Everlasting Immortelle Essential Oil is a floral oil of ethereal, exquisite, and ennobled proportions. This enchanting essence is wild harvested in the high altitude rocky cliffs of the Corsican countryside. Nadine has been working with our brilliant distiller since 1994 and we are sure to reserve our supply a year in advance as our distillers are only able to create a few litres of this extraordinary oil each season.

Known alternatively as Everlasting flower, Italian Straw Flower, and Sun Gold oil, this oil is steam distilled from the precious petals of the Helichrysum italicum flower. It is wild-crafted on the island of Corsica, where the flowers can prosper under a gorgeous yellow sun. In the rocky Corsican cliffs, the flowers grow at an altitude of 4,000 feet. The chemistry of this high altitude soil makes the oil more beneficial than any other immortelle variety and distillation.

"Sometimes Immortelle is also called Sun Gold because of its ball-shaped golden yellow blossom. The plant grows to 20 inches high. It has delicate, lance-shaped leaves, which in some species are covered with white hair. The scent of a crushed leaf is surprising, with its intense curry fragrance. When dried, the plant keeps its shape and the flower, its yellow color. The immortelle seems indeed immortal – a grand claim for such a tiny flower – and ideal for dried flower arrangements."

"Helichrysum has superior skin rejuvenating properties..."

"Immortelle supports deep breathing and the scent has a relaxing, elevating effect on the mind. The scent of immortelle is also thought to increase dream activity and awareness, and to stimulate intuition. This makes it of use in meditation, active imagination and the creative arts."
