The real lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), like rosemary and sage, also belongs to the mint family (Lamiaceae). Lavender is a classic Mediterranean plant that occurs wild, particularly in the coastal region of the Mediterranean. In the summer months, the subshrubs shine in a delicate to strong purple. The popular plant is now cultivated primarily in France, England, Morocco and the USA. The valuable lavender oil is finally obtained through a distillation process.


The active ingredients contained in lavender oil include, for example, linalyacetate, linalool, camphor, flavonoids and triterpenes . Important components of lavender oil that have been well-studied in relation to human health are linalyl acetate and linalool, which have the common property of acting very quickly in the human organism. Linalyl acetate has positive effects on our psyche as it calms the central nervous system and thus has a balancing effect on inner restlessness, nervousness, difficulty falling asleep and stress. Lavender oil has also been proven to have pain-relieving properties, which is why it is also used as a remedy for headaches and migraines. Lavender oil was a must in our mouth spray.
