Helichrysum is an aromatic flowering plant native to the Mediterranean region where it grows in rocky, sandy soil. Helichrysum oil is steam-distilled from the flowering tops of the plant. In Ancient Greece, dried helichrysum flowers were used as offerings to the gods, and in Medieval Europe, as potpourri. Its grounding, warming, and comforting aroma is used in meditation and spiritual work. Helichrysum is an emollient, moisturizing oil that is full of our favorite things: antioxidants, hydration, and soothing properties.
