Botanical name: Helichrysum Italicum
Plant part: Flower
Extraction: Steam distillation
With the Greek origins of its name; "helios" and "chrysos" meaning sun and gold respectively, Helichrysum italicum is also known as "Everlasting" and "Immortelle", because of its golden yellow flowering tops which remain bright even as they dry out.
In its pure form which is what we offer, it is an expensive and scarcely available essential oil, but the wealth of benefits it offers and long shelf life compensate for its hefty price tag.
