The word “lavender” derives from the Latin word “lavare” which means “to wash”, and it was used in ancient times by the Egyptians and Romans for baths, relaxation, cooking, and as a perfume. Lavender essential oil is widely used in aromatherapy. It has a soothing, calming effect, so it is used therapeutically in many conditions such as acne, rosacea and eczema. Various components of lavender oil have shown antibacterial and antifungal activities. Lavender essential oil can be applied directly on skin burns and insect stings (except for very sensitive skin). Diluted lavender oil can be used to massage the body to ease tension. (PDR For Herbal Medicines. Montvale, NJ :Thomson, 2007)

Aetheleon organic lavender essential oil is 100% pure, without any admixture or dilution. Our careful choice of the lavender plant species, Lavandula Angustifolia, was made with a view to creating a high quality product with unique properties. Harvesting is totally performed by hand. Steam distillation is carried out in a local certified organic distillery immediately after harvesting so that the botanical ingredients remain active. High pressure steam (1.3 bars, 100 °C) passes through the plant material inside a sealed stainless steel still. Volatile compounds are vaporized and then flow through a coil before being cooled and condensed to a liquid mixture consisting of a layer of essential oil and a layer of floral water.
