Lavender Essential Oil Properties

  • Its botanical name is lavandula officinalis. 
Lavender Flowers
  • Is often used for relieving depression, insomnia, headaches, nervous tension, pain, PMS and to disinfect the scalp and skin. 

  • It's said to kill germs, help acne, eczema & dandruff. 
  • Very useful as an insect repellent and to soothe insect bites and minor burns. 
  • Great for healing cuts, wounds and sun damaged skin. 
  • If diluted, it is gentle enough for babies and has a soothing effect. 
  • Is clear to light yellow in color and is usually steam distilled from the flowers of the plant. 
  • Works very well in cold process soap making and is used often in lotions, gels, infusions and in aromatherapy. 
  • Often when adding lavender essential oil to a batch of handmade soap, the saponification process seems to slow down and even reverse slightly. The soap batter may become more watery for a little bit but don't worry, just keep stirring and the soap will trace once again.
  • Blends well with many other essential oils, including, all citrus & floral oils, rosemary, pine, sage, vanilla and spices...probably many others as well!
  • As with most essential oils, it is best avoided when pregnant.
