Lavender is a plant that needs no introduction. It is probably the most tranquil scent a person can ever experience. To those who truly believe in the power of aromatherapy, it should be mentioned here that the birth of modern day aromatherapy can be attributed to Lavender. Interestingly, The Indian Institute of Integrative Medicine, Srinagar (erstwhile Regional Research Laboratory) has developed a variety having high oil content and excellent quality profile and is now known as Kashmir Lavender in the international market, due to it being indigenous to Kashmir- whose temperate climate favors its growth. The quality profile of this Lavender (L. angustifolia) is also at par with the international standards and is being used in the Indian market by highly quality, discerning brands including Forest Essentials.
Lavender oil can be used for anything to do with the skin – from bug bites to burns. It is also a wonderful ingredient for a relaxing room surround spray and a calming diffuser oil! Moreover, Lavender oil is one of those few natural ingredients that effectively rids you of dry skin troubles- look for our sheer, light day lotions with the oil of this miracle plant. Its oil also has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that can fight bacteria that cause acne and inflammation. This helps in keeping the cells healthy and boosting their renewal process. I mean is there anything Lavender cannot do?!
