Lavender 40/42 Lavandula officinalus - France
Essential Oil - 5mL
This Lavender essential oil is obtained by the steam distillation of flower heads. Lavender oil is one of the ‘must have’ essential oils if you are starting out exploring aromatherapy and essential oils. Lavender essential oil blends well with just about any other oil, just like Grapefruit EO, and is said to round out mixtures of very different oils and harmonize them. It has an easily recognized fresh floral scent. Lavender essential has many beneficial uses, but has received a reputation as the best first aid for burns and stings, and some people carry it along in their first aid kit for this reason. Lavender has special significance for many older people and is a popular oil to use for aromatherapy in nursing homes, hospitals and hospices with the elderly. This oil can be applied without dilution with most individuals, although years of constant use can probably lead to sensitization.
