Helichrysum Immortelle Essential Oil – Helichrysum italicum – is produced from the bright yellow flowers of the daisy plant family found growing in the drier rocky areas of its native area, the Mediterranean. Italicum produces clusters of flowers which appear papery and dry so last for ages in dry flower arrangements which is why it is often referred to as the everlasting flower.
