Chemist René-Maurice Gattefossé (1881-1950) wrote his theories of aromatherapy after experiencing the power of lavender oil. In 1910, as the story goes, he burned himself badly in a laboratory accident, and his skin was becoming badly infected. Through his studies, he theorized that lavender oil should heal the infection, and it did. So the story goes.
Over the years, Gattefosse's l'art de l'aromatherapie has evolved into a form of natural perfumery to heal the spirit of its afflictions.
A few years ago, we started sourcing this high quality French Lavender for a local store, and it's gained a bit of a cult following. Rich, bright, camphorous, and creamy, this is one lavender oil you won't want to do without.
Cautions: Highly concentrated essential oil. Dilute before using. As with all essential oils, keep out of reach of children.
