Lavender Oil (French) 10ml
Lavender oil is the most widely used essential oil in aromatherapy, particularly for its relaxing and antiseptic properties.
The plant name is derived from the Latin ‘Lavare’ – to wash, probably from its use to cleanse wounds.
Lavender has a fresh, floral, light, sweet aroma. Also known as Clonal Lavender, this Lavender grows at low altitude in the Provence region of France. It has a lower ester content than High Altitude Lavender, giving it a slightly more pungent and earthy aroma. Lavender is a gentle oil and is the most versatile in aromatherapy.
Lavender is best known for its relaxing properties; try placing two drops on a handkerchief by your pillow at bedtime.
As Lavender blends very well with many other oils, try the following blend: 3 drops of Lavender, 3 drops of Mandarin and 1 drop of Geranium in a teaspoon of Sweet Almond oil, add to a warm bath for a long, relaxing soak.
