If you’re looking to learn about different essential oils, then you’re in the right place! Read below to find out more about Lavender Bulgarian essential oil and its many wonders.
Lavandula angustifolia is steam distilled to produce an essential oil that has a fresh, sweet, and herbaceous aroma. This middle note oil blends well with Bergamot, Black Pepper, Cedarwood, Chamomile, Clary Sage, Clove, Cypress, Eucalyptus, Geranium, Grapefruit, Juniper, Lemon, Lemongrass, Mandarin, Marjoram, Oakmoss, Palmarosa, Patchouli, Peppermint, Pine, Ravensara, Rose, Rosemary, Tea Tree, Thyme, and Vetiver.
As the name suggests, this variety of Lavender comes from Bulgaria. This type, along with Lavender French, is widely renowned for its diverse properties. Lavender Bulgarian is considered the highest quality essential oil and is best used in Aromatherapy. Gentle enough for the most sensitive skin or children, this oil makes a good addition to almost any household’s arsenal of oils. For young children, you can combine Lavender with a gentle carrier oil like Coconut or use in a diffuser to help ease whooping cough or colic. Adults can relieve the effects of nausea, asthma, allergies, or labor pains. Women can use it to help lessen menstrual cramps as well. Not only is this oil physically relaxing, but mentally as well. Use it in a shower steamer to help ease anxious feelings and promote relaxation (combine with Eucalyptus for an extra dose of respiratory relief). For this effect, you can also try Anxious Blend, which combines the soothing properties of Lavender with Bergamot, Bitter Orange, and Clary Sage.
