Highly scented Lavender has a distinctly sweet floral-spice aroma that's a little wild and woody. Lavender smells like the color blue to me! I think of the Blue Bird of Happiness when I inhale its lovely and intoxicating scent.
Distilling at high altitude allows lower temperatures and lower pressure for distillation making it possible for the volatile phytochemicals to come through intact in the final product.
A universal first aid healing oil! Lavender's pure and clean scent is well known. Every home and office should consider keeping a bottle of it on hand!
Lavender is the most commonly used essential oil and the absolute classic oil for treating burns!
During the early 20th century, French chemist Rene-Maurice Gattefosse became interested in the use of essential oils for their medicinal properties. While working Gattefosse accidentally burned his arm very badly!
On reflex Gattefosse plunged his burned arm into a large vat of lavender oil. His burn healed rapidly and there was absolutely NO scarring of tissue!
Gattefosse is credited with coining the term "aromatherapy" in his 1928 article supporting the use of essential oils in their whole, pure and unadulterated state.
Apply Lavender immediately to burns to prevent blistering, or scarring, as well as speed healing of wounds as it stimulates cellular repair and regeneration.
Lavender was first cultivated in the high mountains of Persia and southern France.
A hearty and robust plant Lavender thrives in barren environments that sharply contrast to its natural power for producing healing energy.
Lavender's gentle nourishing and healing effect on the body, mind, spirit and emotions comes from its notable ability to harmonize and stabilize the entire human energy system, or Chakras.
Excellent for balancing hyper emotional states such as shock, anger, impatience and irritability.
Lavender helps dispel the negative mental states of fear & worry.
Supports self growth and development of inner freedom from compulsion and clinging to one's desires.
