Helichrysum italicum grows wild in high-altitude Mediterranean areas in extreme sunlight. Helichrysum is also known as Immortelle or Everlasting, because the flowers keep their yellow color even after drying out. Our 100% pure helichrysum is steam-distilled from flowers grown in Slovenia.
Helichrysum can repair damaged skin, and has the power to soothe away deep emotional stress, and to defuse anger and negative emotions. Apply topically at very small (0.5% is effective) dilution.
Helichrysum Slovenia Essential Oil has a powerful scent that can be described as a rich and honey-sweet. It is both woody and fresh.
The word Helichrysum is derived from the Greek word helios meaning sun and chrysos meaning gold. This is a reference to the golden color of many of the flowers from this botanical genus. Helichrysum has been used since the time of the ancient Greeks for its great wound healing ability, and was used often after battles.
