Highland Lavender Organic Essential Oil (Oshadhi) 10ml

Highland LavenderHighland Lavender Organic, Lavandula angustifolia.


Highland Lavender is a pure therapeutic quality certified organic aromatherapy essential oil from France, obtained from the blossoms and plant. Also known as True Lavender, is the most versatile of essential oils. It has a fresh, sweet, soft, floral aroma, and with its soothing, balancing, antibacterial, and antiseptic properties, it should be the basis of every first aid kit.

About Lavender


The amazing Lavender is one of the most versatile essential oils. It sometimes seems as if there is nothing that Lavender can't do! Lavender lifts you up when you are tired; it settles you down when you are anxious; it aids sleep; it relaxes the muscles; when used in a massage blend it balances and emphasises the notes in other oils; it uplifts you when you are feeling down; and it soothes the skin.

Added to all this, True Lavender is one of the safest essential oils, and one that you can put on the skin undiluted. In fact 'modern aromatherapy' really began when Maurice Gattefossé, a french chemist, used pure Lavender oil on his burned hands after a laboratory explosion, and noticed exceptionally quick and complete healing.

Lavender is the glory of aromatherapy, a mother queen to pacify and console, a cooling tonic-relaxer and rescue remedy, a panacea of amazing amplitude, a multiple healer for the heart, the lungs, the digestive tract, a bestower of tranquility and peace.

Lavender oil is extracted mostly from the flowers of the lavender plant, primarily through steam distillation. The flowers of lavender are fragrant in nature and have been used for making potpourri for centuries. Traditionally, lavender essential oil has also been used in making perfumes. The oil is very useful in aromatherapy and many aromatic preparations and combinations are made using lavender oil.

Lavender Oil Uses


There are many recorded uses of lavender oil:

The smell of lavender essential oil is potent for many types of bugs like mosquitoes, midges, and moths. Apply some of the lavender oil on the exposed skin when outside to prevent these irritating bites. Furthermore, if you do happen to be bitten by one of those bugs, the lavender essential oil has anti-inflammatory qualities that will reduce the irritation and the pain associated with bug bites.

Lavender essential oil induces sleep which has made it a common recommendation for an alternative treatment of insomnia. Lavender essential oil has a calming scent which makes it an excellent tonic for the nerves and help calm anxiety. Rub a little lavender oil on your wrists, temples, and sternum. Also, lavender oil supports sound sleep; it’s perfect for catching a quick catnap on the plane or in the car. Put a few drops on your pillow for a restful night.

Diluted in a massage oil, it makes a soothing muscle rub or skin support after a day in the sun. It is gentle enough to use with children (Lavender oil is not a sun protection product). Lavender essential oil is useful for hair care because it has been shown to be very effective on lice, lice eggs, and nits.

  1. Calming - Rub 2-3 drops of lavender oil in your cupped palms, then use the inhalation method to draw the scent all the way into your amygdala gland (the emotional warehouse) in your brain to calm the mind. Then, rub on the feet, temples, wrists (or anywhere) for an immediate calming effect on the body. Great for use in crowded areas like planes or subways to carve out your own personal oasis.
  2. Sleep aid - Again, use the cupping and inhalation method. Then, rub a drop of Lavender oil on your palms and smooth on your pillow to help you sleep.
  3. Bee sting / Insect bite - Put a drop of Lavender oil on a bee sting or insect bite to stop itching reduce swelling.
  4. Minor burn - Put 2-3 drops Lavender oil on a minor burn to decrease pain. Lavender works wonders!
  5. Cuts - Drop Lavender oil on cut to stop bleeding, clean wound, and kill bacteria.
  6. Eczema / Dermatitis -  Mix several drops of Lavender oil with a nut or vegetable mixing oil (coconut, sesame, etc) and use topically on eczema and dermatitis.
  7. Nausea or motion sickness - To help alleviate the symptoms of motion sickness, place a drop of Lavender oil behind the ears or around the navel.
  8. Nosebleed - To stop a nosebleed, put a drop of lavender oil on a tissue and wrap it around a small chip of ice. Push the tissue covered ice chip up under the middle of the top lip to the base of the nose and hold as long as comfortable or until the bleeding stops (do not freeze the lip or gum).
  9. Dry or chapped skin - Rub lavender oil on dry or chapped skin.
  10. Chapped or sunburned lips - Rub a drop of lavender oil on chapped or sunburned lips.
  11. Hay fever - Rub a drop of lavender oil between your palms and inhale deeply to help alleviate the symptoms of hay fever.
  12. Dandruff - Rub several drops of lavender oil into the scalp to help eliminate dandruff.
  13. Cold sores - Put a drop of lavender oil on a cold sore.
  14. Pitta dosha balancing.

Caution:: lavender oil should never be ingested, only topically applied or inhaled through means of aromatherapy or similar activities.

Lavender oil blends well with many other essential oils including cedarwood, pine, clary sage, geranium, and nutmeg.

Essential OilImportant Information


  • Essential Oils are highly concentrated extracts of medicinal plants, very powerful in their effect and should be used with moderation and great care.

Essential oils used for massage - general instructions for dilution


  • If used other than for ambient diffusion, i.e. for massages, essential oils should always be diluted in good quality vegetable carrier oil before applying to the skin (i.e. sweet almond, sesame, jojoba, olive oil, etc.).
  • The standard dilution for adults is 1–3% essential oil, or about 3–10 drops of essential oil in 15 ml (= 1 tablespoon) of vegetable oil (20 drops = 1ml).
  • For children, sensitive skin and during pregnancy the dilution should be 0,5%-1% (1-2 drops in 10 ml).
  • For a full bath use for adults 5–15 drops and 3–5 drops for a footbath. The essential oils should be diluted with some carrier oil, a little cream or honey to help them disperse in the water.

Specific oils requiring higher dilution


  • Essential oils of Clove bud, Cinnamon (leaf or bark), Oregano, Savory, Thyme (thymol and borneol) can irritate the skin, use only highly diluted (0.5%—1% dilution).
  • For sensitive skin care should also be taken with Aniseed, Fennel, Lemongrass, Melissa (Balm), Peppermint, Sage, Wintergreen, and sometimes also Basil, Ginger, Lemon and Bitter Orange (1 - 3 % dilution).

Some precautions


  • These oils (except the citrus oils) should also not be used for children under 2 years and during pregnancy.
  • If pregnant avoid in addition: Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Juniper, sweet Marjoram, and Myrrh.
  • If applying photo-sensitizing essentials oils like Bergamot, Orange, Mandarin or Lemon to your skin (even in dilution) do not expose your skin to direct sun for several hours afterwards (to avoid pigment spots). The furocoumarin free Bergamot is ok.
  • In case of high blood pressure Hyssop, Rosemary, Sage and Thyme (thyme) are contra-indicated; a gentle massage with relaxing essential oils however is very beneficial.
  • In case of Epilepsy do not use the essential oils of sweet Fennel, Hyssop, Rosemary and Sage.
  • If you have a medical condition we recommend that you seek the advice of a Maharishi Ayurveda practitioner or aromatherapist.
