What is Essential Oil of Lavender?
Lavender essential oil is extracted mostly from the flowers of the lavender plant, through steam distillation. Lavender is highly fragrant and has been used for making potpourri for centuries. Traditionally, Lavender essential oil has been used in making perfumes, gels, infusions, lotions, and soaps. The oil is very useful in aromatherapy and blends well with many other essential oils including cedarwood, pine, clary sage, geranium, and nutmeg.
