Curry Plant (Helichrysum Italicum)
It is known for its anti-haematomal, anti-spasmodic, analgesic, anti-viral, anti-allergic, and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also very effective in healing tissue in scars – both new and old. It heals scars from surgery, skin reactions, stretch marks, and allergic reactions.
Application on wounds is known to accelerate healing without attracting infections since it is rich in diketones. It can be applied to all types of inflamed tissues such as hemorrhoids, open wounds, cuts, and burns where it controls pain, infection, and swelling and promotes quick and scar-less healing.
Modern science studies also indicate that Helichrysum has the ability to promote the regeneration of skin tissue and hence, it is used in skincare treatments for acne, psoriasis, dermal inflammation, radiation burns, eczema, and childhood dermatitis.
In ancient times and continuing traditional and alternative health systems, it is used for treating joint pain, rheumatoid arthritis, bruises, swellings, open wounds, sprains, and tissue trauma.
Helichrysum is also effective in treating depression, anxiety, and emotional trauma.
◉ 1-3 teaspoons of loose tea (or 3g up to 3 times) daily. If more than one herbal mixture is consumed at the same period of time, reduce the amount of tea accordingly.
◉ When herbs are used for an extended period of time, it is suggested to consume a herbal remedy with a ratio of 3 to 1. For example:
- If you choose to take it for 3 weeks, have a one-week pause.
- If it is taken for a 30-day period, have a 10-day pause.
That does not apply to herbs and fruits that have a laxative effect.
◉ Should be stored in airtight glass containers -in a cool, dark, and dry place- to preserve the flavor, texture, and properties.
◉ Before adding a new herbal remedy or supplement to your daily routine, you should consult with a medical doctor or holistic health practitioner.
