Lavender Essential Oil 10 ml
Lavender is the most popular and versatile of essential oils, and for good reason: not only is it remarkably gentle and effective, but it has an almost universally beloved aroma - floral, soft, and herbaceous.
It is relaxing and refreshing, uplifts the spirits, and helps to relieve the distress of muscle pain. This lavender in particular is high in Linalyl Acetate, which gives it outstanding calming properties.
Lavender oil has a long history of use; the name coming from the latin word 'lavere', which means 'to wash', because the Romans added Lavender to their bath water.
It is the essential oil made famous by Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, who treated a bad burn with lavender oil. He was intrigued that the burn healed without the usual blistering or scarring, and became interested in the healing power of essential oils.
His studies led to the publication of the book Aromatherapie, and also popularized the term Aromatherapy for the study of essential oils.
Lavender is now cultivated all over the world, including France, Russia, Bulgaria, the Himalayas and Croatia.
This is one essential oil that everyone should have on hand at all times!
