  • During hard times, periods of mourning or unpleasant moments, Helichrysum helps and supports impressively. It is, therefore, often called the aromatherapeutic Rescue remedy or Arnica. 
    Carry the bottle with you and when you feel you are about to go down, take it out, smell the oil and rub a few drops where you feel the sadness. You may only understand how powerful it is after you've experienced it. 
The marvellous thing with Helichrysum is that even dead, it is still alive!
Indeed, that's the reason why it is often found on graves. It keeps its bright yellow colour, it remains compact, its leaves stay on when it dries up. Besides, its name means the same in many languages: "Immortelle" (immortal in French), "Semperviva del monte" (the everlasting from the mountains, in Spanish).
It is also called "Curryplant" in other languages: Kerrieplant in Dutch, Karryplante in Danish, Currykraut in German... because, yes, it does smell of curry. It only takes you to rub a leaf to smell it. However, it is absolutely not part of the recipe of curry.
Its Latin name, which we use in English, comes from the Greek "helios" (sun) and "chrysos" (gold). Probably due to its colour...
Helichrysum italicum is an ateracea. Its flowers are capitules made of many florets, which gives the impression of a flower full of tube-shaped holes. These yellow capitules are grouped in racemes. At first, a novice could mistake it with an apiacea (umbelliferous), but the petioles have different starting points on the stem. 
It has little thin leaves (with parallel edges). Edges are wound downwards. The top of the leaves are hairy, very hairy, with short and rather transparent hair which confers the plant its silvery glow.
