Major notes

Our Helichrysum comes from the heart of Bulgaria, where we’ve found the kindest family committed to quality essential oils and botanical extraction. You can feel the love and heart that goes into the cultivation of the unsprayed and organic plants distilled by our Bulgarian suppliers in our pristine Helichrysum oil.

Helichrysum is one of Mother Nature’s most anti-inflammatory plant allies on the essential oil market. We source premium grade Helichrysum italicum, which is well-documented as conferring powerful anti-inflammatory qualities.  The aroma, vitality and therapeutic application of this Helichrysum extract speaks to the integrity of the family enterprise tending to the land where this precious botanical has been grown.

Cultivated for over three thousand years, Mandarins are associated with wealth and prosperity and have been used for millennia in Chinese medicine. This highly sweet and aromatic citrus nectar has been cold-pressed from the zest of organic Mandarins sustainably grown and steam distilled, producing the purest possible botanical extract.

Used in Mediterranean cultures as a natural remedy and potent perfume, our Blue Tansy essential oil is produced using organic plant material cultivated in Morocco.  Blue Tansy essential oil presents an eye-catching dark blue hue when fresh, as a result from the blue pigmented chamazulene.

Interestingly, chamazulene is not naturally found in the plant material.  During the distillation process, cooperative components come together to alchemize the blue-hued molecule into existence.

Treasured throughout history, Frankincense has long created a line of communication between East and West.

Our American distiller specializes in a high-grade selection of Frankincense resins; Boswellia Sacra from Oman is often referred to as the finest quality Frankincense on the planet.  The wildcrafted Frankincense is selected and personally imported from a sustainable collective in Oman to produce this pure and potent oil.

This Frankincense oil is produced in small batches and typically takes several months to produce enough precious Frankincense Sacra oil to craft and create with. What we've learned is that the Oman Frankincense Sacra oil typically benefits from a short maturation process of about 30-90 days for its high-note character. This Frankincense Sacra oil is uplifting, vitalizing, cleansing and mood enhancing, with several aromatic layers to inspire the senses. 

All our ingredients are organic or wildcrafted, and each one has a story. Visit our glossary to learn more.

    Long lasting scent

    Great quality, not just in its aromatic depth, but also in how long-lasting and consistent the scent remains. Helios has become a staple in my relaxation routine, and I can't recommend it highly enough for anyone seeking a premium sensory experience.

    Delight to the senses

    High quality oil. A lot of care has been taken in creating Helios, from the bottle to the depth and combination of scents. I have worked with essential oils for many years, trying many brands, Helios by Sayu is a stand out oil for me. Well done Sayu.
