Lavender (lavandula angustifolia) is the most versatile of all essential oils. It is used for relaxation when applied on the body and therapeutic-grade lavender can be used to cleanse cuts, bruises and to relieve skin irritations. 

Uses for Lavender Oil

Lavender oil is very versatile, because it can be inhaled as a scent through the air, through rubbing it on skin and by ingesting in as a food additive. Lavender oils usually differ in their concentration.

The difference between various lavender oils is based on how it was cultivated and harvested. If it was sprayed with pesticides or grown organically.

I recently had a chance to review New York Biology KASHMIR LAVENDER OIL, which contains Linalool 31%, Linalyl Acetate 34%.  The 1fl oz bottle comes with a dropper and has a strong lavender scent. 

“Kashmir Lavender is grown in the foothills of the Himalayas in high-altitude valleys famed for their rich harvests of aromatic and medicinal plants. Redolent of the mountain air and the glacial waters of its home, this particular varietal is especially high in Linalool, the compound responsible for its relaxing and soothing properties. It has more therapeutic values than other average lavender oils and pleasant scent. A superior high-altitude lavender oil, this Kashmir Jewel is complex and sweet with a lush, herbaceous bouquet. ”
