Wild Lavender Essential Oil Aroma:
As for the scent profile of this Wild Lavender France, to us, it has little to no hint of the spice you get from our Lavender Bulgaria and is super floral, almost tart sweet. Our Lavender Essential Oil, Wild has a very clean scent of lavender with less of the green note that you get from our High Alpine Lavender Essential Oil.

History: Lavender has a long history of use; the name coming from the latin word “lavere”, which means “to wash”, because the Romans added Lavender to their bath water. It is the essential oil made famous by Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, who, upon burning his hand in a laboratory accident, plunged it into a container of lavender oil and immediately experienced relief from the pain. He was also intrigued to find that the burn healed without the usual blistering or scarring, and became interested in the healing power of essential oils. His studies led to the publication of the book Aromatherapie, and also popularized the term aromatherapy for the study of essential oils.
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) is now cultivated all over the world, including France, Russia, Bulgaria, the Himalayas and Croatia. Lavender is the most popular and widely used essential oil and for good reason: not only is it remarkably gentle and effective, but it has an almost universally beloved aroma – floral, soft, and herbaceous. This is one of the essential oils that everyone should have on hand.
