Lavender is probably the most used of essential oils. It is the gentlest oil and therefore is used by many mothers for their babies and young children. It has a sweet floral scent that is smooth and herbaceous. Lavender blends well with Bergamot, Cedarwood, Chamomile, Citronella, Clary Sage, Clove, Geranium, Jasmine, Laurel Leaf, Lemon, Mandarin, Oakmoss, Orange, Patchouli, Rose, Rosemary, Thyme and Vetiver.
Lavender is famous for its high quality and purity. Although French Lavender is also highly regarded, France imports a large amount of Lavender to use in their Lavender Essential Oil production. Thus France exports more Lavender Essential Oil than it produces. Bulgarian Lavender comes from northern Bulgaria which is referred to as the Garden of Lavender.
When I first started learning about essential oils in 1995, I began using lavender essential oil on my face in place of my previous skin regimen, wild aloe leaves. My then husband went out of town to work for a week and when he came home he said my face looked different, younger than before he left. I have used lavender on my face all these years and still get compliments on my skin. I have used lavender essential oil on my children when they were babies to soothe hot skin when we have really hot weather in Florida, for occasional sunburn, for adding to homemade body lotion, for cuts and abrasions, for teething and as a totally natural underarm deodorant.
