Lavender has been used and cherished for centuries for its unmistakable aroma and myriad benefits. In ancient times, the Egyptians and Romans used Lavender for bathing, relaxation, cooking, and as a perfume. Its calming and relaxing qualities continue to be Lavender’s most notable attributes.
Applied topically, Lavender has been used to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections. It has also been added to bath water to soak away stress, or applied to the temples and the back of the neck. Adding a few drops of Lavender to pillows, bedding, or bottoms of feet is said to be relaxing and to help prepare for a restful night’s sleep. Due to Lavender’s versatile properties, it is considered the must-have oil to have on hand at all times.

All oils are tested for purity and subjected to rigorous quality control standards. Organic oils are derived from plants that are not grown using pesticides, fertilizers or other chemicals.
Please note that essential oils, while delightful, versatile and generally wonderful, are also very concentrated and contain active ingredients. They should not be ingested, be kept out of the reach of children and animals and diluted before use. Some have specific contraindications, and some should be avoided during pregnacy.
