Lavender immediately ignites the senses: the colour, the texture and its distinctive fragrance transports you to the beautiful Lavender fields of Provence. Rows and rows of blooming blue-violet flowers under an endless summer sky.
But what you may not know is that there is so much more to Lavender than just its unique perfume. Lavendula (common name Lavender) is produced from a plant known as Lavandula Angustifolia, which is native to Mediterranean regions and northern Africa. Having been discovered more than 2500 years ago, there is a good reason why Lavender continues to be commonplace today.
Our use of Lavender Essential Oil combined with carefully selected natural ingredients ensures the highest quality across the entire Revive Moisturising Gel Therapy range.
The versatility of its aromatic and healing properties undoubtedly makes Lavender the most popular of all essential oils. As an oil, it can be added to bath and body care products like laundry detergents, household cleaners, perfumes and soaps. Lavender contains antibacterial, antiseptic, anti fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. Immerse yourself in one of nature’s finest fragrances and try one of these refreshing, relaxing uses for Lavender in the home:
- Used as a compress, soak a suitable towel in a bowl of water that’s been infused with a few drops of Lavender. Apply it to strained muscle injuries, sprains or try placing a cold compress across your forehead to gently soothe away tension headaches.
- Add a few drops to a bowl of warm water and inhale the steam or use an oil burner, vaporiser, scent diffuser or Lavender infused candle.
- Massage on your skin to help relief joint or muscle pains. Massaging it on skin also helps with treatment of skin conditions such as eczema, acne and burns. Be sure to dilute it with carrier oils like Jojoba and Sweet Almond Oil.
- Add to the shower or bath to help wash away the stress and tension of a busy day, and induce a restful night’s sleep.
