Lavender is the most widely used essential oil in aromatherapy, particularly for its relaxing and antiseptic properties. The plant name is derived from the latin 'Lavare' - to wash, probably from its use to cleanse wounds.

Lavender has a fresh, floral, light, sweet aroma. Also known as Clonal Lavender, this Lavender grows at low altitude in the Provence region of France. It has a lower ester content than High Altitude Lavender, giving it a slightly more pungent and earthy aroma. Lavender is a gentle oil and is the most versatile in aromatherapy. 

Lavender is best known for its relaxing properties; try placing two drops on a handkerchief by your pillow at bedtime.
