Helichrysum is a relative of the daisy and its name is derived from the Greek: helios meaning sun, and chrysos meaning gold. The golden yellow flower heads of the helichrysum are collected before they open for herbal use to make aromatic, spicy, and slightly bitter teas. It has been used as an aphrodisiac, as a food, and is growing in popularity as a healing essential oil because of its healing agents. Helichrysum certainly holds its own place in skin care formulations and is widely used in facial creams for anti-aging, and for wound/scar and stretch mark treatments.
