Helichrysum Essential Oil (Slovenia)
Botanical name: Helichrysum italicum
Extraction method: Slovenia Helichrysum Essential Oil is steam distilled from the flowers of a varietal of the Helichrysum plant botanically known as Helichrysum italicum. Steam is carefully controlled and passed over the flowers so that Essential Oil is released while protecting the temperature-sensitive aromatic and botanical compounds in it.
Description: the Helichrysum plant boasts over 500 species and Helichrysum italicum is one of them. Indigenous to the Mediterranean and Asia, the Helichrysum plant is evergreen and sports gray-silver grass and tiny daisy-like yellow flowers growing in clusters.
This Slovenia Helichrysum Essential Oil is steam distilled from the Helichrysum italicum varietal. We also stock the more exotic South Africa Helichrysum Essential Oil that is steam distilled from the Helichrysum splendidum varietal.
