Lavender Kashmir Essential Oil
A superior high-altitude, organic lavender oil that rivals the best French lavenders, this Kashmiri jewel is complex and sweet with a lush, herbaceous bouquet. Our Kashmir lavender is grown in the foothills of the Himalayas in high-altitude valleys famed for their rich harvests of aromatic and medicinal plants. Redolent of the mountain air and the glacial waters of its home, this particular varietal is especially high in linalool, the compound responsible for its relaxing and soothing properties. Floracopeia’s unique, organic Kashmir lavender is distilled in very limited quantities.
How to Use Lavender Kashmir Essential Oil
Perhaps the easiest way to use lavender oil is through simple, direct palm inhalation. Place a drop of this deeply soothing oil in the palm of your hand, gently rub your palms together, bring them towards your face and take a deep inhalation...the benefits of lavender are immediate and obvious! To our knowledge, no one has ever complained about the fragrance of lavender. It is universally loved and almost always appreciated. Diffuse it in your home to help you relax and to refresh the whole family. When you have guests over, their first comments are likely to be compliments on the fragrance of your home. Apply a drop topically to support skin health, including the soothing of insect bites, or apply as part of a cold compress to soothe any specific area of the body. At nighttime, place two drops on a cotton ball and tuck under your pillowcase before bed for an incredible night's rest. Add several drops to warm bathwater to help you relax at the end of a long day. Blend lavender oil with any massage oil and massage into skin to uplift mood and ease head and shoulder tension.
Ayurvedic Wisdom for Lavender Essential Oil
According to the ancient healing system of Ayurveda, lavender essential oil decreases problems caused by Vata, Pitta and Kapha (the biological forces of wind, fire and phlegm). By balancing "wind", lavender oil will assist in slowing down the overly active mind and will support tranquility and peacefulness. By balancing "fire", lavender oil will decrease excess heat in the body and mind and will support clarity and brightness of presence. By balancing "phlegm", lavender oil helps to lighten tendencies toward sluggishness, complacency and melancholy. Lavender is generally mood-uplifting and supports heightened energy.
