Immortelle or Helichrysum Italicum is a beautiful strongly aromatic plant with bright yellow flowers. It is grown mainly in the Balkans, Italy and Corsica. It is also referred to as Immortality or Infinity, from the English language Immortelle or Everlast. Its flowers retain their color and brightness after cutting and drying. And in the same way, its rare essential oil has a strong anti-age effect and healing effects, which I will be happy to show you today.
There are many synonyms of Slaměnka names, I always recommend to follow INCI, ie. clearly defined nomenclature in Latin. In Latin nomenclature, it is referred to as Helichrysum Italicum. As is well known, the Romans gained their knowledge of essential oils from the ancient Greeks, and so this Latin name comes from the Greek Helios, ie. sun and Chrysos, ie. gold. Seeing the flowering field of Strawberries is an experience of a lifetime.
Skin regeneration and protection
The rare Straw oil is a truly luxurious affair and a profitable investment. This oil is anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, highly healing, helps to heal bruises and bruises, because it prevents blood clotting, soothes redness, effectively improves the condition of the skin and scars, both new and old. A study (“Anti-inflammatory and Antioxidant Properties of Helichrysum Italicum,” published in the Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology 54, no.3 2002: 365-71.) Of 2002 on the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects of Strawberries scientifically demonstrates a regenerative and protective effect Strawberries against free radicals. That is why this rare oil is added to luxury cosmetics, but you will always find it there only in minimal quantities. Immortelle effectively helps to slow down the aging of the skin and protect it from the adverse effects of the environment.
Dilution with vegetable oil is recommended, 1% essential oil of iris in 99% base oil is sufficient. In other words, add 1 ml, about 25 drops, of immortelle to a 100 ml bottle.
If you want to better heal scars, both old and new, it is recommended to dilute them exclusively with cold-pressed rosehip oil. Mix 15 ml of rosehip oil with 1 ml of immortelle in a 100 ml bottle and top up with another base oil. Apply to scars 2-3 times a day and the effect will appear in 1-6 months. The synergy of omega 3 acids in rosehip oil and terpenoids in immortelle is miraculous. I can only add that I myself use rosehip oil with immortelle and my skin has regenerated significantly, my skin tone has unified and my small wounds from acne have healed. After 3 months of use, I see a significant difference.
Immortelle oil is also recommended for skin injuries. In his book, The Healing Intelligence of Essential Oils, The Science of Advanced Aromatherapy p.152, Kurt Schnaubelt talks about direct application to bleeding wounds that cleanse, relieve pain, and speed up their retraction. It is recommended undiluted, as this logically prevents the access of base oil directly to the wounds.
Immortelle essential oil is simply a miracle that will find its place in your home. Its strong warm herbal scent can surprise you, give it a chance, the result is worth it.
