Botanical Characteristics

  • Scientific Name : Helichrysum italicum
  • Family : Asteraceae
  • Origin : Mediterranean regions

 

 

Description

 

Italian Helichrysum, also known as everlasting, is an evergreen aromatic shrub of the Asteraceae family. It is distinguished by its silver, linear, and leathery leaves, as well as its small yellow flowers that never completely fade, hence the nickname "everlasting".

 

 

 

Climate and Cultivation

  • Italian Helichrysum thrives in a dry, sunny Mediterranean climate.
  • It prefers well-drained soil and withstands arid conditions well.

In Mythology

 

Helichrysum, also known as immortelle, gets its name from its flowers, which retain their appearance and color even after being dried, hence the term "everlasting". Apollo was depicted with a crown of helichrysum, reminding both of his immortality and his beauty. Helichrysum was already used by the Greeks for its beauty-related virtues in beauty products, balms, or perfumes. In Homer's Odyssey, Ulysses meets Nausicaa, a woman whose beauty secret is Italian helichrysum oil.
