This delicious golden oil, also know as the Everlasting Flower or Italian Straw Flower, Immortelle is a rare and precious skincare ingredient. It is distilled from the Helichrysum italicum flower, a daisy that grows in the dry, rocky ground around the mediterranean. Only a select few species of this flower family produce essential oil for distillation making it incredibly valuable and highly sought after.
It’s not only it’s rare availability that makes this oil so special but the many benefits it holds for your skin. This powerful oil is extremely healing, especially for scars and skin conditions such as acne whilst it’s regenerative properties reduce the appearance of fine lines and aid in cell renewal. It is even used on post-surgery wounds wounds to aid healing and reduce inflammation.
