Essential Bliss, Issue #037 -- Make Your Own Essential Oil Recipes
August 01, 2012
What a beautiful, aromatic life we can have using amazing essential oils. Recently, my husband and I visited the south of France to see the Young Living Lavender Farm.
We really do have the best essential oils on the planet. In this photo there are three true lavender flowers and one lavandin flower (the big one!). What an amazing difference! Lavandin is a hybrid, contains camphine compounds and this makes it a possible skin irritant. But the high camphine content also means it can be a great disinfectant. You wouldn't want to get lavandin and true lavender mixed up. True lavender is small, gentle and an amazing skin regenerator. True lavender is gentle enough for babies, burns and minor cuts and grazes. It is one of my favourites for my anti-wrinkle cream (see recipe below).
Yet, due to the low cost of producing lavandin essential oil, (it is so much bigger and easier to produce, therefore 5-8 times more oil) it is often sold routinely as lavender.
My husband and I were so full of gratitude and awe for the essential oils that we use everyday, knowing and trusting they are pure, potent and just as they should be--exquisite gifts from nature.
Enjoy these gifts from nature, ready to heal and nourish our body and spirit. I hope that we can connect soon and share this amazing gift.
Love and peace Jenxx
