Lavender Wild, Lavender vera (True Lavender) essential oil has an exquisite sparkling fresh sweet aroma bursting with the complexity of rich herbaceous and floral notes. Lavandula vera growing wild in France does so at elevations above 1200m and is also known as True Lavender because it is considered the original type of lavender. What once grew wild in abundance has over time been replaced by cultivated crops and hybrids. Lavender Wild is a rare and special oil because the arduous task of climbing about mountainsides to harvest by hand and transport in a sheet tied to one's back is truly a labor of love performed in small batches by a mere handful of artisan distillers.
A remarkable Lavender for bath and body, massage, skin care, aroma-therapeutic or natural perfume. This is a very relaxing type of lavender highly recommended for combating anxiety. If you prefer Lavender with a perky camphor zing see our Lavender Spike
essential oil, or, for a deep rich floral lavender with a bold side see our Bulgarian High Altitude Lavender
