Wholesale Certified Organic Lavender Essential Oil

100% pure Certified Organic Lavender essential oil from Bulgaria. We're offering this as a highly-therapeutic, low cost alternative to the French Lavenders. We've just received this year's distillation, and it is exceptional, beginning to match the aromas of the French lavenders. This Certified Organic distiller, who also produces a wonderful Certified Organic Rose Otto, has done a fantastic job with this oil. Highly recommended! Our Organic Bulgarian Lavender Oil is available from sample size up to 1 kg or more.

ABOUT THE OIL

This lovely Bulgarian Lavender has a slightly deeper overall aroma and is somewhat more herbaceous in tone than the French varieties. Only minor variations in the chemical profile of the oil are produced by variations in the growing environment. The lower altitudes of the entire production process produces a wonderful deep and herbacous aroma, where the very highest notes found in the French oils are not as pronounced. We find the difference is most noticeable when inhaling directly from the bottle and is almost non-existent once applied to skin, bedding (for sleep enhancement), or blends. The lower cost makes this a fantastic choice for your skin and hair care creations or for any topically applied therapeutic preparation containing lavender. Lavender essential oil acts as balancing agent, not only offering its important antimicrobial, antiviral - and new research shows even potential anti-cancer effects - but the oil helps return the balance to our physiology. This is why you'll find 1/2 to 1% lavender essential oil in so many skin care recipes.

Aromatherapy Notes

This Lavender oil has a soft floral top note with hints of anise, a sweet, resinous middle note and lightly wooded and earthy undertones. Synergistic blending companions include: most citrus and floral oils, Cedarwood, Clove, Clary Sage, Pine, Geranium, Labdanum, Oakmoss, Vetiver and Patchouli.

Traditional Uses

Use in a diffuser, wear just a drop or two on your wrists, or add to laundry for a lucious, fresh and relaxing scent on sheets, towels, or clothing. Lavender is the most popular essential oil used in aromatherapy because of its very wide array of uses. In addition to the physiological and neurological calming effects and the balancing effects in beauty care, lavender is a highly regarded wound healer. The oil is notably effective on small burns, conditions of the skin that are burn-like (eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis) or when blended 50/50 with Tea Tree Lavender serves as an all purpose, highly soothing antiseptic, suitable for all the cuts and scrapes of youthful exhuberance. The familiar, sweet aroma rendered it known as the 'nose herb' in ancient times. Lavender has been used for centuries as a calming yet reviving oil and commonly added to linen as a sleep aid, as a flavoring agent for water or alcoholic beverages and in baths, massage oils and tonics to relieve stress-related ailments.

  • The latest research on Lavender essential oil was published by researchers at the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Medical University of Vienna, Austria. This was a placebo controlled, randomized, double blind study investigating the effects of a pill containing 80 milligrams of Lavender essential oil. The pill was evaluated primarily for its effects at reducing anxiety and improving sleep. Study participants consumed one of these capsules daily for 10 weeks. In every category examined, the lavender preparation exceeded the efficacy of the placebo. It was able to improve the quality of sleep, reduce anxiety, and actually improve the overall perception of health and well-being for the users. The researchers concluded the Lavender-containing capsule "is both efficacious and safe for the relief of anxiety disorder...It has a clinically meaningful anxiolytic (anxiety-relieving) effect and alleviates anxiety related disturbed sleep.” In a study by the same group of researchers, Lavender oil was compared not to a placebo, but to Lorazepam, a "high potency benzodiazepine drug." The conclusion noted: "our results demonstrate that [...the Lavender capsule...] is as effective as Lorazepam in adults with GAD (general anxiety disorder)." It was also noted that one of the wonderful features of the natural substance is that it has no potential for abuse, unlike the benzodiazepines (such as Valium). Lavender has been favorably compared to these anxiety-relieving drugs in many studies over the last decade and is also noted in its ability to reduce aggressive tendencies.
