MONTAGUE, California – November, 2005 - One of the most astounding essential oils, Helichrysum (Helichrysum italicum, ssp serotinum), Helichrysum has been difficult to obtain from US suppliers because it was assumed the proper species (Helichrysum italicum, ssp. serotinum) could not be successfully grown on US soil to provide sufficient efficacious compounds.
The botanical experts at Diamond Lotus™ spent more than five years planting, cultivating, harvesting and steam distilling their certified organic Helichrysum essential oil to contain high levels of therapeutic compounds. Tested by an independent laboratory, Diamond Lotus’ 100% pure Helichrysum essential oil was found to contain high levels of the compounds important for its benefits:
The most important components characteristic to Helichrysum oil are the diketones which are typically highest in the Corsican variety at about 4-10%. The Diamond Lotus Helichrysum oil has the highest diketone content ever reported with an estimated minimum 25% diketones (according to GC/MS conducted by Applied Essential Oil Research). In addition to its tissue benefits, the aromatic properties of the essential oil have been shown to help alleviate stress and stress-related issues.
Helichrysum is certain to regain its place as “one of the most astounding essential oils” – now available from a certified organic US grower and distiller, Diamond Lotus Essentials™ (www.diamondlotusoils.com). Diamond Lotus™ botanicals are grown in volcanic soil at the foot of Mt. Shasta in Northern California and are certified organic for the US, EU and Asia.
