Lavender - Cert. Organic
Bulgarian Lavender is a flowering herb which has been produced in Bulgaria for many decades. Lavender Bulgarian is similar to the Lavender French Alpine in that it too is very high in esters, such as linalyl acetate. The oil is steam distilled.
Lavender has a long history of use; the name coming from the Latin word 'lavere', which means 'to wash', because the Romans added Lavender to their bath water. It is the essential oil made famous by Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, who, upon burning his hand in a laboratory accident, plunged it into a container of lavender oil and immediately experienced relief from the pain. He was also intrigued to find that the burn healed without the usual blistering or scarring, and became interested in the healing power of essential oils. His studies led to the publication of the book Aromatherapie, and also popularized the term aromatherapy for the study of essential oils.
