Like stepping on fresh morning hay as a hint of nearby honeycomb envelops you in a golden cloud.


The emerald green color of this exquisite nectar is as captivating as its warm, soft aroma. Lavender Absolute captures the sweet soft notes of fresh lavender, from amethyst buds to emerald stems. The extraction process picks up the vibrant green color of the stems along with the fresh aroma notes of the flowers, mirroring the entire botanical composition. Much softer than the essential oil, Lavender Absolute is a treasure for the nose as much as the eyes.

  • For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of reach of children.
  • Skin sensitization: moderate risk (Tisserand, Robert and Rodney Young. Essential Oil Safety, 2nd ed., 2014)
  • If essential oils come into unwanted contact with skin or mucous membranes, a traditional method for mitigating this is to douse the area in a fatty/carrier oil. Common kitchen oils like olive oil are effective. Essential oils are lipophilic, meaning they love oils and fats. This is why they are drawn to the fatty/carrier oil. They are also hydrophobic, meaning they hate water. For this reason, putting water on the skin will push the essential oil further into the skin.
