The benefits of lavender essential oil

What is essential oil?

Essential oils are highly concentrated oils extracted from plants, flowers, herbs, leaves, or tree resin through the process of steam distilling or cold pressing. These oils beautifully capture the scent - or essence - of their source. Essential oils are used by aromatherapists across the world to help treat anxiety and to support a healthy balanced lifestyle.

Properties of lavender

Lavender boasts anti-inflammatory properties and could help to soothe, calm, and heal irritated skin. It also holds antibacterial and antiseptic properties and may help to kill acne-causing bacteria and reduce redness of the skin. A potent source of antioxidants, lavender may help to reduce the signs of premature aging and damage from free radicals including pollution and UV rays.

Benefits of lavender

Lavender is used around the world to treat mental health problems including anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Studies have shown that the relaxing, calming aroma from the oil helps to de-stress the mind, reduce feelings of anxiety, and assist the user in getting a better night's sleep.

Why do we use essential oils in our products?

We love all things natural and so opt to use essential oils in our products rather than synthetic fragrances. Artificial fragrance oils are produced from petroleum-based chemicals - aka toxins. These chemical nasties can have a drying effect and may be irritating to the skin. That's why we only use 100% pure steam distilled essential oils in our products - for their beautiful natural scents and for their health and well-being benefits.
