African Helichrysum Essential Oil (Helichrysum Odoratissimum) (or Imphepho) is derived from the Greek word “helios” meaning sun and “chrysos” meaning gold, referring to the colour of the flowers in this genus. It is traditional used in African Medicine to support relation, sleep and dreaming, as well as during meditative trances, but has many other medicinal uses.
