The following summary is given for information purposes: it is a synthesis of the properties described in recognised aromatherapy books and/or in accordance with ancestral and popular traditions. The properties* presented are taken from the book ‘Aromathérapie Corps et Ame’ by André Bitsas, published by Amyris. It is in no way a medical information or a list of indications.
Botanists present the Asteraceae as one of the most advanced families in the plant kingdom. Their essential oil is a major confirmation! This plant with yellow flowers is found in certain privileged places in the Mediterranean basin: Corsica, Sardinia but also the Balkans. It is composed of esters, diones (molecules related to ketones), sesquiterpenes, monoterpenols, oxides, etc. The proportion of diones (ideally around 10%) and esters must be significant. To date, only the Corsican origin remains optimal in this respect. And that is what we propose.
Property that distinguishes it from all others: Immortelle essential oil stimulates blood flow and is anticoagulant. It is remarkably effective on haematomas ("bruises"), even old and internal ones. Any treatment of varicose veins and heavy legs includes helichrysum in its composition. The same applies to any treatment of couperose. Because of its high ester content, helichrysum is also antispasmodic.
The aroma is sweet, lively and intense. Immortelle essential oil has an intense psychological effect, capable of stimulating intuition, imagination and creativity, and inspiring dreams and musings. Comforting and airy, it can be said to soothe the "blues of the soul". Immortal, it is certainly so despite its appearance of fragility.
