Immortelle Essential Oil Organic
Immortelle: Helichrysum italicum (Roth)
Why immortelle? The flower of life! Helichrysum comes from the Greek helios meaning sun and chrysos meaning “gold.” The name immortelle was coined because the flower does not wither. Immortelle essential oil has a woody, herbal, and spicy aroma, perfect for creating an ethereal, fairy-tale like ambiance. The fragrance is warm with green notes of wood, spices, dried fruit, and herb. It is an interesting oil because it is made up of several layers of notes that appear to unfold as it evaporates. Perfumers use immortelle to give a flowery sweetness to fragrances.
Quality Assured: Our organic immortelle essential oil is responsibly sourced from France. The essential oil is steam distilled from the helichrysum flower. Every batch of oil is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and produced without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Additionally, our expert aromatherapists here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally assess all of our oils—using touch, taste, smell, and lab analyses—to ensure that your essential oil is suitable for use and entirely free of adulterants.
