Lavender France Essential Oil (High Altitude)

Latin Name:Lavandula angustifolia
Country of Origin:France
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.

During summer months, I use lavender and lemon mix in with Shea butter to keep the mosquitoes away. It works!
