Helichrysum Angustifolium also is known as Italicum. It is used for cuts, bruises, grazes, stress and anxiety.

Helichrysum italicum and angustifolium essential oils generally have a warm, earthy, slightly sweet middle to base note aroma and are valuable additions to wound-healing applications and after-trauma support. Their antimicrobial properties further assist with wound-related applications.
Helichrysum is a small, flowering Daisy family plant that produces little yellow flowers. It is sometimes also called Immortelle, Everlasting, Curry Plant (not the same as Curry leaf) and Life Everlasting. Helichrysum species grow in so many different parts of the world (France, Croatia, Madagascar, South Africa, the US, etc.) with varying growing conditions and climates, so their therapeutic properties can vary quite a bit based on the species and where it was grown. To keep things simple, I like to think of Helichrysum essential oils as being separated into two main teams: the wound healers and the breathe easy-ers.
