INCI Name: Lavandula Latifolia Herb Oil
While True Lavender (called interchangeably Lavandula angustifolia, L. officinalis and L. vera) thrives more at high altitudes, Spike Lavender (called interchangeably Lavandula latifolia and Lavandula spica) grows naturally at lower altitudes on the same sunny hills in the south of France. This difference in growing environments explains why Spike Lavender Oil contains more Camphor, the chemical responsible for its sweet herbaceous-camphoraceous smell.
Along with helping to manage minor pain and inflammation, Spike Lavender Essential Oil is often selected to assist in reducing the presence of unwanted bacterial and fungal growth, and help ease unwanted muscle spasms. This essential oil is also regularly incorporated into blends for healthy lung support. Because of its relaxing and stimulating effects, Spike Lavender Essential Oil also helps in regulating sleep, calmness, mental alertness and stress-related conditions, including depression.
Spike Lavender Oil has powerful antiseptic properties that help soothe and heal cuts, burns and damaged or scarred skin. Spike Lavender Essential Oil is also deeply skin nourishing and often used in skin care blends for bringing freshness and vitality to the skin. This essential oil is perfect in a facial toner, facial mask, bath salt blend, or salt scrub recipe. Furthermore, it can handle symptoms of eczema, psoriasis and other unsightly inflammatory skin conditions.
