Lavender has been around for 2,500 years. There are about 20 species that vary in color, fragrance, chemical composition and function. The health benefits of lavender oil for skin are attributed to its antiseptic properties. In today's luxurious natural skincare formulas, lavender is added to treat wrinkles, acne, and psoriasis. Lavender speeds the healing of wounds, cuts, and burns and, in combination with other oils is effective in treating eczema. It can also reduce acne blemishes, prevent breakouts, balance hormones and regulate over-secretion of sebum to balance oily skin.
Many of our formulas use lavender as an ingredient for it's functionality rather than fragrance and we use a variety of Lavenders , all with slightly different properties.
