Description

Description

Lavandula angustifolia is a perennial, shrub-like plant that's part of the mint family. Many products are derived from this, with its oil being the most versatile. It's obtained from the flowering tops of the plants through steam distillation.

It was René-Maurice Gattefossé, a French chemist from the early 20th century, who accidentally discovered the soothing and healing properties of lavender oil. Legend has it that he severely burned his hands during tests in his laboratory and immediately immersed them in lavender oil (which was nearest to him at the time). His hands healed so well that he became passionate about the properties of essential oils, and is now recognised as the ‘father of modern aromatherapy’.

If you’re struggling with sleepless nights then lavender is a great ally to have when trying to switch off before bed. Its flower is filled with linalool, a substance known for its sedative effects on the nervous system.

Lush buy lavender oil from a French distiller based in sunny Provence, a region in the south of the country. The flowers used to produce this aromatic oil can come from several different European countries, depending on availability (mainly France, Ukraine and Bulgaria).
