Lavender Pure Essential Oil
Lavender is a plant that needs no introduction. Lavandula angustifolia is what most people in the herbal, perfumery & aromatherapy industry refer to as “true” lavender. Its common names include lavender, true lavender or English lavender, garden lavender, common lavender, and narrow-leaved lavender. A top note of distinct fresh well-rounded Lavender with a slightly sweet mellow scent, this is the most potent & sought after of lavenders.
The Lavender plant is a woody evergreen shrub, up to one meter tall, with pale green, narrow linear leaves and violet-blue flowers. The entire plant is covered with oil glands, which are in the star-shaped hairs that cover the plant. Lavender has a long history of being used since ancient times; its name originates from the Latin lavare, ‘to wash’, as the Romans added lavender to their bathwater. Differences in soil, altitude and temperature, precipitation and seasons contribute to subtle changes in the scent from one lot of Lavender to another. This organic, pure essential oil is distilled on the Canadian West Coast by a small family owned farm. The very same lavender used in our Serene line & perfumes.
It is probably the most soothing scent a person can ever experience. Lavender works as an anxiolytic (an anxiety reliever) and as a sedative, to increase relaxation and calm, and help bring about sleep. Lavender interacts with the neurotransmitter GABA to help quiet the brain and nervous system activity, reducing agitation, anger, aggression, and restlessness. This is the very same essential oil we use in our entire Serene product line, which you can find in our “Mind” section.
Lavender flowers are known to represent purity, silence, devotion serenity, grace and calmness. In addition to the flower’s significance, its purple color also comes with great symbolism. Purple is the color of royalty and speaks of elegance, refinement and luxury.
