A flowering herb, Helichrysum is known as ‘Immortelle’ or ‘Everlasting’ due to its long-lasting, bright yellow blooms and its oil’s rejuvenating effect on the skin. It is especially useful for mature, damaged, dry or irritated skin-types as it promotes cellular regeneration and scar tissue repair. The oil can also be applied to irritations, such as minor bruises, burns and sprains, as well as facial blemishes. Helichrysum’s aroma is potent and calming with herbal, smoky and medicinal notes.
