Why buy Naturally Creative English Lavender Oil?
A good quality therapeutic Lavender oil will have a high level of the ester linalyl acetate. This along with the synergy between the esters and alcohol within the oil defines the quality of it. Because of the demand for Lavender oil it is prone to adulteration by synthetic esters to increase these levels which is almost impossible to detect by the usual GC analysis. Lavender Oil is the bedrock of aromatherapy so we have chosen an English Lavender oil as our oil for its quality and sweet fragrance. The crop is grown locally to Naturally Creative in Kent by a co-operative of growers we know well. The farmers we buy from distill the oil on site so not only is there a low carbon foot print by sourcing so locally, we have developed a close relationship and can visit and watch the harvest taking place.
