I love lavender oil and believe that it is a home essential!
Lavender is often considered a must have oil to keep on hand at all times due to its versatile uses. Lavender has been used for over 2,500 years for medicinal and religious purposes. Ancient texts tell us that it was used by the Egyptians and Romans.
Where is doTERRA Lavender sourced?
doTERRA’s Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) essential oil is indigenous to the Provence region of France.
The high altitudes at which lavender is grown results in the plant having higher ester and sesquiterpene alcohol content, thereby increasing its helpful benefits.
You simply cannot duplicate the rocky soil and Mediterrean growing conditions that are specific to this region.
powdery, floral, light
The distinct, fresh scent of Lavender comes from the plant’s flowers, which is where the essential oil is extracted from.
After extraction, Lavender essential oil is produced through the process of steam distillation.
During steam distillation, steam and pressure are used to cause chemical elements to be released from the plant—separating water and the essential oil.
It takes three pounds of Lavender flowers to produce just one 15 mL bottle of Lavender essential oil.
