Lavender True Essential Oil
Lavender True Essential Oil, which is more commonly used for it’s superior benefits than other varieties of Lavender True Aromatherapy Oil, is one of the most critical ingredients in FACIAL OIL No. 2, (although, Organic Lavender Essential Oil is used for this).
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 + antineoplastic, (anti-tumour) + anti-inflammatory + antimicrobial + antioxidant + antiseptic + antispasmodic + antiviral + carminative (reduces gastric gas & bloating) + calming + CNS depressant, (CNS = Central Nervous System) + deodorant + detoxifying + hypotensive, (lowers blood pressure) + immuno-stimulating + nervine + sedative + vulnerary (wound healing)
Lavender Essential Oil Traditional Healing 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.
Lavender Aromatherapy Oil is in the Wild As The Wind Ultimate Insect Repellent Essential Oil Blend.
Other aromatherapy oils in this blend include: Patchouli Essential Oil, Tea Tree Essential Oil, Eucalyptus Essential Oil, Eucalyptus Lemon Essential Oil, Citronella Essential Oil and Geranium Essential Oil. 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.
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.
