Everlasting flower is a herbaceous perennial plant native to Europe, Central Asia, and China. It gets its name from the fact that when dried, this herb can be preserved for a very long duration of time.
Everlasting flower is often used for cake decorations, herbal teas, as well as essential oil extraction. It has a long history of use in European ethnomedicine as a medicinal plant which is attributed to cholagogue, choleretic, hepatoprotective, and detoxifying activities.
Everlasting flower has a syrupy note, with its fragrance similar to hay, fresh thyme and tobacco.
