in the desert over here!) weather and after an hour he was sold. We got to work on creating a balm with the essential oils specifically recommended for tattoo care. After a lot of research we decided the two oils (and most expensive oils in the “essential oil world”) would go into our balm. Frankincense and Helichrysum. Two of the most prized oils in the world.
The same week, we just happened to be contacted by an Organic Helichrysum farmer wanting to supply us with her oils straight from the farm…coincidence? I think not! Then next thing you know…BAM…TATTOO Balm is born.
