Lavender essential oil produces a soothing scent excellent at calming our nerves. Used commonly for relaxation and during sleep, Lavender essential oil restores peace, tranquility and is excellent at easing any trauma of change.
Extracted from a type of Lavender plant known as Lavendula Angustifolia x Latifola, this plant is a hybrid between Lavandula angustifolia (True Lavender) and Lavandula latifolia (Spike lavender). Lavender essential oil produced from steam distillation and has a clear and light pale yellow color. It is more camphoraceous, and hence gives a strong and penetrating scent compared to True Lavender essential oil.
