Traditionally a plant grown in the Mediterranean, I've managed to grow and maintain a true helichrysum italicum in the NW. The essential oil derived from Helichrysum has a sought after healing agent with reputable ability to heal skin ailments. Unfortunately, the amount of flowers needed to make even a small amount of essential oil is great and renders this oil very costly limiting its ability to reach many people. Our oil is created from hand-harvesting the flowers then infusing them for 4 weeks in olive oil. The resulting oil created is a beautiful golden color and has an amazing fragrance. This oil can be used exactly like the essential oil, requires no diluting, and is affordable without adding harmful processing chemicals or over harvesting the plant.
