Quick Overview

From Synergy Essentials, 100% pure therapeutic grade Lavender essential oil steam distilled from lavender flowers wild grown at higher elevations of France. This is a beautiful, full-bodied lavender, with a high linalool content. Some consider this their favorite lavender of all time, with exceptional therapeutic properties.

Botanical Name: Lavendula angustifolia

A tenacious and fragrant evergreen shrub, Lavender is indigenous to the mountain ranges of Mediterranean regions; growing best in soil with low fertility and good drainage. The small violet-blue flowers sit atop blunt spiked pale green branches that can reach 4 feet in height. Known as the most popular and versatile essential oil in aromatherapy, it has been referred to as "a medicine chest in a bottle". This angustifolia variety is also known as 'true' Lavender and considered the most effective for medicinal purposes.

About the Oil
This essential oil is produced by steam distilling Lavender flowers growing wild at higher elevations in France. It contains higher levels of linalool, the constituent found to impart therapeutic calming effects than other varieties of Lavender.
Aromatherapy Notes
This Lavender oil has a soft floral top note with hints of anise, a sweet, resinous middle note and lightly wooded and earthy undertones.

Synergistic blending companions include: most citrus and floral oils, Cedarwood, Clove, Clary Sage, Pine, Geranium, Labdanum, Oakmoss, Vetiver and Patchouli.

Traditional Uses
The familiar, sweet aroma rendered it known as the 'nose herb' in ancient times. Lavender has been used for centuries as a calming yet reviving oil and commonly added to linen as a sleep aid, as a flavoring agent for water or alcoholic beverages and in baths, massage oils and tonics to relieve stress-related ailments.

The latest research on Lavender essential oil was published by researchers at the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Medical University of Vienna, Austria. This was a placebo controlled, randomized, double blind study investigating the effects of a pill containing 80 milligrams of Lavender essential oil. The pill was evaluated primarily for its effects at reducing anxiety and improving sleep. Study participants consumed one of these capsules daily for 10 weeks. In every category examined, the lavender preparation exceeded the efficacy of the placebo. It was able to improve the quality of sleep, reduce anxiety, and actually improve the overall perception of health and well-being for the users. The researchers concluded the Lavender-containing capsule "is both efficacious and safe for the relief of anxiety disorder...It has a clinically meaningful anxiolytic (anxiety-relieving) effect and alleviates anxiety related disturbed sleep."

In a study by the same group of researchers, Lavender oil was compared not to a placebo, but to Lorazepam, a "high potency benzodiazepine drug." The conclusion noted: "our results demonstrate that [...the Lavender capsule...] is as effective as Lorazepam in adults with GAD (general anxiety disorder)." It was also noted that one of the wonderful features of the natural substance is that it has no potential for abuse, unlike the benzodiazepines (such as Valium). Lavender has been favorably compared to these anxiety-relieving drugs in many studies over the last decade and is also noted in its ability to reduce aggressive tendencies.

Application and Use

Inhalation:

  • Directly from a bottle, or dab a couple drops on the wrist area.
  • There are several styles of essential oil diffusers available which release aroma into the air. Almost every one will work for stress reduction; it just takes a hint of Lavender in the air to have its effect.

Ingestion:

  • The latest research is even suggesting that ingesting Lavender has essentially the same effects as inhaling it. Lavender is very safe: it is listed by the FDA as "Generally Recognized As Safe" for ingestion as a food additive, and some companies have their bottles labeled "dietary supplements".
  • While its important to keep in mind that the protocols for ingesting any essential oil are always on the order of 1-3 drops a couple times per day and almost never more. There is a growing list of research confirming ingestion of certain oils is not only acceptable, but can result in a dramatic improvement in one's health.

Topical:

  • Effective in combination with Helichrysum oil for burns and bruises.
  • It is extremely gentle on the skin and therefore can be can be used neat (undiluted) on any burn when the skin is unbroken.
  • Combined with Tea Tree oil for a strong, yet still soothing anti-bacterial formula: a 50/50 mix of Lavender and Tea Tree can replace any sort of topical anti-bacterial formula used under band-aids and small dressings.
  • Effective sunburn relief: a 10% dilution in water dabbed over the area should be sufficient.
  • A drop on a bug bite or sting will relieve pain, itchiness and irritation.
Safety
A gently non-toxic oil, Lavender is also a non-irritant and non-sensitizing if used in the correct proportions. During pregnancy, please consult a physician prior to use.
