Profile:
Helichrysum gymnocephalum, typically grown in Madagascar on wild shrubs with aromatic small yellow flowers, has a fresh, camphoraceous, eucalyptus-like aroma. The branches are covered by white, fine hairs that are harvested for this oil.

Please note:
Like most varieties of Helichrysum, Helichrysum gymnocephalum possesses a unique chemical profile and differs significantly in therapeutic properties from other species of Helichrysum and specifically from the more popular H. italicum.

While Helichrysums in general make positive contributions to aromatherapy, recognition of the dramatic differences between the species, and specifically the benefits of Helichrysum gymnocephalum, make for an interesting study.

This is a new essential oil for me .. and when I first 'sniffed' the sample it was more of a eucalyptus globulus scent that I could identify.. just softer not as harsh. And I immediately thought what a great addition to any respiratory / sinus / headache synergy this would make.

The major component being 1.8 cineole...which is as much as is found in many Eucalyptus oils. It also contains a-pinene and �-pinene. We know that a-pinene is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antispasmodic, antiviral and anti-fungal (candida). And �-Pinene is found to be a potent scavenger of free radicals. Because of this combination I would think it would also make it a valuable addition to topical pain relief blends.

Avoid during pregnancy.
