Helichrysum Essential Oil (Corsica)
Helichrysum Essential Oil
Also known as Everlasting Essential Oil and Immortal Essential Oil
Helichrysum Essential Oil (Corsica) (Helichrysum italicum) from Corsica is Wildcrafted Therapeutic Quality Essential Oil steam distilled from the flowers.
Corsican Helichrysum Essential Oil is considered to be the very best of all the Helichrysums, though some do prefer the slightly sharper aroma of the French Helichrysum.
Helichrysum Essential Oil (Corsica) is also referred to as Helichrysum Angustifolium. Helichrysum is a low yield essential oil, steam distilled from flowering tops. The aroma is often described in many ways:
- slightly fruity
- slightly buttery
Despite the varied descriptions, most perfumers and aromatherapists would agree that the aroma of Helichrysum Corsica is amazingly complex. Though expensive, it adds amazing notes to blends. Chamomile, Citrus, Geranium, Lavender, and Clary Sage produce very pleasing results when blended with Helichrysum.
