Lavender True Essential Oil

Lavender True Essential Oil, is an incredibly popular aromatherapy oil, especially in the UK and France. However, both countries prefer Lavender True Essential Oil made from French Lavender.

UK Lavender Essential Oil, made from English Lavender, is considered to produce a poorer quality Lavender Oil. Aromatically, this is very much in evidence.

Consequently, UK Lavender Essential Oil users tend to buy Lavender Aromatherapy Oils sourced from France and Bulgaria, in preference to UK Lavender Essential Oil made with English Lavender.

*A good amount of Lavender True Essential Oil is produced in Bulgaria, where the growing conditions are ideal for growing French Lavender.

Wild As The Wind Products Containing Lavender  Essential Oil

Lavender Aromatherapy Oil, is one of the most critical ingredients in FACIAL OIL No. 2. However, we use the Organic Lavender Essential Oil, sourced from Bulgaria, within this beautiful facial oil.

Lavender True Essential Oil is an important ingredient in the Fortitude Essential Oil Blend designed to provide neurological and emotional support for those suffering from chronic illnesses.

Lavender True Aromatherapy Oil is also in the Wild As The Wind Ultimate Insect Repellent Essential Oil Blend.

Lavender True Essential Oil Benefits

There are two botanical names for Lavender True Aromatherapy Oil, which are :: Lavandula Angustifolia or Lavandula Officinalis.

The superiority of Lavender Angustifolia / Lavandula Officinalis to other varieties of Lavender is recognised in herbalism as well as aromatherapy, and is broadly used for therapeutic and medicinal purposes by herbalists.

Lavender True Essential Oil Health Benefits

Lavender True Aromatherapy Oil health benefits are believed to include: Analgesic + anti-anxiety + antibacterial + anti-convulsant + anti-depressant + antifungal + antihistamine + anti-inflammatory + antimicrobial + antineoplastic, (anti-tumour) + antioxidant + antiseptic + antispasmodic + antiviral + carminative (reduces gastric gas & bloating) + calming + CNS depressant, (CNS = Central Nervous System) + deodorant + detoxifying + hypotensive, (lowers blood pressure) + immune-stimulating + nervine + sedative + vulnerary (wound healing)

Lavender Essential Oil Traditional Health Benefits

Lavender Essential Oil is traditionally believed to contain calming, pain-relieving & relaxing properties. It has been used to stimulate peristalsis & the production of bile & gastric juices, with a view to providing digestive relief.

It has been used topically as a vapour rub, either applied to the neck, chest, or back, and has also been inhaled, via a process of steam inhalation, to speed recovery & provide symptomatic relief from respiratory infections.

Lavender Essential Oil has also been used to improve circulation & hypertension.

Other traditional uses for Lavender True Essential Oil include :: Insomnia, anxiety and depression, burns & wound healing and as an effective insect repellent.

The Wild As The Wind Ultimate Insect Repellent Essential Oil Blend provides more comprehensive insect repellent benefits, rather than using Lavender true Essential Oil on its own.

The other aromatherapy oils in this blend are:

However, only organic essential oils are used in the Wild As The Wind Ultimate Insect Repellent Essential Oil Blend, as opposed to these ethically sourced alternatives.

Lavender True Essential Oil Alternatives

Another form of Lavender Essential Oil is Lavender Spike Essential Oil, with the botanical name of Lavandula Latifolia

The key difference between Lavender Spike Aromatherapy Oil & Lavender True Essential Oil is the high camphor and 1.8 cineole content of Lavender Spike Essential Oil. Because of this, Lavender Spike Essential Oil is significantly more stimulating than Lavender True Essential Oil.

This means that people who are using Lavender Essential Oil for the purposes of insomnia should avoid using Lavender Spike Essential Oil, and should use Lavender True Essential Oil instead.

However, Lavender Spike Essential Oil has other benefits, and has been used traditionally for pain relief.

    LOve it, love, love it. Like Lavender but with bells on – a full on immersive experience of Lavender-ness. Thank you, Lavender & thank you, Rachel.

  2. Fiona Randall (verified owner)

    I use this oil daily in my burner, mixed with DMSO and distilled water in a spritzer which I apply liberally to my body. It’s my favorite oil and brings a sense of ease to my body and environment. I have been working with essential oils over the years on and off and I received my order this morning and can already tell this is a quality product. Thank you, Rachel, for your warm, human approach, so refreshing in these days of 1’s and 0’s engagement.

  3. Clare Nicholson (verified owner)

    This oil is the real deal it smells divine. I’ve used essential oils all of my adult life and never had anything this glorious. It smells deliciously delicate, and truly helps to calm me ready for sleep.

  6. Melanie (verified owner)

    I have tried a few different brands of Lavender over the years and this Lavender True Essential Oil is just beautiful. You can smell the quality of it, and it gets used in my house for a whole variety of ailments. My children have learnt to reach for it when they have any skin problems, I defuse it at night in their rooms to help them sleep, and I put in our baths to relax and unwind. I feel confident that it is safe and pure.

    I use Lavender True essential oil because it smells heavenly. Used in my bath with Epsom Salts it helps with sleep & my recent gastric issues. The bathroom is a delight to walk into after I’ve been in & health wise I cannot be without it. x

    • Rachel Wild

      Thanks so much for your great feedback. I’m so glad Lavender Essential Oil is helping you with a number of things. And, because Lavender is antiviral, it’s helping with even more than you think! x x
