A native to the Mediterranean, the golden yellow flower heads of the Helichrysum italicum are collected for medical use. The name is derived from the Greek: ‘helios’ meaning sun, and ‘chrysos’ meaning gold. Helichrysum has a branched stem, silver-green scented leaves, and dark yellow daisy-like flowers, which become dry as the plant matures, yet retain their color. Helichrysum can be used in soap making, crafts, potpourri. It is perfect for wedding and home decor and more.
