Lavender: The mother of all essential oils
"To make a perfume, take some rose water and wash your hands in it, then take a lavender flower and rub it with your palms, and you will achieve the desired effect"~ Leonardo da Vinci
Ahh Lavender! A favorite essential oil among massage therapists as it promotes deep relaxation, encourages sleep, and offers many healing properties. Lavender is one of the few oils that is typically safe to apply neat (directly on the skin) but works well with our warmed coconut oil. As a part of the mint family it's lovely blended with peppermint, rosemary, or other floral scents such as rose.
