Helichrysum Essential Oil for hearing loss, tinnitus and ear healing
Helichrysum oil, also known as ‘Everlasting’ and ‘Immortal’ essential oil, is made from the European flower species H.Angustifolium and H. Italicum. The oil is well known for its restorative properties to the skin, liver and nervous system but I discovered that it is also known for its ability to help ear health problems such as hearing loss and tinnitus.
I’ve compiled all the information and positive reports from users that I found here so you don’t have to search for it. They should link to the original page:
We found information that Helichrysum can help if the hearing loss is due to infection and inflammation, and also in some cases of nerve damage. Results can be wonderful, with profound hearing returning, to much more subtle improvements with some hearing only restored after several months of use. If hearing loss is due to deterioration or arthritis of the small bones in the ear – most likely there will be no improvement at all. As with any medication or medical plan, there are no guarantee’s
I had no hearing in my left ear at all. For two month I used Helichrysum Blend in the morning and in the evening. I put the oil on a small cotton ball and put it inside my ear. Sometimes I put Lavender on it as well. I can talk on the phone now and hear like normal.
I used Helichrysum Blend for tinnitus! It took a week or two to notice a difference, and it’s completely gone after about 5 months. I used a drop of Helichrysum on a cotton ball at night and put it in ear. About 2-3x a day I apply it around my ear and the back side of my ear (next to my hairline).
Good for nerve damage. Also use for ringing in ears. Put on mastoid bone and ringing disappears.
My husband is living testimony to hearing loss – using this oil brought a lot of it back, and he hasn’t stopped using it yet.
It works great on all ear ailments. BIG time! Just put some on the tip of your pinky finger and rub it into the ear canal until you hear it clicking and sloshing a bit. smile emoticon From my knowledge base, you mustn’t drop Essential Oil’s directly INTO the ear canal, but rubbing it into the outer ear canal in powerful on all ear issues.
My new journey with Helichrysum has been amazing. I have struggled with Meniere’s for two years, with tinnitus, hearing loss and vertigo. I began with Lavender and then add this one. This combination has helped with these in wondrous ways. I have not had a vertigo attack since I started this duo. Wow!
Some people claim that Helichrysum can improve hearing and reverse some loss of hearing (active in motivating heavy metals to leave brain and auditory areas – chelating agent for metallic, chemicals and toxins).
I am hearing impaired and have read about this oil, so I found this company and ordered it. I got this oil from this company on Saturday 16th and started to put the oil behind my ears as well in the ear canal, but do not drip the oil into the eardrum. I have been doing this twice a day and within 3 days I was getting better clarity in my hearing. I wasn’t wearing hearing aids and I was able to hear family talk behind me while the tv was on and browsing on the iPad. I have only been doing this for a week total, but will continue ….. Very excited about the potential..
Helichrysum Essential Oil has been used for hearing loss due to nerve damage. One customer who heard other deaf people experience success, applied it daily around the outside of his ears and inside as far as the pointer finger could fit and in 3 months was hearing through walls, something he had not been able to do since he went deaf when he was 5 years old.
My sister suddenly had complete nerve deafness in her left ear 19 years ago. Doctors told her there was nothing they could do. After hearing that they had had success in Egypt using Helichrysum for nerve deafness, she decided to give it a try. What did she have to lose? After faithfully applying one drop of Helichrysum daily to the mastoid bone behind her ear for 7 months, she had regained significant hearing in her left ear. After 11 months, it was even greater. Praise God for Helichrysum!
I bought this because I have severe tinnitus from a brain tumor. So far this is providing me some relief, a lessening in the noise I hear.
I suffered a head injury from a motor vehicle accident 20 years ago and lost hearing in my left ear. One year ago I hit my head and had recurrent symptoms similar to the head injury 20 years ago–tinnitus and fullness in the head and difficulty hearing in my good ear. I was especially concerned to conserve my hearing in my right ear. I put Helichrysum oil around the ear and on the reflex points for the brain and ear on my feet. I repeated this every 20 min and after 2 hours my symptoms disappeared! I was amazed!
But after about four days, I thought I was hearing better, but wasn’t sure of it. After a week, there was no doubt about it. I was able to hear the minister, and take part in conversations where only one person was speaking at a time. Also, for the first time in several years, I was able to hear the birds singing outside the house. It was so wonderful hearing them sing.
