What is helichrysum?
Italicum Helichrysum, also named Everlasting, is a species of blooming plant of the Asteraceae family. It grows as a little bush of 40 to 60 cm height. It blooms in a sunny yellow shape from the beginning of June till July. Our helichrysum has a diversity of smells close to the wild one. In the field, each plant is unique as it comes from a different seed. In a plot of half an hectare we grow 6000 plants. Each plant grows at a different rate, develops a unique perfume and produces a different quality of essential oil. All of this permits to have a delicate perfume with thousands of nuances.
The cultivation and the distillation with an organic agriculture.
Since we decided to grow aromatic plants in the region again, we have chosen to do it without pesticides. We obtained the organic certification by Ecocert for our essential oils and hydrolats. The distillation made on the farm is an important event : we adjust our work to the weather and the maturity of the everlasting to ensure the best quality oil.
The packagings chosen maintain the quality of the oil and are suitable for different uses.
Bottles are dark to protect the essential oil from the light. We use glass for the little bottles and aluminium or pvc for the bigger ones.
Bottles with a dropper are useful for all multipurpose.
Small bottles are travel friendly. Big bottles can be used as temporary stock of future refill for the small ones.
