Our lavender swirl natural bar soap exudes the strong, natural lavender properties by blending French Lavender and Lavandin – lavandula angustifolia mill. (l. officinalis chaix) (compacta cultivar); lavandula x hybrida rev. (l. angustifolia miller x l. latifolia medikus) with Spanish spike lavender – lavandula latifolia (l.) medikus (l. latifolia vill.) fam. lamiacea.
What does all of this Latin mean? That Splendid Bee has formulated a beautiful lavender essential oil blend for two natural bar soaps. The sweet French Lavender notes are balanced by the less floral, more herbal, Lavandin and Spanish Spike Lavender.
Lavender flowers have long since been used to treat digestive problems, insomnia, anxiety, and restlessness. Until World War I, lavender was used to treat and disinfect wounds. For centuries, English farmers would place lavender flowers in their hats to prevent headache and sunstroke. Today, lavender is most commonly used for anxiety, depression, mental exhaustion, insomnia, burns, scrapes and wounds, digestive problems, headaches, skin problems and women’s health problems.
