Aromatic. Healing. Regenerative.

History:

Commonly known as Immortelle or Everlasting, Helichrysum grows profusely in many areas of the world, particularly Africa. The oil distilled from this herb has been associated with speeding the regeneration of nerves while reducing inflammation; in fact, its wound-healing properties were first used by the ancient Greeks.

Source:

We source our essential oil from unsprayed crops in Croatia, where recently harvested fresh flowers are steam distilled.

Proven Benefits:

Helichrysum is therapeutically used for its anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, and cicatrisant properties. It is also a highly effective tonic for the nervous system, known for its support in cases of deep trauma. An emotional balancer, it is also said to stimulate intuition and creative thinking.
