Essential Oil of Lavender

Lavender (Lavendula officinalis / angustifolia -True Lavendar)

There are many varieties and hybrid species of Lavender grown commercially today but Lavendula angustifolia is the original ‘true’ or French Lavender that most people know well. The grey-green foliage and purple-blue flower spike of Lavender is readily identifiable in a herb garden and the aroma of the essential oil is readily released when the flowers or leaves are touched.

Lavender is a member of the Labiatae Family and is a native of the Mediterranean and Middle East regions. However, Lavender plantations are now widely found around the world as species hybridisation has enabled Lavender to be grown commercially outside its natural climatic range.

The fresh, clean scent of lavender needs no description, neither does the palnt. The oil is clear and has a fairly mild, bitter tasts. Lavender blends well with a great number of essential oils, adding a light, floral softness to almost any mixture.

The clear essential oil is extracted by steam distillation from the flowers and has a clean and fresh aroma.