Off course I can’t verify any of these statements but I decided to give it a try anyway. It’s quite a scarce plant so prices are high and my 5 ml bottle cost me just over £20 (Corsican variety of H. italicum). But given it it has so many wonderful benefits I wanted to introduce it to my medicinal kit. Anyway, for me, I would give every last penny I have to get my hearing back so what’s £20 anyway?
I’ve been using Helichrysum oil for about a month now every night before I go to bed. I’m massaging a few drops of it undiluted, directly to the outside of my ears and just inside the bowl (please do not put ANYTHING directly into your ears) and all around the ear at the scalp and a bit down the neck. Its a nice soothing thing to do for oneself and takes very little time to do. I’m going to start massaging it into the ear reflexology points of my feet from now on. This is just below the two little toes
Its already shown itself to be a fantastic wound healer. I had a really deep cut to my thumb from a clumsy accident with the guillotine. It wouldn’t heal for at least a week. When my Helichrysum Oil finally arrived I dabbed a bit of it on my wound and the next day it seemed to have started healing over. It really was quite a difference.
Some of the properties of Helichrysum Essential Oil that I found online:
- Encourages cell growth and repair – speeds up the healing of wounds, bruises and bones, and reduces the appearance of skin marks, wrinkles, stretch marks and scars.
- Smooths, moisturizes and softens skin. Used in anti-aging products for its rejuvenating benefits to the skin (emollient)
- Reduces swelling and inflammation (anti-inflammatory)
- Can ease digestive, facial, or pulmonary spasms as well as other muscle spasms (Anti-spasmodic)
- Helps to thin the blood (anti-coagulant)
- Protects wounds from becoming septic and can be directly applied to wounds, cuts, pricks, and any other open sores that could become infected (antiseptic)
- Protects the body against many microbial infections – anti-microbial/anti-viral/anti-fungal.
- Strengthens, regenerates and protects the nervous system (nervine)
- Soothes, regulates, protects and detoxifies the liver (hepatic)
- Keeps the spleen healthy and free from infections (splenic)
- Clears accumulation of blood or blood clots (anti-hematic)
- Expectorant – warms the respiratory system and gives relief from continuous cough and congestion
- Energetically and emotionally –
- opens and strengthens the solar plexus
- uplifts and increases feeling of safety and security.
- cuts through emotional blocks and allows release of repressed emotions.
- strengthens patience, persistence and compassion
- for those who do too much, try to control too much and take too little time out for themselves causing resentment, frustration, irritability, and moodiness. For those with a negative attitude brought on by the vulnerability of emotional trauma.
Given these properties, Helichrysum Oil is indicated within the treatment of
skin disorders, digestive disorders, bronchitis, colds, coughs, gallbladder infections, menstrual cramps, and sinus infections, asthma, bronchitis, whooping cough, headaches, liver ailments, arthritis, backache, carpal tunnel syndrome, rheumatism, and sciatica, varicose veins, hearing loss and tinnitus….and much more.
Which type and where to buy?
I have spoken to an experienced aromatherapist and she has confirmed that the variety must be Corsican variety – Helichrysum italicum. She also recommended a company called Oshadhi. I haven’t used this brand myself but she said from chemical analysis their oils are very pure. They are a LOT more expensive but if you want highest quality oils then you may want to try them. They say you get what you pay for!
I myself simply purchased one that seemed to be good value for money but not too cheap. Expect to pay around £20-£30 for 5ml (yes its not cheap!). Make sure it is 100% pure. Here are some options to look at if you can’t afford Oshadi:
- Naissance 100% Pure Helichrysum Essential Oil – 5ml
- Nature Sun Aroms – Organic Helichrysum Essential Oil – 5ml
Other oils indicated to help for tinnitus and hearing loss conditions include:
Lavender, Geranium, Cypress and Juniper Berry.
Have you found any benefits to your hearing loss or tinnitus from Helichrysum Oil?
Please let me know…comment below. I’d really like this blog to become a resource of positive news stories for others recovering from this condition or similar ones. There is WAY TOO MUCH information online telling us that hearing loss cannot be restored….with this brain-washing it’s no wonder we don’t get better!
Our minds are powerful, lets focus on tapping into the body’s innate healing capability. We must believe it is possible. So lets put all the good new stories in one place and focus on those x

