Lavender is one of the most beneficial and versatile essential oils in the world today. Hailed for its antioxidant, antimicrobial, sedative, calming and anti-depressive properties, the use of lavender for therapeutic and cosmetic purposes dates back thousands of years.
The Egyptians used lavender for mummification and as a perfume, and when Tutankhamun’s tomb was opened in 1923, there was said to be a faint scent of lavender that could still be detected after 3,000 years. The Romans used lavender oil for bathing, cooking and air purification, and in Biblical times, the oil was used for healing purposes.
It is because of these natural healing and restorative properties that lavender is such a popular ingredient in a wide variety of skincare products. The subtle fragrance is calming and relaxing for the body (which is why it makes such a fantastic ingredient for our Pure Aura: Lavender and Vanilla natural deodorant), but you might also be surprised to learn that it has more practical applications, such as shaving cuts, bruises and easing skin irritations.
Here’s Our 8 Top Reasons to Love Lavender:
We chose lavender as a key ingredient for our first scented natural deodorant, Pure Aura: Lavender & Vanilla, because of its light, pleasant scent, and also the relaxing, restorative and antioxidant properties described above. Pure Aura is now available in Spray formulation, as a Roll On and in a pocket-perfect 50ml Travel size.
