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.

AROMA QUEEN PREMIUM ESSENTIAL OILS
Our very special Premium 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. We have searched far and wide to find the best quality oils - all are 100% pure undiluted plant based oils with no additives, synthetics or preservatives. We do NOT stock 'nature identical' or 'nature blend' oils - these are chemical concoctions of ingredients similar to what is usually found in a plant oil, and as such do not contain the same therapeutic qualities as pure oils.
Our 10ml Premium Essential Oils are packaged in Aromatherapy-safe cobalt blue glass with silver cap, complete with top ID label - a necessity for anyone with more than a couple of bottles in their collection. 4ml precious oils are supplied in a small dropper vial. 50 and 100ml bulk sizes are available for some oils, and are supplied in an amber glass bottle - if you require a bulk size and it isn't listed just send us an email and we'd be happy to give you a quote - contact us at [email protected]

SAFETY & USAGE
As with all essential oils, our oils must be diluted before application to skin, must NEVER be administered internally, and must always be kept out of the reach of children. Some must be avoided when pregnant (see individual listings), and others should not be applied to the skin before exposure to sunlight. Read the top section of each individual oil listing for warnings and contra-indications on that oil, and also head to our 'LEARN MORE' section for a quick introduction to aromatherapy if you are unfamiliar with essential oils. For anyone starting out we'd recommend even a basic introductory booklet on the subject (see our BOOKS section for a selection of booklets and textbooks).
Always remember, Aromatherapy is intended to complement, not replace traditional medicine.
