Keep it on the down-low (it is my secret weapon, after all), but I personally use helichrysum. This super-powerful anti-inflammatory is a key ingredient in our Breathe Easy blend, and the best part about helichrysum is that a little bit goes a long way.
I included it in the Breathe Easy blend because it’s so great for seasonal allergies and it’s also an antihistamine. Along with being really great for any congestion, helichrysum can also be used for hives or dermatitis (diluted in a carrier oil).
The helichrysum hydrosol, in particular, is incredibly helpful as it is appropriate to spray directly in front of your face.
