New Zealand (NZ) Lavender: Lavandula angustifolia (Avice Hill)
Why NZLavender? This unique variety of low-linalool lavender essential oil is ideal for those with sensitive skin (linalool is listed as an allergen by the European Commission). NZLavender still produces the same blissful and cleansing effects of traditional lavender oil, but with its low-linolool and camphor content, is gentler and more suitable for those with delicate skin.
Quality Assured: NZLavender essential oil is produced in New Zealand without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or genetic modification. 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 use and entirely free of adulterants.
