Lavender - Organic Essential Oil - 10ml
Smooth and soft, with a calming floral note, this exceptional lavender is grown in the Bulgarian lavender valleys of Kazanlak, renowned for cultivating some of the finest oil-yielding plants in the world. Perhaps the most versatile of essential oils, lavender promotes both sleep, restfulness and vitality, depending on when and how it is used. Medical research supports traditional uses for:
• Enhancing quality sleep | increases the length of "deep sleep" (the critical part of sleep where our body and mind rests and re-energises) directly leading to a sense of “higher vigor” the following morning. • Mild insomnia remedy | recommended by medical researchers as a “safe alternative” to conventional pharmaceutical medicine, for "mild to moderate sleep disturbances”. • Relaxation | decreases heart rate and blood pressure, inducing a more relaxed state. Also ideal to calm irritable/sleepless babies.

Cotton ball:put a few drops in cotton balls and breathe in or (better still) place cotton in a cylindrical container first and breathe in from there. Keep the container at 10cm away and inhale 10 deep breaths. Repeat steps for desired effects 2-3 times a day.
Sleep: Add 1-2 drops to pillow before bed, positioned where your nose can directly breathe it in. For more troubled sleep, combine with deep breathing exercise. To do this, apply 1-2 drops of oil to the palms & rub together gently. Lay down & close eyes. When breathing to help with sleep, it is useful to focus attention on the breathing & nothing else. Restful sleep is more likely in a total dark room - no candles or mood effects.
Internal health: Add a drop to herbal tea to help unwind.
Diffuser/Vaporisation: add recommended number of drops to nebulizer or cold steam diffuser.
Bath: Add few drops to bath. To help oils disperse easily, mix first with little oil or our liquid soap before pouring into bath.
Steam/Compress for cold/flu: Add 10 drops to 100ml very warm water. Soak cloth in the scented water & wrap on desired area (ideal for bruises, wounds, muscular aches & pains and skin problems). For facial steam add 5 drops to bowl of hot water, cover head with a towel to make a tent, then steam face for a few mins.
Massages: Use 1-2% essential oil to carrier (i.e. 1-2 drops per 10ml of carrier); for children under 12 halve this amount.
Seek professional advice to use internally or undiluted on skin • Keep away from eyes & children.
