Buyer beware.

I had a very important charity sporting clays event to attend; only problem was I had not fired a shotgun in over 15 years! The weekend before the event, I went to the range to practice and get comfortable with the "kick" of the gun. Things went very well until the last 2 shots, when I became over confident and allowed the gun to rest at my armpit rather then at my shoulder. The bruise began to appear before we even had the car packed up - by that night my arm was stiff to move and the bruise - black in color, had spread to almost my elbow.

I only had 5 days to heal before the charity event; for a bruise that severe it would normally take at least 2 weeks, so I needed to find something that was going to work - FAST! I remembered Helichrysum was a goof oil to use for blood issues - a bruise is clotted blood so I decided to give it a try.

I rubbed some over the bruises before I went to bed and woke up to a large purple bruise (better then black) and rubbed some more before I went to work.

When I got home and took off my blouse to rub on more oil, I was shocked to see the purple had faded to a pale brown - almost 10 days of healing in less then 24 hours! By the time the event took place, I was totally healed and was able to put over 100 rounds through the shotgun with absolutely no pain or stiffness.

Supporting Scientific Study
helichrysum-oil - "...its flowers and leaves are the most used parts in the treatment of health disorders such as allergies, colds, cough, skin, liver and gallbladder disorders, inflammation, infections and sleeplessness... In vitro studies characterized Helichrysum as an antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory agent. Its flavonoids and terpenes were effective against bacteria (e.g. Staphylococcus aureus), its acetophenones, phloroglucinols and terpenoids displayed antifungal action against Candida albicans and its flavonoids and phloroglucinols inhibited HSV and HIV, respectively.... Regarding Helichrysum italicum in vivo activity, the highlight goes to ...the anti-inflammatory properties exhibited by its flavonoids, acetophenones and phloroglucinols, as seen in animal models."Link
