Lavender Guide: Angustifolia, Reserve & Spike


Sinus Formula & Respiratory Support

Whether it’s pesky allergy time or cold and flu season, our noses and respiratory systems can always use a little extra care. Formulated with essential oils and olive oil, Sinus Formula soothes the area around the nostrils while promoting deep, clear breathing. Try one of the applications below and enjoy some much needed relief! Direct Treatment: Using a small cotton swab, apply formula directly to nose area and just inside the nostrils. For extra sensitive skin try diluting with a gentle carrier oil. Neti Pot: Mix 1 tsp sea salt, 1/4 tsp baking soda, 2 cups distilled or boiled (then cooled!) water and 1-4 drops Sinus Formula in a carefully cleaned neti pot. Standing over a sink, tip your head to the side and breathe through your mouth as you pour the mixture into your upper nostril and let it exit out through your lower nostril. Repeat on the other side. Aromatic Rub: Sinus Formula can also be used as an aromatic rub! Use straight-up or dilute with a carrier oil, massaging into neck, chest and nose area. Take a few moments to breathe deeply after applying. What about diffusion? The reason we typically do not recommend diffusing Sinus Formula is because it contains olive oil. When a fatty oil is diffused small fat particles are sent into the air. These can cling to surrounding surfaces, potentially causing a mess. If you’re looking for essential oils to diffuse for respiratory support, try our Immune Defense Solution, Winter Trees Blend (seasonal), Purity Blend or Strength Blend. Article by: Hanna Stensgaard

Lavender Guide: Angustifolia, Reserve & Spike

Lavender Angustifolia, Reserve Lavender, Spike Lavender, oh my! Have you ever wondered why we carry three different Lavenders, or which you should be using? Here’s a little guide for differentiating between these amazing oils. While Lavender Angustifolia, Reserve & Spike are all technically Lavender, each is the product of a different growing environment. As a result, each variety has its own unique set of properties. Weather, soil, temperature, precipitation and elevation all influence the plant’s chemical profile. Lavender Lavandula angustifolia Source: Provence, France Altitude: 3,600 ft. Personality: Balancing & soothing Scent Profile: Fresh, herbaceous & floral Aromatic Family: Ester, Monoterpenol About: The panacea of essential oils, Lavender Angustifolia is also known as True Lavender. This oil has a rich history of promoting calm & relaxation. Apply to minor burns, bites, bruises and blemishes. Lavender Reserve Lavandula angustifolia Source: Provence, France (High Alps) Altitude: 5,250 ft. Personality: Gentle & calming Scent Profile: Delicate, sweet & floral Aromatic Family: Ester, MonoterpenolThe most gentle of our Lavenders, Reserve is especially suited for skincare and perfumery. Grown biodynamically high in the French Alps, only a very small amount is produced each year.   Spike Lavender Lavandula spicata Source: Spain Altitude: 2,000 ft. Personality: Stimulating & medicinal Scent Profile: Fresh, herbaceous & medicinal Aromatic Family: Monoterpenol Oxide Grown in the hot, dry Spanish desert, Spike Lavender is distinct due to higher levels of camphor and cineole. Ideal for promoting mental clarity or supporting the immune and respiratory systems. Also great applied to minor bites & stings. Did you know? Blending Spike Lavender with one of our French Lavenders produces a synergetic result. By combining Spike’s stimulating properties with French Lavender’s calming influence, the skin’s natural healing process is supported from all angles. Apply directly to the skin or dilute in a carrier oil. Available Now! You can find all three of our Lavender varietals in our Lavender Kit at an exceptional value.
