Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender is a timeless classic in the world of essential oils – with a deeply relaxing effect as well as many other pain-relieving, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities, lavender has been used for medicinal purposes for more than 2500 years.
Lavender comes from the ancient Latin word ‘lavare’ which means ‘to wash’ as the Romans and other ancient civilizations are reported to have used lavender in personal grooming and when cleaning their clothes and homes. It continues to this day to be used in cleaning products and is a smell reminiscent with freshness and calm.
As well as having relaxing effects and a positive, calming mental influence, it is also suggested that lavender can be used topically on minor burns and insect bites.
Lavender is also used in the unique Kotanical oil blend for the UNWIND and FLOW rollerballs, in the floral essential oil diffuser blend, and in a number of essential oil diffuser bundles including the luxury sleep bundle.
