Aroma: The aroma for the New Zealand Lavender is soft, floral, sweet, and uniquely balanced. It does not have an overpowering powder type smell.
Aromatherapist notes: This oil has a much lower linalol content than other Lavenders, but has a much nicer aroma in terms of its roundness. I actually prefer to use this lavender over a lavender from France due to its aroma. The large amount of ester content in this oil almost instantly allows you to relax as you breathe it in. I tend to use this essential oil more in sleep or anxiety related blends for this reason. It is an exquisitely crafted Lavender oil and a must have for Lavender lovers.
Recommended applications: Diffuse, topical application using safe dilution ratios, steam inhalation, inhaler.
Blends with: Black Pepper, Buddha Wood, Citrus oils, German Chamomile, Roman Chamomile, Clary Sage, Clove, Cypress, Eucalyptus Ironbark, Helichrysum, Alligator Juniper, Sweet Marjoram, Patchouli, Scotch Pine, Rose absolute, Virginia Cedarwood, Vetiver, Ylang Ylang.

Lola’s New Zealand Lavender
A couple of months ago, our good friend, Lola King completed her final inventory for Be Kind Botanicals. It was both a blessing and bittersweet. She worked for close to a decade to provide the best oils she could find, even if it meant processing the plant material herself and having a distiller obtain it through distillation. When Marge heard the news of her closing Be Kind Botanicals, she jumped at the opportunity to snag some of her finest inventory before it was gone for good. We are delighted to present to you our “Be Kind” Collection, so that you can experience what Lola and Marge find to be some of the most exquisite offerings of essential oils from around the globe… New Zealand Lavender may be the top of the list. These are in limited supply and will only be sold in retail sizes.
