Lavender Spike Essential Oil
Spike lavender has a significantly deeper aroma to traditional lavender essential oils. It contains higher levels of Eucalyptol and camphor, giving it a more intense scent, which make it an excellent decongestant for those with respiratory conditions. It is also reported to have more effective pain relieving qualities than other strains of lavender.
The lavender family as a whole 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.
Reportedly used in France for centuries either as a throat soothing drink or a wound-healing balm, lavender spike, or ‘lavande aspic’, gets its name from its anti-venomous properties championed by French hunters who would rub the lavender on snake bites.
These days it is considered a helpful holiday companion to aid insect stings, bites, and minor burns, as well as having anti-septic, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
