When Odysseus asked her about the secret of her eternal beauty, she replied that it was the miraculous oil made of the immortal “Golden Sun” flower.
The Greek God Apollo wore a wreath of Immortelle flowers on his head to symbolize his immortality.

Immortelle essential oil
The legendary plant Immortelle (lat. Helichrysum Italicum) has been used for its powerful medicinal properties for thousands of years in the Mediterranean region where it grew naturally. Today, it continues to play an important role in the traditional medicine of Mediterranean countries, but its popularity is quickly spreading around the world as its powerful skin regenerating properties have been proven by scientists and phytotherapists.
Very few essential oils can boast such a broad spectrum of effective therapeutic use and antioxidant properties. Our 100% organic, ECOCERT certified Immortelle Essential Oil contains high levels of strong synergistic constituents responsible for unmatched support in tissue rebuilding and healing. Its unique chemical composition includes the potent Neryl Acetate, Neryl Propionate, γ-Curcumene, and ar-Curcumene, reputed to stimulate the skin's natural collagen production thus contributing to the effective and long lasting reduction of wrinkles. Supportive in the healing of wounds, bruises, burns and scar tissue, the Immortelle Essential Oil not only significantly enhances the beauty of the skin, but it also guarantees its health and regeneration.
The 100% ECO certified organic essential Immortelle oil used in Nausikaa cosmetic creations comes from Herzegovina. The special chemistry of the local rocky soil makes the oil from that region more beneficial than any other Helichrysum Italicum variety in the Mediterranean.
By using this oil we want to support a sustainable development project in southwest Herzegovina where the production of Immortelle and its essential oil is meant to prevent the massive population drain occurred over the recent years due to a very high rate of unemployment.
