Can you help identify / name these two plants?

Is there anyone who could help me identify these plants from our smallholding near Swellendam?

The grey foliage plant was apparently used to stuff mattresses in days of yore, and has the most divine smell.  It is also apparently insect (bed bug? LOL) repellent.

And the prickly bunny tail causes a rash on my legs – a non-itchy, and non-irritating but unsightly rash.

Thanks

Dani

First one: Helichrysum odoratissimum (kooigoed) (?)
Latter: Looks like a species of grass, but need to post picture of whole plant.
