Lavender is one of our most adored essential oils because it works. Just like the flowering tops of the Lavandula officinalis unravel tendrils of molecules to release their sweet essence, you will feel the unravelling of tension and apprehension upon inhalation of this fundamental essential oil. Our pure, organic Lavender Essential Oil is steam distilled to draw out its natural, calming essence and heavenly scent. Drop a few beads in your bath to melt the day away or dab some oil on your neck and wrists for a calming perfume. This skincare superhero softens and silkifies the appearance of scars, spots, and skin texture.
The use of Lavender as a massage oil dates back to ancient Egypt. Kings were buried with jars filled with lavender, while queens doused themselves in the perfume of this languid aroma. The ancient Greeks anointed their feet and breasts with lavender essential oil's leisurely scent. Lords and ladies of the Medieval English court put a drop of Lavender in their tea to calm a busy mind, and the French have been sweetening their skin with Lavender Essential Oil since the 16th century. Europeans enjoy employing lavender to linens before bed baths; a few drops of Lavender in a steaming hot bath will whisk you away to cloud nine faster than you can say "Ahhhhh."
"There's a few things I've learned in life: always throw salt over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant lavender for good luck, and fall in love whenever you can."
