Lavender Essential Oil
Experience deeper levels of peace and tranquility with sweet-smelling Lavender Essential Oil. With a gentle floral aroma that’s earthy and grounding, lavender is one of the most popular essential oils due to its holistic healing properties and natural medicinal benefits.

The medium-strength aroma of lavender oil is floral, herbaceous, sweet, and slightly woody. Rocky Mountain Oils’ Lavender oil is steam-distilled from the beautiful flowers of the Lavandula angustifolia plant, sourced directly from the verdant French countryside.
