Wild Grown Lavender
Our Lavender – Wild is wild harvested in France, an area well-known for producing the world’s best Lavender. This beautiful oil offers a fresh floral with soft, smooth edges for an aroma reminiscent of standing in a field of the flowers in bloom.
Lavandula angustifolia is the true lavender (as opposed to spike lavender, lavandin, etc.). It is produced throughout the world, although France is considered the premier growing region, and is the source of two of our best-selling Lavender essential oils (including Wild and High Elevation).
Lavender is the most popular and most often used essential oil here in the United States. It can be blended into many formulas, and has been a part of fine fragrances for centuries. Lavender is a middle to top note and can be used as a perfume modifier; it can also help mask unpleasant aromas of oils you want to use it in aromatherapy blends.
In the world of essential oils, Lavender is one of (if not) the most commonly used due to its versatility and pleasant scent. It can be safely applied to a broad array of conditions; to soothe burns, take the sting out of insect bites, calm headaches and anxiety, as well as invigorate the senses. Lavender also makes a wonderful addition to skin care for any skin type products due to its ability to balance the skin and soothe irritation. In Ayurvedic terms, this oil has cooling and drying energy to help relax the mind, soothe tension and anxiety, ease frustration and pent-up emotions, and to evoke calmness and composure. This is one oil that should be part of everyone’s collection!

- Delicate notes from Provence Review by savingface
The ONLY other time that I found Lavender as fresh and pure as Eden Botanicals, was on a trip to an aromatherapy producer in Provence many years ago. I had forgotten the difference in the delicacy notes it produces, not like the ketone camphors that usually emit from other sources. Thank you, thank you!
