  • Extraction method: Solvent extraction
  • Lavender Absolute is obtained by solvent extraction, whereas regular Lavender oil is obtained by steam distillation. The solvent extraction method involves agitating the flowers in a solvent such as hexane. This isolates the aromatic compounds as well as pigments and wax. The extracts then undergo vacuum processing to remove the solvent, leaving a wax-like material known as the ‘concrete’. This is mixed with alcohol to dissolve the aromatic compounds, leaving behind the wax and other substances. Low-pressure evaporation is then used to remove the alcohol which yields the final Lavender Absolute.

    Lavender oil is a valuable, therapeutic essential oil and is of great benefit on both a physical and emotional level. It is a calming, relaxing, balancing essential oil which is useful for treating stress, anxiety and mood swings. It is also ideal for use before bed to help with night time awakenings and insomnia. 

    Lavender essential oil has long been known for its beneficial effect on the immune system and its antiseptic, skin-healing and pain-relieving properties. Lavender oil has a restorative, tonic effect and is a popular aromatherapy oil for relieving head tension and for therapeutic blends for the joints and muscles. This versatile, aromatherapy oil is also prized for its fragrance and is a popular ingredient in many perfumes and cosmetic products.
