HELICHRYSUM | Essential Oil

  • $42.00

Pure Helichrysum italicum essential oil.

Helichrysum, also known as Imortelle, derives its name from its small yellow flowers that never wither. It grows prolifically along Mediterranean coastlines, filling the air with its warm, sweet and honeyed perfume, reminiscent of chamomile and hay.

A symbol of the sun, helichrysum (translating to "golden sun") is associated with Apollo and serves as a reminder of the god's immortality. It has been revered since antiquity for its
 healing and anti-aging properties, but is a relatively new addition to the perfumer's palette.

Essential oils, absolutes, and other pure plant extracts should not be applied to the skin without being properly diluted in a cosmetic carrier (such as jojoba oil, ethanol, epsom salts, etc.) Always patch-test when using an essential oil or absolute for the first time, and research whether or not the extract you are using is skin-safe, or that it is appropriate for its intended use. Do not ingest essential oils or apply them internally, and avoid contact with the eyes.
