High altitudes are preferred in lavender essential oil and this one is a perfect example of why. The sweet floral scent is fresh and lively and the oil’s key constituents are at very good values. This happens when the distillation is done at high altitude, where it can be done with lower temperatures and pressure.
Lavender is best-known for it’s ability to relieve tension and promote a calm, relaxed atmosphere. It’s this benefit that makes me wear it to “high power” meetings, where tension is normally high. The same benefit often has lavender essential oil in my nighttime diffuser. It’s a great way to let the day’s stress melt away before I settle in for a good night’s sleep.
Aside from the emotional stress-relief, lavender can help stressed skin when applied in a diluted fashion. We highly suggest a jojoba/rosehip combination for a carrier when applying to skin. The combination of the three is awesome for improving the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and smoothing the overall skin. I love the effect this combo has on skin most when I get a minor burn while cooking. The relief is immediate.
Do to the versatility of lavender essential oil, it’s a glorious addition to any first-aid kit! Mixed in a spray bottle with Tea Tree and a carrier oil, you can have a great spray for those owies that don’t want to be touched.

While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use in your diffuser, your inhaler, or topically (diluted), it is a pure essential oil and can be used as such. With all essential oils:
- Never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas). The strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
- Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
- Keep away from children.
- If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).
For educational purposes only. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally. Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert. Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
