French Fine Lavender is Living Libations legendary Lavender gem. This fine floral and refreshing fragrance is distilled by our fourth-generation French Lavender distiller and is celebrated as the intersection of the highest quality oil for the best value. This lavish, lovely Lavender is vastly versatile, regally restorative, and sagaciously sweet.
Botanically, true Lavender offers a benevolent bedrock of balance to body and mind. We offer a triumvirate of lovely Lavenders; our Fine Lavender is a classic French Lavender originally from wild seed. Our high Alpine Lavender is peerless in its powderiness; it is ultra-elegant and has the highest esters for exquisite skin care. And, our Bulgarian Lavender is a polychrest essence, a Swiss Army knife of aromatherapy: always handy, pleasantly practical, and wonderful for, well, everything! Certainly, a trio of all three brings much glee to sensory connoisseurs who enjoy getting to know the soft subtleties of scent and spirit each essence gifts.

French Fine Lavender Essential Oil is fresh and bright, bursting with the energy of organic plants grown from fertile seed, in lieu of other forms of propagation. The plants are grown in the French Alps where the lower air temperature heightens the aromatic oils. The flowers are steam distilled to preserve the exquisite botanical compounds that makes this fabulous essence so fine. Known in France as Lavande population, this special Lavender is grown at 800 meters altitude and is specially certified as AOC, appellation d’origine controllée.
Aromatherapeutically, French Fine Lavender is an elixir for over-exertion, body and mind. It brings comfort to the brain and is a pacifying panacea for tight muscles and tender, puffy skin.
“The large theme that emerges from the totality of Lavender’s therapeutic effects is one where relaxation is balanced by restoration followed by a net regulating effect.”
~Peter Holmes, Aromatica
