Lavender, Fine (Lavandula angustifolia)
High Altitude from France
High altitude French lavender is considered the benchmark among all the varieties of lavender. Essential oils distilled from within the "fine variety" are grown at over 2,400 ft., and at a lower temperature which preserves a fuller and more potent aromatic and therapeutic profile (higher ester content). The result is exquisite oil with a clean, fresh, sweet floral aroma with a slightly herbal undertone.
Lavender is the most versatile essential oil and no home should be without it. It has an outstanding balancing and healing effect on the nervous system. Lavender Fine is the most relaxing of all the Lavender essential oils due to its high ester content. It offers a soothing and antispasmodic effect that can assist tight muscles, digestive problems, spasmodic coughs, menstrual cramps, insomnia, and tension headaches (blend with peppermint). Lavender's anti-inflammatory, skin-healing properties will help heal burns, bug bites, wounds, bee stings, rashes, acne, and skin irritations or infections.
At a deeper level, lavender is soothing in times of trauma. It’s an aromatic “Rescue Remedy”. It brings balance to the body and the mind. It works wherever there is a need. Lavender encourages full expression and perfection of the individual. It helps calm the nervous anxiety that comes with over sensitivity and shyness.
