Essential Oil Introduction

Lavender, also known as "True lavender" or highland lavender, blooms every May, the average growth altitude is approximately 800 meters or above. It is drought-resistant, with purple flower spikes. Its name derives from the Latin "Lavare," meaning "to wash". In ancient Roman times, people bathed with lavender, believing it could cleanse the soul and body.

Originally native to the Mediterranean coast, lavender spread to Britain and northern Europe as the Romans expanded their empire. Over the past two millennia, it has been widely utilized for medicinal and culinary purposes, now being one of the main plants of traditional European medicine and aromatherapy. The familiar lavender, known as "Lavender," was referred to as "espic" in the 18th century and, in Provence, called "epi." Romans and Greeks used lavender to "purify" and "cleanse" hospital wards and shelters. During the Second World War, Dr. Jean Valnet utilized herbal oils like lavender to treat severe burns and wounds of soldiers, and achieving significant results.

Currently, over 20 varieties of lavender have been discovered, with over a hundred hybrid varieties. However, in aromatherapy, true lavender essential oil remains the most commonly used. Its rich ester structure is gentle and safe, suitable for all ages, and can address various conditions such as headaches, fever, and skin problems.

Research Validation

▸ A True lavender is known to have soothing and calming effects (Ludvigson and Rottmann 1989;Diego et al.1998,Moss et al.2003;Lehrner et al. 2005).

For instance: Lehrner et al. 2005, Ambient Odors of Orange and Lavender Reduce Anxiety and Improve Mood in a Dental Office. Once again confirmed, True lavender can assist in alleviating emotional distress and calming dental patients' anxiety.

▸ D. Giovannini et al. demonstrated that lavender essential oil exhibits antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects in the macrophage-mediated response to Staphylococcus aureus.
