Lavender essential oil is a thin, colourless to pale yellow oil extracted via steam distillation of the fresh flowering tops of the lavender plant. Perhaps the most popular essential oil of all, this much-loved natural ingredient is favoured for its calming effects. It also benefits from having several skin and hair-boosting properties.
Our organic lavender essential oil is sourced from lavender grown at high altitudes. When such plants are grown above 1,400 metres, they produce more esters, increasing the oil’s relaxing properties. If the oil is also distilled at a high altitude, the reduced air pressure allows a lower temperature to be used. This means more compounds come through from the plant to the oil for a much finer aroma.
Lavender is associated with feelings of calmness and relaxation. This pure essential oil calms the mind and provides a therapeutic experience when used in massage, aromatherapy or topical skincare products. Use it in night creams to prepare for a peaceful night’s sleep, or diffuse this floral scent in your home to help you unwind in the evening.
Use with caution during pregnancy as overuse could be too stimulating.
The Cosmetic Ingredient Database (CosIng) lists lavender essential oil’s functions as “fragrance” and “tonic”.
