Lavender Oil (Lavandula Angustifolia)

An oil obtained from Lavendula officinalis, it is a common medicinal plant with many benefits. It is well tolerated by most and offers a multitude of benefits. It is a strong anti-inflammatory that is good for minor burns, insect bites and stings. We use it as a skin-conditioning and healing agent, that also gives our body products a light, fresh scent.

Lavender Oil (Lavandula Hybrida)

One of many species of lavender plants, it is a hybrid plant from lavender and lavender spike. Also known as lavandin, it is more antiseptic than its French lavender cousin, although they both offer skin-soothing properties. Lavandin’s scent is stronger and more uplifting. We use the two together to make the most of each oil’s unique properties. Ours is organic.
