Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender Essential Oil

(Lavendula angustifolia) / Main Effects: Soothing, Calming, Relaxing

Lavender is used in aromatherapy primarily for creating a calm, relaxing space.  In a 2005 study by Fields, we see this;  "Lavender increased beta wave power, elevated feelings of relaxation, reduced feelings of depression, and improved both speed and accuracy in cognitive tasks." Wow! Lavender is literally the most popular scent in the world, but not all lavenders are created equally. Our French lavender is the one lavender in the whole world that we have selected to offer. Its scent is amazingly clear, uplifting, and its soothing purity is unsurpassed.

Our lavender was selected by Natural Health Magazine as their lavender of choice (Feb. 2009) and it is a favorite of our customers for reducing stress and tension headaches by applying to the temples.  Topically, lavender oils has also been used to help heal burns, sunburns, and some infected wounds.
