Habitat: Lavender is a shrubby plant indigenous to the mountainous regions of the countries bordering the western half of the Mediterranean and cultivated extensively for its aromatic flowers in various parts of France, in Italy and in England and even as far north as Norway. It is also now being grown as a perfume plant in Australia.
Aroma: Lavender Essential Oil smells floral, fresh, sweet, herbaceous and sometimes slightly fruity. The fine aromatic smell is found in all parts of the shrub, but the essential oil is only produced from the flowers and flower-stalks. Lavender Essential Oil is a floral, but men can love the aroma, especially when combined with other oils. For men's blends, try combining Lavender Essential Oil with oils from the citrus, mint and conifer families.
Affinities: Lavender Essential Oil is well known for its sedative properties and for its ability to help calm stress and anxiety and to help promote sleep. It is anti-bacterial and is a must-have for your first-aid kit. Its calming and sedative properties make Lavender Essential Oil a wonderful oil to help you relax, fight stress and to promote sleep. When properly diluted, it's amongst the safest of essential oils.
Folklore: The Egyptians were the first to make perfume from lavender and used it for mummification. The urns in the tomb of Tutankhamen were found to be filled with its fragrance. Lavender was also made in solid cones and placed on the heads of the wealthy. It is said that Cleopatra used lavender perfumes to seduce Julius Caesar and Mark Antony.
Words of wisdom: Although Lavender Oil is considered one of the safest essential oils, you should discontinue use is you have any allergic reactions. Do not take any oils internally and do not apply undiluted essential oils or other concentrated essences onto the skin without advanced essential oil knowledge or consultation from a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Use caution when using oils with children and pets. Consult a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before using oils with children, the elderly, during pregnancy, or if you have medical issues or are taking medications.
