According to healthline, Helichrysum oil (aka helichrysum italicum, everlasting flower oil or immortelle oil) contains an anti-inflammatory substance called arzanol, which plays a part in healing wounds. It also has antioxidant properties that can help to prevent scarring by regenerating new cells and preventing the accumulation of free radicals. This oil is also said to relieve skin rashes.
However, these claims have not been proven in any scientific study.
Helichrysum oil may also be used for its fragrant properties.
