Product Abstract: The Lavender plant grows to about one meter in height and produces long thin purple-blue flowers. The entire plant is covered with star-shaped hairs containing oil glands. Differences in soil, altitude, temperature, precipitation, and seasons contribute to subtle changes in the scent from one lot of Lavender to another. Lavender has been used since ancient times, when the Romans added it to their bath water; hence, its name originates from the Latin lavare, meaning 'to wash.'
Cautions: For external use only. Dilute before use. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.
