Italian Helichrysum is a typically Mediterranean plant that grows in the South of France and Corsica. This plant, also called everlasting flower or immortelle, is an evergreen shrub in the Asteraceae family. Its foliage is aromatic. The Latin name Helichrysum means “golden sun”, in reference to its pretty flowers which look like a sea of miniature suns. The French name immortelle (immortal) comes from the exceptional longevity of Helichrysum flowers.
Greek mythology links Helichrysum to Apollo, who sometimes wore crowns of these yellow flowers to remind everybody of his own immortality.
For many years, its medicinal qualities were not known. It has only been recognised fairly recently in phytotherapy.
