Human beings, who have been healing with the essences of plants for thousands of years, have called the same plant by different names in different geographies and at different times. In fact, with changing times and methods, they have learned to find solutions to different problems with the same plants. With one exception...Helichrysum Italicum, also known as the Immortelle Plant or Haystack. In Greek, "Helios" means sun and "Chrysos" means gold. It is clear that this combination, symbolizing the infinity of the sun and the value of gold, is an apt epithet for Immortelle Oil, the "super arnica" of aromatherapy.

What is Immortelle? 

Immortal flower has been a natural plant frequently used since ancient Greek and Roman times until today due to its benefits. The immortelle flower, also known as the "Golden Sun" because its dried flowers resemble the sun, often grows in the Mediterranean region. The flowers of the plant do not fade even if they dry out. For this reason, it is called immortal grass. We can answer the frequently asked question of how to make immortelle oil by saying that immortelle oil, obtained by steam distillation of immortelle flowers, is a 100% natural oil.

Native to the Mediterranean region and Asia, Immortelle Grass, which can grow naturally in dry, stony and coastal areas, forms semi-shrubs that can reach a height of 50 cm. 500 different species of this plant have been identified so far. However, for the benefits of Immortelle Oil, which is our topic, only two main species are grown commercially.
