Lavender Reserve is just that, a reserve. There is only 4kg distilled annually, so supply is limited.
Lavender Reserve comes from the highest areas of Provence, France. There have never been pesticides used in this
Area and the essential oil is grown biodynamically, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biodynamic_agriculture
Lavender is the panacea of French Medical Aromatherapy.
Lavender Reserve can be used for anything our regular lavender is used for – but we recommend “reserving” it for Anti-aging or special uses.
Lavender is extremely safe and can be used directly on the skin and is safe for internal use.
Use Lavender undiluted and on clean skin. When in doubt, use lavender.
Anti-aging - Use Lavender Reserve daily, Am & Pm. Pat 5 drops on face and neck to clean skin. Wait 2 minutes for Lavender Reserve to penetrate. Then add moisturizer.
This lavender reduces large pours, fine lines, wrinkles, redness, acne, but most importantly it restores underlying tissue for a more youthful glow and appearance. This must be used consistently for results. If you are not noticing changes within 2 weeks, add a few more drops to face and neck during treatment. Essentail oils are drying, so make sure to wait 2-5 minutes to get the full effects of the lavender. Then add your moisturizer. For a stronger treatment, add 3 drops of Helichrysum. Both lavender and helichrysum help to break down damaged cells and rebuild healthy new tissue.
Scar treatment and prevention – Lavender is great for facial scar prevention. For maximum benefits, use a mixture of 3 drops each Lavender &Helichrysum and rub on scar area or scab. (wait until scab forms to start applying for scar prevention). Keep using until scar is healed. This does not work on old scars that are more than 1 year old.
How does it work? (alphabetical)
Lavender is a “driver”, meaning it helps to “drive” other essential oils deeper into the skin while providing a secondary benefit to a formula as the “dilution solution” lavender, surrounds the skin cells and protects them so the stronger essential oils – (phenols) can go in and kill the microbes . Also promotes good bacteria.
Antiseptic – prevents infection
Anti- inflammatory – reduces swelling, redness or inflammation
Analgesic– reduces pain
Parasympathomimetic- Helps bring the body from fight or flight to rest and relaxation. Ie. Helps bring the autonomic nervous system from sympathetic to parasympathetic.
Vulnerary – Protects and promotes skin healing, cell regenerative.
