Immortelle - Everlasting Flowers

Immortelle (Helichrysum italicum) is the symbol of longevity, resurrection, and immortality (as its name suggests). Immortelles, small flowers growing around the Mediterranean, were known in the United States and England in the nineteenth century as “everlasting” flowers. The yellow immortelle flowers shine with golden light during the flowering season under the summer sun.

When picked, the flowers neither fade nor wilt, retaining their colour and their aroma, and make them particularly suitable for dried floral arrangements. They remain popular choices for fall and winter ornamentation in England, France, the United States, and Turkey today.

In Mtyhology: In Homer’s Odyssey, wherein the hero, shipwrecked on the island of Phaecia, is given a vial of essential immortelle oil by the king’s famously beautiful daughter Nausicaa in order to hasten his recovery.
