BULGARIA. Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia) Essential Oil, Certified Organic, Steam Distilled
Lavender has been called “the Swiss Army knife of essential oils” because it has so many uses! Therapeutic grade! Great for body care products and aromatherapy uses, this lovely scent is a definite favorite. Unlike many essential oils, Lavender can be applied to the skin without dilution. It is considered a middle to top note for blending purposes.
Lavender’s grounding effect has made it a standby remedy for faintness and insomnia; it can also help with muscle tension, spasms, and migraines. In addition to its well-known benefits for the nervous system, combating depression and anxiety, and improving memory and performance, it is antimicrobial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory, and repels many insects, including head lice and dust mites.
Lavender is simply an amazing resource for your medicine kit!
Our essential oils are sold in amber glass bottles with a dropper orifice for drop-by-drop administration. Do not ingest essential oils unless under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner or experienced aromatherapist. Essential oils are best diluted in a carrier oil before being applied to the skin. (Some examples of carrier oils: Jojoba, Sunflower, Grapeseed, Rosehip Seed, Castor, and Avocado; gently liquified Coconut Oil, Shea, or Cocoa Butter can also work for creating thicker body care products.) Always test the diluted essential oil on a small patch of skin before applying more widely.
While Lavender is considered by many to be an exception to the rule that essential oils should always be applied in diluted form, some sources recommend a maximum dilution strength of up to 25% (25 drops per teaspoon of carrier oil) for topical use.
