Oh, the virtues of lavender!  Believe it or not, English lavender is native to the Mediterranean, but is grown today in many countries.  The essential oil is distilled from its flowers, which are loved the world over for their beautiful scent.

Lavender is a skincare essential.  Perhaps the best way to describe lavender is "gentle, yet strong."  It promotes healing, soothes, calms, balances, regenerates, and is anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-bacterial and analgesic.   It helps balance sebum production and even skin tone.  In aromatherapy, it is known to calm, soothe and relax.
