Lavander, New Zealand Essential Oil
100% PURE, THERAPEUTIC GRADE ESSENTIAL OIL
COMMON NAME Lavender, New Zealand Lavender, True Lavender
BOTANICAL NAME Lavandula angustifolia

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN New Zealand
 
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.

This is the most heavenly lavender essential oil!! I find it to be richer, sweeter, more mellow and less camphoraceous than other lavandula angustifolia oils. Perfect for calming uses like bedtime or stress relief. I just want to keep smelling it! My kids love it too. Good ol' NZ creates another winner!!

not sure what to make of this oil. Very potent, unlike any other store bought brands.

I believe it will need to be combined with a carrier oil to be enjoyed.
