Helichrysum essential oil information

Helichrysum oil is extracted from Helichrysum angustifolium (also known as Helichrysum italicum), of the Asteraceae (Compositae) family and is commonly known as everlasting oil, Immortelle and St. John's herb (not to be confused with St. John's Wort which is known as Hypericum perforatum).

This oil is a strong smelling oil - people normally would describe it as a "herbal smell" and is not unpleasant - yet it does however dominate finer more fragile fragrances.

Oil properties

Helichrysum oil has a strongly straw-like, fruity smell, with a honey and tea undertone and the color can range from pale yellow to red. The viscosity is watery.

Origin of helichrysum oil

This evergreen aromatic herb grows up to 60 cm (24 in) and is also called Italian Everlastings or Immortelle. It has a branched stem, silver-green scented leaves and dark yellow daisy-like flowers, which become dry as the plant matures, yet retain their color.

High quality oil is achieved if distillation occurs within 24 hours of harvesting; the younger plants yield greater quantities.

There are about 500 species of helichrysum, but only a few produce essential oil.

Helichrysum petals were used throughout Europe as a strewing herb in Medieval times.

Extraction Helichrysum oil

Helichrysum oil is extracted from the fresh or dried flowering-head clusters by steam distillation.

Therapeutic properties

The therapeutic properties of helichrysum oil are anti-allergenic, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, astringent, diuretic, analgesic, expectorant, cytophylactic, cholagogue and nervine.

Chemical composition

The main chemical components of helichrysum oil are a-pinene, camphene, b-pinene, myrcene, limonene, 1,8-cineole, linalool, terpinen-4-ol, neryl acetate, nerol, geraniol, eugenol, italidone and other b-diketones.
