Perhaps the most well known and popular of all the essential oils, and for good reason - Lavender has been used for thousands of years for its healing, antiseptic and sedative properties.

Lavender oil likely sparked modern interest in therapeutic essential oils after the ‘father of aromatherapy’, René-Maurice Gattefossé, attributed the healing of his hand from gas gangrene to Lavender. He went on to successfully use it in on wounded soldiers in the First World War.

Mainstay in the essential oil collection

I use lavender EO in so many of my products, it's a beautiful fresh, clean scent that combines well with any other essential oil. It's a firm favourite!

Lavandula Angustifolia

I am not usually a fan of 40/42 or even 38/40 but i need a less expensive lavender for blending and this works beautifully. Tried using it alone in home diffuser and the fragrance has reasonable strength and lasting power.
