Helichrysum Essential Oil
Also called “Immortelle” (“Everlasting” in French), Helichrysum essential oil is rare and precious. It has been used for centuries to treat wrinkles, acne scars and skin redness. Growing around the Mediterranean Sea, it takes one ton of helichrysum flowers to make a single liter of this treasured essential oil.

* Patch test with essential oils: Dilute 1-2 drops of essential oil in a teaspoon of carrier oil (olive oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil…) and place a pea size amount of the diluted mixture to your inner forearm.
