Organic Lavender Essential Oil


What does this mean?

Inci:Lavandula angustifolia Herb Oil

A rich, floral, characteristic fragrance that is very rounded, sweet, green and more fruity than other lavenders. The terms High Altitude Lavender, High Elevation Lavender and Lavender Fine Population, all refer to the same thing.


The lavender has been grown at high altitude and when such plants are grown above 1400 meters, the plant produces more esters which give the oil a more fruity aroma.
If the oil is also distilled at high altitude, there is a lower air pressure so a lower temperature can be used and therefore more of the very volatile chemicals come through from the plant to the oil.
A thin, colourless to pale yellow oil obtained by steam distillation of the fresh flowering tops of the Lavender plant. It is more than worth all the effort as this is a superb oil.
According to the Cosmetic Ingredient Database (CosIng), the functions of Lavender Essential Oil are:Masking, Tonic.

Aromatherapy Uses
Traditionally used by qualified aromatherapists when you need to work with the psychology of the ailment rather than the physical observations.
The high altitude Lavender seems to work better on the subtle energies and emotional aspects of a problem.
Historical Information
It was Rene-Maurice Gattefosse who observed the healing effects of Lavender oil when he burnt his hand in a laboratory accident and plunged his hand into a bowl of Lavender oil.
This not only cooled the burn but took the pain away and his hand healed faster without blistering or scarring.
The Ancient Romans did their washing of clothes in the river and the sheets and togas would be thrown over lavender bushes growing nearby to keep them out of the mud and to let the air circulate.
The aroma would penetrate the sheets and keep away insects and moths as well as give a good night’s sleep.
The word “lavender” comes from the Latin “lavera” which means to wash and is also the origin of the word “laundry”.
In Medieval times it was used as a strewing herb on the floor as it released a wonderful fragrance when walked on and also repelled household pests.
