Helichrysum: Apply Neat
This week, however, I had the opportunity to apply Helichrysum neat - that is, directly on a cut on my hand. Just a drop on the wound resulted in very fast healing. I was shocked at how quickly the cut resolved. In a matter of 24 hours, the inflammation had reduced significantly, and wound was close to being completely healed. Now, 72 hours later, I can see that after applying one drop of Helichrysum directly on the wound 1-2 times per day, this cut will be gone within the next day.
I have used Helichrysum in my skin care products, but this is the first time I've used it as an alternative in first aid for a superficial wound. I'm very impressed.
