English Lavender essential oil is the concentrated liquid containing volatile aroma compounds steam distilled from the lavender plant. Lavender has been used for centuries to help heal various ailments from minor cuts, bruises and burns to chronic diseases like rheumatism, asthma and dermatitis.
This essential oil, like most others, is usually used mixed with a base or carrier oil such as almond or apricot kernel, unless it is for your bath, when you can simply add a few drops in your bath water. Use this oil for a pleasant, fresh, sweet and slightly fruity floral fragrance with an oil burner or vaporiser. In aromatherapy, it is often used to combat depression, stress, fatigue and insomnia. It can be used in a carrier oil to massage and relax muscles and aching bones and works well to prepare the body and mind for sleep.
