Helichrysum

Getting to Know the Benefits of This Powerful Plant 

Background
With a name that means ‘everlasting’ or ‘immortal’, it is no wonder people turn to helichrysum to protect their skin. A small, yellow, flowering herb that is native to the Mediterranean, and is a member of the sunflower family. Renowned for its lush and spicy scent. Even more important than the wonderful smell is the superior soothing and healing benefits of this multitasking, little plant. 

Science
Research of helichrysum is currently limited, however the scientific community is starting to pay closer attention. Preliminary studies have suggested numerous benefits. Reputed for its rich antioxidant properties, scientists have been studying the antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties of helichrysum. Reported benefits include helping to soothe dryness and irritation, softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimizing acne and blemishes, and overall assisting to rejuvenate and revitalize the complexion. 

Why We Love It
Here at Willowdale Botanicals, we are quite the fans of the humble Helichrysum. And because of that we grow our very own USDA certified organic helichrysum right here on our farm in Lewisburg, Ohio. We use the ultra-clean helichrysum in our luxuriously silky Helichrysum Nightly Renewal Cream. Along with helichrysum, this powerful moisturizer contains other proven skin saviors including elderberry extract, sea buckthorn oil, Melissa extract, white tea, ultra-softening mango seed butter, and rosehip oil. Therefore, the result is a lightweight yet deeply hydrating fluid. Rich with a targeted fusion of natural, plant-based alpha and beta carotenes filled with vitamins C, D, and E that help restore and soften your skin overnight.
