Helichrysum italicum – a healing plant
You will also have the opportunity to get acquainted with the special helichrysum flower (also called immortelle or curry plant) with its medicinal properties.
Nearly 800 helichrysum plants from Corsica have been planted and share the nut terraces with the olive trees.
Helichrysum italicum or the “eternal” flower has been used since ancient times because of its medicinal virtues. Today, it continues to play an important role in traditional medicine in the Mediterranean countries.
Its flowers and leaves have a special smell of “curry plant” and are used as a traditional food aroma, but beyond that as a rare ingredient in perfume.
When dried, the flowers retain their “immortal” sun-yellow color. They are traditionally used as an infusion to combat symptoms such as colds, sleep disorders and joint and digestive problems.
“Helichrysum italicum” flowers are grown in the olive grove among the organic olive trees without fertilizer or treatment. They are not irrigated and therefore produce significantly more essential oils and active components.Marianne et Jean-Marie warmly welcomes you to the Domaine de la Royrie.
