Oh Oils - Wonderfully Scented Aromatherapy for Bath, Body and Home

Not all Lavender

  • Not all Lavender is the same

    Lavender is the most used essential oil, it is gentle and versatile and smells lovely. It is part of the mint family (lamiaceae) and there are over 40 distinct species and over 400 cultivated varieties.

    Amazingly - each species of Lavender has a different chemical profile and so can benefit us in separate ways.  I thought this was fascinating and I wanted to share the main properties if the 3 most popular Lavenders.
