A relative newcomer to the world of essential oils. The first known distillation and extraction of the oil was in Dalmatia in 1908. The plant itself has dark yellow flowers, with silver and green pepper scented leaves. Extraction occurs from the “everlasting” flowers, which are a common flower used in floral arrangements in Europe.
Also referred to as Italian Everlasting or French Immortelle.
Extensive studies have been conducted by Dr. Penoel on Immortelle healing properties associated with the skin.
