Helichrysum Italicum is a perennial herb native to the Mediterranean region, and part of the Asteraceae family. The plant produces golden yellow flowers, from which the essential oil is extracted by steam distillation.
The use of Helichrysum in herbal medicine dates back to Ancient Greece where it was recognised for its many full-body benefits including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, and antimicrobial properties.
Whilst the essential oil is still commonly used for health purposes today, it is better known for its significant skin benefits. These include reducing the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes, soothing and rejuvenating the skin, and promoting healthy cell regeneration and a youthful glow. This is why Helichrysum italicum is known as the immortal or everlasting flower.
When taken internally, helichrysum italicum can support a healthy metabolism. Alternatively, use aromatically to feel more assured.
