Lavender Essential Oil Ethically Harvested
The word 'aromatherapy' was first published in 1937 in the French book 'Aromathérapie: Les Huiles Essentielles, Hormones Végétales' written by the chemist René-Maurice Gattefossé.
In 1910, one of his hands was severely burned. The infected wounds developed the very severe gas gangrene and Gattefossé treated the wounds instinctively with essential oil of lavender.
Impressed by the results, he continued his research into the healing properties of both lavender and other essential oils. He collaborated with a number of doctors in the treatment of war wounds of French soldiers.
Lavender today is used in a multitude of natural health products and cosmetics and is one of the most popular essential oils in the practice of aromatherapy.
The soothing properties of Lavender essential oil will help calm anxiety, improve relaxation and help to promote a good night’s sleep. Used on the skin, Lavender is effective for soothing minor cuts and grazes and can also provide nourishment to dry or sun-chapped skin.
