Background Information on Helichrysum Essential Oil 

Helichrysum flowering tops are collected to make the essential oil by the steam distillation process. It is commonly known as Immortelle because the flowers are long lasting and do not wither easily.  It has silver-green scented leaves and dark yellow flowers. The younger plants yield greater qualities of essential oil.

Helichrysum petals were used in Europe as strewing herbs in the past. The oil is pale and transparent. Its viscosity is watery. Its honey-like scent makes it attractive to perfume industries. About 500 species of helichrysum exist, but only a few produce essential oil.

Similar to wine, the same species of Helichrysum can yield different chemical constituents and scent. This depends upon the area of the world it is produced and if the plants grown are seaside or mountaineous region.