Sounds like a fascinating oil. Never heard of this one before. It’s interesting you mention the foot reflexology point just under the little toe – I broke the bone in my left little toe a week ago and the surrounding area is bruised and for the last 2 days I’ve had pulsatile tinnitus in my left ear! It demonstrates the connection rather neatly!
June 14, 2015 @ 10:53 am
Hey Moni, that’s so interesting. I hope your toe heals quickly. if you can get some of this oil it will help speed up healing time…Arnica also..you can use mine when I see you x

Hello Candice. I’ve just discovered your inspirational blog. I truly wish you so well in your recovery. I would be grateful if you could suggest a reputable place to buy this essential oil. Thank you so much.
June 29, 2015 @ 11:59 pm
Thank you Sasha x I went on a wild goose chase with this oil. I wanted to get a high quality oil but without paying extortionate prices. I don’t want to promote the company here because I can’t vouch for their quality, in the end it was only my personal research and judgement…but I will message you privately.

Hi there. The one I found per a link sent me to Amazon and was $99. Is there a cheaper brand that works just as well?? Thanks!! firstname.lastname@example.org
March 9, 2016 @ 5:10 pm
Wow that’s just a silly price! It is an expensive oil and expect to pay around £20 for 5ml. I purchased from http://www.quinessence.com/essential-oils/h_l-9.htm. I am not endorsing them in any way I simply found the price was reasonable and they had quality controls in place. I chose the Bosnian one rather than the Corsican one as it is a bit cheaper.
December 2, 2017 @ 6:31 pm
I purchased a 2.5 no bottle from PlantTherapy.com to get started. Much more reasonable.
December 2, 2017 @ 6:32 pm
Typo… 2.5 ml

Hi. I’ve been using this oil for ringing in my right ear by putting drops on a cotton ball & using at bedtime. I also rub it inside & outside of my ear during the day. I’ve used it for almost 3 weeks, and there is no difference at all. I’m going to continue using the oil until it’s gone. I’m just hoping the ringing will eventually go away.
October 11, 2017 @ 2:24 pm
A friend new with using the oils (training to get her certification for raindrop therapy) put some Helichrysum directly into my ears, rubbing it a bit, because I have horrible tinnitus. It began burning really bad and so she put in a coconut oil that brought some soothing. It really scared me. I’m not so sure it hasn’t harmed me. Can I please get your opinion?
October 11, 2017 @ 9:16 pm
Before I start let me stress that I’m not an expert in essential oil use. What I do know is that essential oils are powerful and should be used with care. Generally they need to be diluted with a carrier oil. This oil is safe to use neat however I am not a big fan of putting anything directly into the ears and only ever suggest rubbing it around the external tissue of the ear and the scalp. However, in my non expert view this is very unlikely to cause any long term damage as even if it is poured into the ear it can’t go all the way inside as the ear drum protects the middle ear. You have probably irritated the skin and this will heal. How is it feeling now?
Its so easy to be persuaded by all the hype online for ‘natural cures’. I made all sorts of concoctions to put in my ears when I lost my hearing and sometimes I felt like I made it worse. Be careful with your ears they are so precious. X

No oils directly in the ears…I’ve read that everywhere.

Dear Selena, I compiled this information when I was looking for a cure but so far no one has written to me telling me they have cured their hearing using the oil. It’s worth trying but you must be realistic. In my experience the people who have cochlear implants get their lives back. They hear very well. I think this sounds like a much more realistic way to get your life back. The oil is expensive and you would need to use it daily for a long time to judge if it is having an affect.
May 28, 2018 @ 10:32 pm
CANDICE, in your few years of living with this condition, what exactly have you found that improves your hearing if at all? I too have autoimmune inner ear disease, without my HA in my ONLY hearing ear, I can’t hear a darn thing unless you are right on me and I have to to focus. Curious as to where you are now since 2015? Thanks!
May 28, 2018 @ 10:48 pm
Hi, Unfortunately its very hard to tell because I am applying so many natural methods and I don’t know where I would be if i didn’t do those things! :s
June 24, 2018 @ 11:55 pm
How is the oil applied for hearing loss?
June 28, 2018 @ 12:34 pm
Massaged to the outside of the ear and around it
October 28, 2018 @ 2:08 am
Hi, if I apply a drop of Helichrysum to both sides of my ear, in my ear canal an on the mastoid bone, how often should I do it? Thanks
October 28, 2018 @ 9:09 pm
its best to apply the oil to your fingertips and then massage in to the outside of the ear. Try twice a day – there are no hard and fast rules.
