Helichrysum Oil

  • Helichrysum has silver-gray, grassy foliage with a collection of golden flowers at the top, which blossom in mid-summer. The colour of the flowers lasts long after they have been picked and dried. Its name is derived from the Greek words ‘Helios’ meaning 'Sun' and ‘Chrysos’ meaning 'Gold'. Helichrysum has been used since the time of the ancient Greeks, who often used it after battles.
