I have been using helichrysum essential oil for many years for my kids soccer bruises and sprains as well as a variety of other small traumas like finger slammed in the door. It is a miracle healer! I always dilute it in Jojoba oil (5 drops to 1 oz). The Pompeii Organics Helichrysum is one of the nicest I've ever used.
