Harvested in Bulgaria Distilled from the flower Bottled in London • 10ml / 0.34 fl. oz
Smooth and soft, with a calming floral note, this exceptional lavender is grown in the Bulgarian lavender valleys of Kazanlak, renowned for some of the finest oil-yielding plants in the world. Perhaps the most versatile of essential oils, lavender can promote both restfulness and vitality, depending on when and how it is used.
The following points were gathered from a host of medical research:
Deep & quality sleep: Several separate recent studies revealed the various aspects of lavender’s impact on sleep. It has consistently been shown to increase "deep sleep" (the critical stage where our body and mind rests and re-energises) directly leading to “higher vigor” the following morning. An 8 week study on 158 sleepless and exhausted new mums inhaling lavender before sleep, showed lavender to measurably improve sleep quality and, amongst many things, increase the speed at which people fall asleep. In all cases, restful sleep after inhalation of lavender contributes to a more focused, calmer & less irritable engagement with daily life the next day. These consistent results has led to the medical recommendation of lavender as a “safe alternative” to conventional pharmaceutical medicine for "mild to moderate sleep disturbances”. Calming irritable babies and infants: (See above) Revitalises skin: Shown to warm skin when massaged, stimulating blood circulation, which can revitalize cells for a more youthful complexion. Poor circulation causes uneven and blotchy skin. Aphrodisiac: It’s seductive, intoxicating and heady notes inspired the flower's traditional use as an aphrodisiac in the Far East, strewn on the beds of Indonesian newlyweds.
Simple inhalation: Apply 1-2 drops of oil to the palms, rub together gently and inhale deeply a few times. Sleep: Add 1-2 drops to pillow before bed, positioned where your nose can directly breathe it in. For more troubled sleep, combine with deep breathing exercise. To do this, apply 1-2 drops of oil to the palms & rub together gently. Lay down & close eyes. Breathe normally for a moment. Cup the scented hands, bring to nose & inhale deeply, allowing chest & lower belly to rise. Open palms to breathe out slowly (ideally through mouth). Repeat a few times until satisfied. Focus attention on the breathing & nothing else. Restful sleep is more likely in a total dark room - no candles or mood effects. Baths: Add 5-10 drops. To help oils disperse easily, mix the drops with ½ - 1 cup of either full fat milk, sesame oil or a little salt. Steam/Compress: Add 10 drops to 100ml water. Soak cloth & wrap on desired area (ideal for bruises, wounds, muscular aches & pains and skin problems). For facia steam add 5 drops to bowl of hot water, cover head with a towel, steam face. Massages: Use 3% essential oils to carrier (i.e. 6 drops per 10ml of carrier); for children under 12 halve this amount. Vaporisation: add recommended number of drops to nebulizer or cold steam diffuser.
