We have been sourcing this Helichrysum oil from our trusted supplier in Bosnia and Herzegovina for many years. Everlasting or Helichrysum italicum is the ‘active ingredient’ in many high-priced skin care products; its notorious cell regenerating qualities benefit the skin, the liver and actually the whole person. Helichrysum has shown to be effective in the healing of old scars and keloids as well as in preventive and curative treatments for mature skin. As the quantities of Corsican Helichrysum have dwindled, prices for oils from Bosnia and Herzegovina have been pushed upwards by large corporate buyers. As far as therapeutic efficacy, the Bosnian oils stand up to the Corsican distillates. While there may be therapists who have developed a special relationship with the Corsican oils and hence have their best results with this origin, the Bosnian oils have a higher diketone content and are especially suitable for wound and scar healing. Diketones are the components largely responsible for the antioxidant and tissue protective qualities of Helichrysum italicum essential oil. The above image shows a cluster of wild Helichrysum plants on a typical Bosnian hillside; it illustrates how the plant occurs in the wild and how tedious the harvesting must be. In early summer collectors are everywhere on these hillsides, mostly cutting the wild plants for corporate buyers. It is consoling that there is more and more successful cultivation of Helichrysum in Bosnia and Herzegovina, ultimately easing the pressure on the wild plants.
