Calm Your Senses with Lavender

Did you know there are 47 different species of lavender? In ancient times, this member of the mint family was burned as incense to the deities and used to perfume bath water. Associated with spiritual love, lavender stimulates our emotional centers and reprograms the mind, making it one of the primary essential oils for inducing peace and calming the emotions. Here’s why we love lavender as an essential calming ingredient in our products:

Lavender oil is adaptogenic in nature, meaning that it normalizes both dry and oily conditions of the skin, scalp and hair. You know how the scent of lavender soothes and calms you down? It does the same thing for your hair by balancing the scalp. Anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and skin regenerative, it is also great for sensitive and mature skin. Lavender reduces flakiness and dandruff, decreases inflammation and may even prevent hair loss by improving blood circulation to the scalp.

Native to the Old World but found all over the globe, lavender is extracted from the flowers of Lavandula angustifolia. We source our lavender from the beautiful Balkan nation of Bulgaria.
