Lavender- French Essential Oil

Bottle Size
Add to Wishlist

We have a lot of essential oils in our Edens Garden library and because so many of them are overflowing with benefits, distinguishing between oils can get a little tricky.

 

The thing to remember about French Lavender, as opposed to our main Lavender and Spike Lavender, is that it possesses a higher ester content because it’s cultivated at a very high altitude. French Lavender also has it’s own unique aroma full of floral, sweet and winsome notes.

 

For thousands of years, the Lavender plant has been used by a variety of cultures to help an array of health and emotional issues. When King Tutankhamen's tomb was opened in 1923, archaeologist found Lavender inside. It was also used during Egyptian mummification process.

 

Lavender is of the highest quality and aroma when it is cultivated at a high altitude. During the steam distillation process, the Lavender is kept at a high altitude because the temperatures can remain low. The lower the steam’s temperature, the finer the essential oil will be. Edens Garden goes to great lengths to ensure that all of our Lavenders are of high quality so that we can deliver the very best to you.
