Lavender essential oil is the concentrated liquid containing
volatile aroma compounds steam distilled from the lavender
plant. Lavender has been used for centuries to help heal
various ailments from minor cuts, bruises and burns to
chronic diseases like rheumatism, asthma and dermatitis.
The immediate attraction and use of lavender essential oil
is in the perfume industry for its fresh, sweet and slightly
fruity floral smell.

This essential oil, like most others, is usually used mixed
with a base or carrier oil like sweet almond, grapeseed,
jojoba, avocado and others, unless it is for your bath, when
you can simply add a few drops in your bath water. Use this
oil for a pleasant fragrance or aromatherapy with an oil
burner or vapouriser. In aromatherapy, it is often used to
combat depression, stress, and fatigue. Always consult an
authourised practitioner when using lavender essential oil
as a health remedy or for aromatherapy.

In ancient Greece and Rome, health and cleanliness were given a lot of importance, and lavender and its essential oils were used as medicine, to make healthful teas, as perfumes, and for bathing and personal hygiene products. As far back as the first century AD, historians have come upon a recipe for lavender tea written by a Greek physician and botanist. Essential oils have been understood to have played a role in healing in ancient times in Egypt and China as well.

Essential oils are all sourced from plants. Different oils come from separate parts of the plant such as roots, stems, leaves, flowers, seeds and fruit. They are usually obtained by cold pressing or distillation of the appropriate part of the plant. Some plants like Lavender can give a high yield of oil whilst Rose needs an incredible amount of rose petals to achieve the same amount hence the high costs of some oils. Essential oils are extremely concentrated and should never be taken internally and when used on the skin should be diluted with a base oil.
