Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender Essential Oil Properties
Lavender essential oil is extracted by steam-distilling lavender flowers, a calming, aromatic plant that is native to the Mediterranean. Lavandula angustifolia, formerly known as Lavendula officinalis, is also known as English lavender or true lavender and has uses in aromatherapy, massage therapy, herbal medicine, and more! Its fragrant nature promotes calming and soothing feelings to help with sleep and relaxation, which explains why it is so commonly used!
The lavender essential oil properties are often utilized to help with relaxation and sleep. Some people like to diffuse the aroma around in their room, while others may inhale the aroma out of the bottle before bed. A lavender essential oil linen spray, such as our lavender hydrosol spray, can help ward moths away from your closet (they hate the smell) and reduce your need of buying mothballs. A lavender essential oil linen spray can also be used on bedding to help relax before bed for restful sleep. Enjoy the many lavender essential oil properties to help with tensions, calm mood, and relaxing sleep.
