The Story

Lavender: Lavandula angustifolia (Mill.)

Why lavender? Long known for its soothing and relaxing qualities, lavender essential oil is the perfect addition to your bedtime blend or for simply winding down after an exhausting day. It will transport you to the rolling lavender fields of Provence, France… the wind kicking up, your nose catches the sweet scent of lavender: a floral-herbaceous and refreshing aroma with a pleasant, balsamic-woody undertone.

Every batch of oil is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and produced without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Additionally, our expert aromatherapists here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally assess all of our oils—using touch, taste, smell, and lab analyses—to ensure that your essential oil is suitable for clinical use and entirely free of adulterants.

Experience

Formulas:

LAVENDER OINTMENT:

Lavender Lavandula angustifolia oil: 25 drops

Bergamot Citrus aurantium var. bergamia oil: 10 drops

Thyme Thymus vulgaris oil: 5 drops

Beeswax: ¼ ounce

Sweet almond oil: 2 ounces

Warm the almond oil over a pot of hot water or in a double boiler. Add the grated beeswax, varying the amount depending on how firm the final ointment needs to be. You can check the consistency by placing 1 teaspoon of the hot mixture into the freezer for five minutes. If it is too stiff, add more lanolin or oil; if it is too thin, add more beeswax. The consistency can be affected by humidity. Add the essential oils. Let the mixture cool until it is safe to handle. Then stir and pour the mixture into sterile jars (stirring ensures that the tincture or essential oil does not settle on the bottom). Let the mixture cool before putting on the lid.

PIMPLE AND BLEMISH APPLICATION

Lavender Lavandula angustifolia oil: 20 drops

Tea tree Australia Melaleuca alternifolia oil: 20 drops

Blend the two oils and store in an amber bottle. Apply with a cotton ball or sterile gauze to the affected area three to four times daily.
