Lavender….. the most versatile essential oil
(Lavandula angustifolia)

Lavender can be used in a wide range of skin care, hair

Lavender use dates back to the times of the ancient Greeks,
though the Romans were responsible for the widespread use
of Lavender throughout Europe. They took it with them
everywhere to use in their bath water and soap. It was
widely used in potpourri and sachets for its aroma.

As a sedative and disinfectant, the medicinal uses of
Lavender are well known, and with modern trends toward
herbal remedies, it is more popular than ever.

Lavender can be used to calm nervous heart complaints and
troubled sleep. It is antiseptic; antimicrobial, soothing,
stimulating, and healing. Lavender can be used in any facial,
body or hair treatment.
