Product Abstract: Helichrysum has silvery gray, grassy foliage with a collection of golden flowers that blossom in midsummer. Helichrysum italicum grows wild in Mediterranean regions with dry, high altitudes receiving a lot of sun exposure. Also known as Immortelle or Everlasting, its name is derived from the Greek word helios meaning 'sun' and chrysos meaning 'gold'. This is a reference to the golden color of many of the flowers from this botanical genus, whose colour last long after they have been picked and dried. Helichrysum has been used since the time of the ancient Greeks, who often used it after battles.

This oil is pricey - but oh so worth it. It is my absolute favourite at this time. I use it in a face serum with apricot kernel oil and it is wonderful. I also apply it neat to an excema patch on my leg and it takes away the itch very effectively. I have also used it on a cold sore on my lip and it dried up and became pain free within 12 hours. I have also used this oil in an excema salve and the smell is so wonderful.

I found this to smell nothing like the other reviews stated. Maybe I got a bad batch. Didn't seem to do nothing for me. I found geranium and lavender to work much better when it comes to skin and wintergreen for pain and they don't remotely cost as much.

This smells like those Valentines Day peppermint heart candies. It is an amazing acne killer, even better than Tee Tree. After application the pimples dry up and form a scab. After 12 hours the scab falls off and your skin goes back to normal. It also fades pimple scars better than vitamin C. It makes an awesome spot treatment. I used it on an Actinic keratoses mark on my leg that has been there for a few years and within two days the redness faded to a light pink. Definitely worth the money I paid for it.

Even though this EO is very expensive, I bought a 5ml sample to try for its theraputic properties! I blend it with other EOs and carrier oil from ND as a message oil for postherpetic neuralgia and was very happy with the result! Another great product from ND! Hope the price can come down a bit in the future so that it will be more affordable!

In early April, 2014, I ordered a sample bottle of Slovenian Helichrysum Italicum after confirming Beta-Diketone (Italidiones I, II and III) content. Italidiones are only found in the Italicum of the Helichrysum species (hence the same root word), I am pleased that NDA has now listed the presence of Italidiones on the MSDS sheet. After performing extensive research, I believe that this is the most important constituent to this EO's unique therapeutic properties.

..... I called NDA to confirm the quantity range in this particular batch because I wanted to ensure I was going to receive the same quality as an Italicum from Corsica, France. Well, let me tell you, the Helichrysum Italicum that NDA sourced out meets / exceeds that of the Corsican Helichrysum Italicum...... .. In this particular batch (April 2014 order), Italidiones I = 4.8%, Italidione II (including Beta-Selinene) = 7.8% and Italidione III = 1.4%. Therefore total Italidione content is 14%!!! Anything around 10% total or more is excellent in my opinion.

I must let NDA know that the word Italidione is mispelled in your MSDS sheet. This should be corrected, I would request that the total Italidione % range be listed in the "Main Constituents" listing (on this web page) because you should be bragging about this! I would also include the range percentage ot individual Italidione content in the MSDS sheet too. Obviously, this is a deal-breaker for me.

Helichrysum Italicum is my most precious essential oil and I have a lot of them now! So many uses with unbelievable results! A must buy, even if it costs $42.11 for 5ml (versus the $28 it cost before market price increased). Thanks NDA for your response re: price hike due to supply shortages.

I ordered a 5ml bottle of this Slovenian Helichrysum to try out and have used it up already in oil blends for sprains & strains with arnica oil. I think that this oil is a "must have" and is now going to be a staple ingredient for me because of the oil's remarkably broad therapeutic properties. When you are in severe pain the value of this oil is simply priceless, so I will try to close my eyes to the price!

Since this EO (Helichrysum Italicum) was restocked, the price has increased by 50%! That is a massive jump in price. It went from $28/ 5ml to $42/ 5ml, instantly! I am very upset at this massive increase in price. In my previous review, I mentioned how MLM (Multi-Level Marktleting) company was selling this for 4 times the price (when it was $28 here on NDA). This was not a tip-off for NDA to increase their price. Quite frankly, these MLM companies charge 4 - 10 times the price of NDA typically, across the board..... But that is what MLM companies do. If NDA's Supplier for Slovenian Helichrysum Italicum jumped 50% overnight, then perhaps a different supplier should be sought out. I am very angry at this huge hike. I do my "homework" and I am suspicious that NDA raised their price to increase their profit margin, shortly after I posted how good their price was (2 reviews below)

New Directions Aromatics Response:

Please note that the reason the price has gone up is because of a severe shortage in the market. The market price has gone up (doubled) and it is very high now. We always negotiate very hard to get the very best prices and pass those savings to our customers. All our pricing is based on the purchase prices. Our intention is never to gouge our customers but please realize that the markets determine the pricing.

I cannot wait to try NDA's Helichrysum Italicum!!! I am finishing one by a MLM company that costs 4 times as much!! I know that NDA carries therapeutic grade EO's. This EO is my most valuable out of my collection. Apparently, it is a cell regenerator (even "nerves"). I have also read that it can improve hearing loss. I cannot confirm these properties yet, but looks promising. In addition, I use this oil with Raindrop Massage technique (along spine) and reflexology-style to assist with helping with one's sense of balance in NDA's Fractionated Coconut oil Carrier Oil to further help penetrate. Seems to be working!!! The chemotype "Beta Diketone" is what drew me to its regenerating properties. This constituent is the very tiny yet significant component that makes Helichryum Italicum priceless to me... (Not typically listed in MSDS sheets since it makes up _0.3% or so of this EO...although I think it should be). And it is anti-aging!!! (Hello cell regeneration!!!). I love you, Immortelle!!! This is my love story to you!!!!

I bought this EO after reading about treatments for psoriasis and now I can't do without it. I mixed this with Roman Chamomile, Lavender and Tea Tree in a Coconut Fractionated Oil base and the woman using it is amazed. Although the psoriasis is not gone, she was ecstatic when she told me that she is not itchy and it feels so much better. She applies it 3 times a day, while at work, and has only been using the blend for 2 weeks. She told me, "You can never run out of the oil blend, I HAVE TO HAVE IT"....I think I created a junky...lol. Thank you so much ND for providing this EO.

I have read much information about the EO Helichrysum and the importance of making sure it is a very high quality oil to be able to get the results required. I ordered the Helichrysum italicum from New Directions for a bad case of dry, cracking and itching eczema on the hands. I mixed it with German Chamomile in a base of fractionated coconut oil and made sure it was applied a number of times daily. The results have been amazing!! The healing and improvement was noticable overnight and will soon be gone completely. It is an excellent quality essential oil and I am so very pleased with the results of this case and would highly recommend the use of this oil.
