Lavender Essential Oil Sweet

$23.99

Lavender oil is 'the' most important essential oil to have on hand for its multitude of purposes. First of all, it's potently anti-septic, and is exceptional in treating burns. It's analgesic (reduces pain) and well tolerated by most people (although there certainly are people who don't care for it).

Useful lavender comes in (broadly) two varieties - French and English. To keep things easier, we call the French types 'savoury' and the English types 'sweet' - think rosemary as opposed to Grandma's Sunday soap. This is partly due to the presence of camphor in the chemotype of the French plants, which comes across as being more 'medicinal' or pungent in the oil - in fact, the savoury French type is what we recommend for foggy headaches, sinus colds and so on, as opposed to the more floral English, which is our 'go-to' for a drop on the pillow to aid sleep.

We began our lavender odyssey many decades ago, and began distilling the stuff at the turn of the century (!?) ~ our oil has had the unique and high praise of the matriarch of distilling in Canada, Madame Mainguy of Aliksir in Quebec - when I gave her a wee bottle of my English white lavender oil to sniff she whispered, ' oh mais c'est magnifique!'.

(You can find more info about our lavender experiences here in 'Canada's Provence'  just as soon as I get that blog written...).

This Sweet Lavender oil is a careful blend of Dragonfly estate oil, certified organic & de facto organic and top quality oils from 'away' (mainly France) to bring it to a reasonable price. You can't imagine the backbreaking work that goes into making this stuff by hand... it takes three banana boxes stuffed with lavender to yield about 100 mLs of oil... now that's potent stuff!

Dragonfly Dreaming® came to life in 1996 with the birth of a wee red-headed baby girl. Concern that she might inherit her Scottish Daddy's sensitive skin led us to creating, from scratch, lovely things to use on her skin - all plant based, with no petrochemicals, preservatives, nut or animal oils. Thus, we created the cutting edge in truly natural organic body care because back then, there was NOTHING chemical-free on the market!

Although most people thought we were a little bonkers, we were absolutely certain that by blending the distinctly different healing traditions of herbalism & aromatherapy, we could create effective plant-based natural organic body care products for both body and spirit. It all began in the forest and the herb garden...

Educating people about the potential effects of using commercial (chemical) skin care has been a core value of our work since we began 23 years ago. Our mantra 'the skin is the outside of the in' fell on deaf ears for a very, very long time, so it's gratifying to see that people are beginning to realize that what you put on your skin really does matter! 

We've been teaching workshops on scent, distillation and essential oils, natural perfume blending, herbalism and wildcrafting for the past two decades, and still try to work in a few sessions every summer. Check out our calendar, or give us a call if you'd like to join in.

Super organic ingredients and the healing traditions of many eras and cultures - infused with the sparkling cutting-edge twist and matchless quality of an obsessed perfectionist - it could only come from Dragonfly Dreaming®, Canada’s original Pioneer Au Naturel - organic alchemy for body & spirit, since 1996 - created by hand, by us, on Vancouver Island.
