Lavender Fields

Lavender oil is the most popular essential oil in the world. This ancient plant oil is believed to have the health benefits which include the ability to assist with nervous tension, pain relief, help disinfect the scalp and skin, enhance blood circulation and assist in treating respiratory problems. The Latin name of lavender is Lavare, which means “to wash”, due to its aroma which has a particularly clean aroma.

Lavender oil is extracted mostly from the flowers of the lavender plant, primarily through steam distillation. The flowers of lavender are fragrant in nature and have been used for making potpourri for centuries. Traditionally, lavender essential oil has also been used in making perfumes and shampoos to help wash and purify the skin. The oil is very useful in aromatherapy and many aromatic preparations and combinations are made using lavender oil.

As the world looks back to methods of natural well-being support practices that were passed down through generations since the time of the ancient Egyptians and Romans science started to evaluate the health benefits that lavender essential oil contains.
