Calming is purple - and smells like lavender. 

Heike Ullmann


Lavandula angustifolia

In ancient Rome, lavender was a popular bath additive.

Its name is derived from the Latin word "lavare" (wash).

If we mentally travel to Provence, to the area that is characterized by lavender like no other in the world, where in summer blooming lavender spreads to the horizon, we understand for what reason lavender is so closely associated with summer,

freedom and relaxation.

Its areas of application are diverse:

In case of nervousness, palpitations, excitement and insomnia, Lavendula augustifolia has a soothing, calming and balancing effect.

A few drops on temples or pillows help us to find sleep more easily.

If we are stressed, it will calm us down, on the other hand, if we are burdened with worries and melancholic, it will invigorate, refresh and build us up.

Lavender oil can both calm and stimulate our nervous system,

depending on what is more important at the moment.

On our soul it has a liberating effect, it gives us clear thoughts and helps us to switch off. This all-rounder can also be used in psychotherapy.

Due to its extremely skin-caring properties, lavender, diluted in base oils, is also often used for skin care and regeneration (for example, after sunbathing).

(for example after sunbathing).

We find lavender oil in perfumes, as fragrance lamp oil and even in cleaning products.

It relieves pain, is diuretic and diaphoretic, has a detoxifying effect,

antiseptic and is said to help heal wounds.
