Alpine Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender is one of the world's oldest remedies for soothing the body, mind and emotions. Throughout history, it has been used in cultures as varied as ancient Egypt and Greece and Medieval Europe. Lavender oil's gentle and effective character makes it an ancient go-to oil for washing and smoothing the skin, spiritual purification, daily relaxation rituals, and emotional grace.
"This extremely hardy, weather-resistant, sun-loving variety has the most delicate, fine 'powdery-floral' fragrance. This is because the ester content of its oil is higher than lavenders from lower elevations..."
