Lavender grows abundantly in France, and its blooms lend a lovely purple-blue colour to the sunny hills of Provence during the summer season. This real lavender has an extremely delicate scent and yields the purest of oils. Its medicinal properties come from the different constituents found in the essential oil. Lavender has a sedative action and is recommended in treating nervous states and anxiety. The essential oil also has an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory action.
