The essential oil of the “Cape Gold” comes from the farm of the McMahon family. Their farm is located in the Magoebaskloof hills in the Limpopo province of South Africa. They are the only producers of this essential oil in the world.
Helichrysum splendidum is an indigenous South African plant of the genus Helichrysum that grows in the Magoebaskloof Mountains. Although it is not limited to this area, it is indeed a very local plant.
According to the manufacturer: when used on the skin, it has cell regenerating properties and can reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks. It increases blood circulation in the skin, which brings relief from pains associated with rheumatism and arthritis. The Helichrysum soothes irritations and accelerates the healing of the epidermis. When inhaled, it can also help get rid of excess mucus associated with colds.
For external use only, do not use undiluted on the skin!
