Due to the higher concentration of linalool in high altitude French lavender, it is the ideal essential oil for relaxation and stress relief. And just so you know, the high altitude French Lavender just happens to be the one offered by Ancient Healing Oils, the supplier for our goddesses. They never cease to make us proud. Anyway, I’m not going to waste time with a lot of talk, let’s get right to the recipes.
High altitude French lavender recipe number 1:
No Stress Scents Diffuser Recipe
- 1/4 cup Canola Oil
- 1 tbsp 100 proof Vodka
- 10 to 12 Diffuser Reeds
- 1 tsp (5 ml) High Altitude French Lavender Essential Oil
Fill bottle about 3/4 full with your essential oil(s), canola oil (sweet almond, jojoba also work well) and vodka. Stir or shake gently, add reeds and you’re almost done.
After the reeds are saturated, turn them over so the dry end is in the bottle. Wash your hands after handling the oil soaked ends of the reeds.
High altitude French lavender recipe number 2:
Calming Scent Linen Spray
- 1 cup 100 proof Vodka
- 8 to 12 oz (237 to 355ml) spray bottle (fine mist)
- 1 tbsp (15 ml) high altitude French Lavender Essential Oil
Pour ingredients into spray bottle and shake well.
Note: Also, avoid spraying your linen mist on furniture, your skin and/or into food or beverages.
It’s really easy to make wonderful spa products at home. They have all the therapeutic benefits of expensive commercial products without the added chemicals. The high altitude French lavender essential oil is one of those wonderful oils to add to your must have list. Don’t buy an abundance of this oil unless you’re sure you’ll use it up. That actually holds true for most essential oils. Though lavender oils have a relatively long shelf life of about two years, the oil can begin to oxidize after six months or so. When oils oxidize, they change chemically. Linalool, one of the major constituents in all lavender oils, can cause a higher incidence of skin irritation as the oil oxidizes.
Now go have fun and relax.
