Essential Facts

Notes & Use

What Stillpoint "Nose"

 
Lavender is one of the oils that is so under rated and overlooked, in my opinion.  It is one of the most well rounded oils that one can use.  It is a great "bridge oil"... meaning it can bring a blend of a formulation together when no other oil does.
 
We have Lavandula angustifolia from many countries and we are always asked what is the difference.  The difference is subtle as they are all Lavandula angistfolias.  The aromas are different and the energy of the oils are different.  Chemically they are pretty much on the same page.
 
Lavender has an outstanding sedative and healing effect on the nervous system. Considering that so many illnesses are stress-related, Lavender holds a special place in both preventive health care, and in the treatment of tension-related illnesses. The alcohols and esters offer soothing and antispasmodic effects that can ease tight muscles, digestive problems, spasmodic coughs, menstrual cramps, insomnia, and tension headaches.
 
Lavender's anti-inflammatory, skin-healing properties help heal burns, bug bites, wounds, bee stings, rashes, acne and skin irritations or infections. I use a few drops of Lavender in any blend for reducing emotional tension or unwinding physical pain, and for any sudden skin problems. Also effective against acne bacteria.
 
What many people do not know is that Lavender is a great anti tussive.  It is great to help reduce coughs.

Botany

Lavender angustiflolia  is a beaitiful and strongly aromatic shrub.  It grows to be between 3 and 6 feet tall.  The leaves are evergreen about 0.79–2.36  long, and about .16–0.24 in wide.  THe leaves are soft and velvety to the touch.  The flowers are pinkish-purple just like the color lavender.
 
A cool fact is that the species name angustifolia is Latin for "narrow leaf". Back inthe day it was known as Lavandula officinalis, referring to its medicinal properties.
