Lavender Bulgaria Essential Oil

Latin Name:Lavandula angustifolia
Country of Origin:Bulgaria
Extraction Method:Steam Distillation
Plant Part(s):Flowers

Lavender is known as the mother of all oils and is a popular choice amongst many aromatherapists, both beginners and professionals. Its benefits are quite strong and diverse, but the oil itself is one of the gentlest to use. True lavender essential oil has several countries of origin. Its scent will vary depending on the country where the oil originates.

Here at The Apothecary, we have two true lavender essential oils — one from Bulgaria, and the other from France. Our Bulgarian lavender has a sweet, semi-floral scent with a honey-like note throughout. French lavender contains more herbal notes with a fresh undertone and is closer in scent to what many associate with true lavender. Despite the difference in fragrance, the therapeutic values of these two oils are nearly identical.

My sleep time ritual

I learned in the store that I could make my own lavender mist for my pillow case by adding drops of the essential oil to distilled water in a spray bottle. I spritz my pillow every night as part of my sleep routine and I love it!

Love this lavender. I use in my diffuser. Also, I use it on handkerchiefs under pillows, in linen closet, and in my dresser drawers. Fabulous, calming scent.
