Helichrysum works great to help relieve Plantar Fasciitis (inflammation causing shooting pains in the heals of the feet). Apply to the heels.

Caution: DO NOT USE IF PREGNANT! I believe it may have led to my water breaking early and premature birth. I can't be certain that was the cause but after additional research (I did some brief research before using but found no warnings so used it) I found that it should not be used during pregnancy especially on the feet where maximum absorbency occurs.
