Helichrysum Italicum Oil (aromatherapy)

Helichrysum Oil is a pale yellow, oily liquid of powerful and diffusive, but pleasant and rich, natural odor. The topnote has certain features in common with those of the extracted material (everlasting absolute), and these topnotes are not exactly attractive at high concentration. The sweetness is so rich and overwhelming, honeylike and deep, that it takes more than the average of imagination to appreciate the odor of this oil. However, the sweet-fruity and tealike, delicate undertone is unique, and the tenacity is quite outstanding.
