So why is Lavender amazing as a skincare super ingredient?

Anti-Hero. Anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antibacterial, antioxidants. Lavender has got it covered. All four antis work to rejuvenate skin cells. It’s a dream come true for treating conditions such as eczema, psoriasis + acne.

Repairs + Protects. Lavender oil is your skin’s personal bodyguard. It not only fights off nasty free radicals, toxins & pollutants, but also lends a helping hand fighting off infection. Roman soldiers regularly treated wounds with lavender oil.

Calms. This natural anxiolytic will help with symptoms of stress and anxiety. This could be because its main constituents have the molecular affinity to antagonise NMDA (neural) receptors and inhibit the SERT (serotonin transporter). One study in Japan found that when lavender essential oil was inhaled during sleep, participants rested better and woke with more ease.

Super Sustainable. Lavender grows well in dry climates with rocky soils, and needs little water. It can also be found in my garden in abundance, which proves it needs very little TLC.

Our Lavender Oil is sourced from France and is extracted by steam distillation.
