Helichrysum (Helichrysum italicum) has a fresh, earthy, herbaceous scent that lifts the spirit. Helichrysum flowers are commonly called Everlasting or Immortelle.
While the reference to "long life" made by these names may have come about because the flowers dry without losing their color and beauty, it could just as well refer to the amazing properties of the oil, which has a wide range of applications. It supports healthy skin, nerves, and circulation.*
Helichrysum scores 17,430 on the antioxidant ORAC scale.
