As with other plants that have wonderful aromas, Lavender has a long history of use that started with the Egyptians and Phoenicians but can also be traced back to India.

Here at Indigo Herbs we have two fantastic Lavender products, Lavender Essential Oil and Lavender Cut Herbal Tea, which will satisfy both your aromatic sense and palate.

The ancient cultures that grew into powerful civilisations considered plants with rich qualities to be assets to their daily lives. The Egyptians used Lavender as a perfume and in the embalming process where Lavender essence was part of the many chemicals used to anoint the shrouds used in mummification. Highly regarded also by the Greeks, who gave it the name ‘Nardus’, which corresponds with the ancient Syrian city of Naarda. Uses were numerous and there are even Greek references to Lavender curing insanity! Following on to the Roman period is where Lavender became a prized commodity; one pound of Lavender could fetch up to 100 denarii which would have been a full month’s wages for a farm labourer. The common name Lavender comes from the Latin ‘lavare’ meaning ‘to wash’ and derives from the fact that the Romans used Lavender flowers to scent the water of their baths. Since the Romans Lavender has been popular throughout Europe and was a particular favourite of Queen Victoria.

There are three main types of Lavender, English Lavender, French Lavender and Spanish Lavender. From these three there are a multitude of speciality Lavenders that come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Some are for culinary use while others have been specifically bred for their beauty. Generally Lavender grows like a small shrub and can show lots of different leaf shapes, leaf colour and flower structures. Flowers can come in the shade of purple, pink, white and a red coloured variety.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

The Lavender flowers that are used for this product comes from France where they are grown specifically to be used as tea. Cultivated in close proximity, the Lavender plants first reach maturity before they can be cut and dried in semi shade. Only the best prime examples of the flowers are used in our Lavender Cut Tea. Damaged or underdeveloped flowers is disregarded through a process of elimination. The best plant matter is then slow dried out of direct sunlight and tested for pollutants to make sure that you get only the very finest leaf for your tea. This process complies with GMP standards and is quality assured by Indigo Herbs.

Using Aromatherapy in your daily routine is simple, easy and can be enormously beneficial. Pure neat essential oils can be evaporated into the environment and inhaled while products that have already been diluted in an oil can be applied straight to the skin. There are lots of different ways to utilize the pure neat essential oils; these can be made into a room spray or used in an an essential oil burner/ vaporizer.

This is a lovely way to perfume an environment and essential oils are very good at affecting the mood, mind and emotions when evaporated into the air. Adding essential oils to your bath is the best way to ensure the oils are absorbed through the pores of the skin while also inhaling the vapors; maximum benefit can then be had whilst enjoying a soak. Additionally the neat oils can be diluted into a carrier medium. This can be a cream, body butter, face cream, vegetable body oil and bath salts to name a few. For full instructions go to our How to use Aromatherapy page.

Lavender essential oil can be used in the bath, or vaporized in an oil burner. It can be added to a massage oil or cream. Use 6-8 drops per bath and 10 -18 drops per 30ml of carrier oil. See Essential Oil Dosage Chart

Manufacture Process

Our essential oils are manufactured to GMP standards using steam distillation, extraction or expression. During steam distillation the plant matter is put into boiling water or infused with steam. The steam is collected and the oils are separated from the water. During extraction, a solvent is used to extract the oil, by creating a concrete. This concrete is made up of plant matter, resins, waxes, and essential oils. A second solvent, such as ethyl alcohol is used to extract the essential oils from the concrete, this creates an absolute. During expression the plant matter is pressed (at cool temperatures) to release the oils.

Essential oils need to be diluted first; never apply an essential oil directly to the skin. Avoid contact with eyes and mouth. Avoid if you are taking homoeopathic remedies.
