For me, no other scent is as simultaneously heady, calming, and rejuvenating. The history of this sweet-smelling herb is well documented. The ancient Romans often used lavender petals and lavender oil to scent their baths, beds, and clothes, as well as employed its unique properties medicinally.
Of course, today the most commonly sourced lavender is from France and the famous lavender fields of Provence. But, did you know that lavender can be grown almost anywhere? And, quickly gaining in popularity is Bulgarian lavender.
According to Exploring Aromatherapy, “Bulgarian lavender is grown in a low altitude environment and has a slight, deep note and herbaceous tone. Bulgarian lavender has the same therapeutic benefits as French Lavender… making it perfect for skin care and beauty recipes as well as household uses.”
A wonderful way to try Bulgarian lavender for yourself is with a bottle of essential oil from First Botany Cosmeceuticals. This is therapeutic grade, 100% pure lavender oil, with no fillers or additives.
How to Use Lavender Oil
One of my favorite ways to use lavender oil is in the bath. And, because this bottle has a very convenient eyedropper, it is very easy to get just the right amount. Three drops is more than enough – the whole bathroom smells like heaven. (I also like the eye dropper because I have occasionally developed skin reactions to essential oils – probably by using too much, especially Peppermint Oil – so this helps me not overdo it.)
The oil is also fabulous for scenting drawers (just a drop on a sachet), bed pillows (a drop on a sachet tucked into the underside of the pillow) and even whole rooms (one drop on a lit light bulb).
Lavender oil can even be used in homemade beauty essentials such as soaps, massage oils, bath salts and body wash!
