Helichrysum Melitense is an aromatic flowering shrub found only on the sheer coastal cliffs of the Maltese isles; the plant is also known as Maltese Everlasting. Essential oil made from Helichrysum Melitense has antiallergenic, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. It’s also an expectorant that helps to expel mucous from the lungs.
Helichrysum essential oil is known for:
- Alleviating respiratory ailments like asthma
- Reducing inflammation
- Reducing pain caused by migraines
- Relieving the pain of rheumatism and arthritis
- Treating colds, ‘flu, coughs and bronchitis
- Helping with circulatory problems
- Helping with digestive problems
Did you know? Helichrysum Melitense flowers have a pleasant spicy scent similar to curry, and dried flowers can last for many years without losing their original colours – hence the name “Maltese Everlasting”.
Massage therapy: Dilute a few drops of Helichrysum essential oil with a carrier oil, and use as a soothing massage treatment to ease sore muscles and joints, treat respiratory problems, and stimulate digestion and circulation.
Vapour therapy: A few drops added to your bath or inhaled as a vapour therapy treatment will work to sooth aches and pains, stimulate the circulation and help with digestion.

I read that it helps for ringing in the ears. I tried it and it works like magic for me. I use it neat inside my ears and at the back of the ears in the morning.
