This is our classic Corsican Helichrysum essential oil, proprietarily and naturally aged at Ananda Apothecary to improve its aromatic and therapeutic properties. The distiller will always let Helichrysum essential oil “air out” before sending it to us. With continued aging, we have found that it has even GREATER potential to reach it’s aromatic and therapeutic peak. When you try this ‘Special Aged,’ you’ll know it has! Very highly recommended!
See the Helichrysum (Corsica) page for general information about this oil. This particular batch has been aged (some oils DO get better with age, and this is one of them!) using a certifiable-organic process, improving its aroma and chemical profile.

The "honey" notes often used to describe Corsican Helichrysum are notably present (whereas while still completely therapeutic, the aroma of a very fresh oil is not as smooth and sweet ~ yet we also very pleased to say the 2016 distillation we have recently received is in fact very smooth, though you can distinctly tell the difference. The 'Special Aged' oil has the finest Helichrysum aroma we've every, ever tried - and our owner is a Helichrysum fanatic ;-)
After years of being a professional athlete, always looking for something that would support healing of sports injuries, it was only much later that he found the magic of Corsican Helichrysum. And we're happy to be the only essential oil company on the planet that's actually improving those few oils that do better with age just a little faster - we've had it approved by Ecocert (while this is a wildgrown, not certified organic essential oil, we use the same process for our organic 'special aged' Cedarwoods - and they, too, smell incredible). This is a very highly-recommended oil!
