One can never have too many lavender varieties in their collection! This Folgate variety of English Lavender has a clean, fresh, herbaceous aroma along with a subtle sweet and floral sultry side. It is distilled in Great Britain distinctly from the flowering tops of organically grown lavender grown organically with very little lavender stalks and leaves. It should be emphasized that this type of lavender distillation is less common, and the aroma is absolutely our favorite!
English lavender yields an essential oil that is high in linalool and Terpinen-4-ol (11.14% compared to 1-2% in the French and Bulgarian types we offer) making it the lavender of choice for antiseptic, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory skin care applications. A remarkable Lavender for bath and body, massage, skin care, aromatherapy or natural perfume. Effective for home first aid kits, use on bug bites or bee stings. This lavender is gentle on irritated skin. Lavender lifts the mood and calms the spirit.
