Superior Corsican Oil

The Tooth Faerie uses Immortelle, also known as Helichrysum Italicum from Corsica; it has a rich, sweet, delicate fragrance with spicy warm overtones. It is one of the most effective essential oils for reducing scar tissue, stretch marks, or indeed, any dermatological  issues. It is commonly included in detox blends since it stimulates the liver, gall bladder, kidneys and spleen. Helichrysum has been approved by the FDA for internal consumption and so can be used as a dietary supplement. However, if pregnant, do not use this oil before consulting your GP.
