AQ Essential Oil - LAVENDER BULGARIAN
LAVENDER BULGARIAN - IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ
Many Bulgarian Lavenders (including this one) differ from French Lavender in scent in that they have a sweeter, fruitier, deeper fragrance - rather than the light, crisp camphoraceous scent you usually experience with Lavender from France. Some say it is closer in scent to the fresh flower than other types. Bulgarian Lavender is believed to be particularly effective in helping to reduce stress and treat anxiety and depression easily and effectively.
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) - Bulgaria. Lavender has been used since ancient times as much for its perfume as for its medicinal properties. Romans added Lavender to their bath water, hence its name derived from 'lavare', to wash. Herbalists regard lavender as the most useful and versatile essential oil for therapeutic purposes. Without a doubt if one were to choose only a single essential oil to keep in the first aid kit, Lavender would be the undisputed choice. It is well known for its nervine - sedative properties, and is useful for treating a variety of nervous and psychological disorders including depression, insomnia, migraine, nervous tension, hysteria and paralysis. As a sedative - analgesic it is very good for headaches and migraines. Lavender is often diffused in hospital wards to help dispel anxiety and aid sleep.
Its antiseptic properties make it ideal for treating coughs, colds, catarrh, sinus, flu, wounds, ulcers and cystitis. Being a good antispasmodic it can be used to manage asthma; bronchitis responds well to Lavender in massage and inhalations. Lavender is helpful in the treatment of all types of pain - rub a drop onto the temples to treat headaches; use in a bath or massage for muscular pain and rheumatism. Lavender has both a sedative and a tonic action on the heart; it will help lower blood pressure and ease nervous tension and palpitations, while it has a stimulating effect for those with a weak heart, shortness of breath or cold extremities. As an emmenogogue Lavender is good for scanty menstruation, and may be used for period pains. One of the safest essential oils to use for children. Commonly associated with treating burns and healing the skin; will also ease the pain and prevent infection. Has a balancing effect on the skin and can be used in general skincare for all types of skin, as well as in the treatment of dermatitis, exzema, psoriasis, boils and acne.
AROMA QUEEN PREMIUM ESSENTIAL OILS
Our very special Premium Essential Oils Range is for anyone who appreciates quality: top grade oil & plant species, sought after country of origin, as well as many unusual, exotic and hard to find oils - but without the 'luxe' pricetag. Since 2005 we have focused on sourcing the best quality oils - all Aroma Queen Essential Oils are 100% pure and undiluted single-source plant based oils with no additives, synthetics, fillers or preservatives.
We do NOT stock 'nature identical' or 'nature blend' oils, which are generally reconstituted concoctions of chemical ingredients similar to those found in a pure plant oil, and as such do not contain the same therapeutic qualities as pure oils - usually those are only good for scent.
Our oils come from the one plant type, from a single country of origin, as outlined at the top of each listing. The reason we are able to offer them at such great value is because we buy direct, and then sell directly to you - we are not part of a larger franchise where every level along the way needs to add a percentage in profit, and only sell via our website to avoid added costs. The result is high quality oil at the right price. CLICK HERE to see our full range of oils and aromatherapy accessories.

Many precious oils are available in a 4ml vial, and some common oils are available in a 2ml sample vial, so you can directly compare them to other oils in your collection.
