Because of its immense popularity, Lavender Essential Oil is one of the most adulterated and synthesized scents today. Even the most astute aromatherapists may have difficulty distinguishing between a Lavender essential oil that is truly alive and one that was created in a lab. The counterfeits have become that good! Many companies are turning to synthetic variations of this deeply healing essential oil to save money, and perhaps, because they do not understand that it is imperative that the user receive an oil that was grown in its indigenous region and harvested at the moment of peek perfection in order to receive maximum healing benefits. Perhaps, they simply don’t understand the importance of testing every vial of every batch of this precious oil to ensure that 100% of the proper, natural chemical compounds are present in the Lavender they are using in their products. And, perhaps, they don’t realize that providing a synthetic to their clients can actually cause adverse reactions to occur. Agape Beauty does understand the magnitude of using only beyond therapeutic grade essential oils that have been tested thoroughly to guarantee purity and potency and that’s what makes our products stand out among the rest. Our products do so much more than just smell good!
Lavender is an essential oil that has been used for millennia and noted for its cleansing and healthful properties. Through modern scientific testing, its time proven properties have been confirmed. There are multiple types of lavender (from different plants) and it is important to have lavandula angustifolia in order to acquire the most chemically potent form of this plant for healing. This specie is more refined and therefore more expensive but has much preferred qualities to use for personal health conditions. The preferred lavender is steam distilled from the flowering tops of plants with some of the finest quality from Europe. The Lavender we chose to use in Agape Beauty products is steam distilled from the flowering tops of plants from France (fine high altitude) and Bulgaria (super high altitude). These are joined together in equal ratios.
We find it continually mind-boggling to read the warning labels and ingredients on many of the “pure” lavender oils we see on the market. Truly pure and thoroughly tested Lavender essential oil should be pure enough to use even on the most sensitive of skin without a carrier oil.
