This enchanting herb, also known as "immortelle" or "everlasting," originates from the Mediterranean region, thriving amidst the sun-kissed landscapes of Southern Europe and North Africa. Its delicate, golden-yellow blooms exude an otherworldly beauty, reminiscent of tiny suns that have captured the essence of eternal light.
Helichrysum's name itself holds significance, as "helios" means "sun" in Greek, while "chrysos" translates to "gold." This beautifully reflects its vibrant appearance and celestial energy, evoking the essence of the sun's life-giving and transformative power.
Our Helichrysum comes in a sealable bag with a weight of 12 grams (0.42 oz), and was packaged with gloves. We recommend doing a skin test to make sure you are not allergic if you plan on using helichrysum topically.
