First Botany Bulgarian 100% Natural and Pure LAVENDER Essential Oil REVIEW

pure lavender oil, how to test essential oils, lavender essential oil review

                Although I have used hair products that contained lavender oil in the past, this is my first time reviewing 100% pure lavender oil. This product was sent to me to review for FREE. My opinions are 100% pure also. They are not tinted by the fact that this product was given to me.  My first impression of the oil is that it was not purple. Can you believe this? I always had this weird idea in my head that lavender oil was a purple oil. I had no idea  it was an essential oil either. I thought it was more like the oil called "liquid gold". Now forget about all my ignorance and get ready to learn a few things about lavender oil, because I did my research!

 How First Botany Describes the product 

Bulgarian Lavender oil is known to be a source of solutions to a lot more than the above household uses. Lavender oil is a must in any complete essential oil selection, for aromatherapy, massage, skin care, relaxation, and more. 
  • VERSATILE USES OF OUR LAVENDER OIL: Lavender Oil is highly effective in treating depression, stress, and anxiety, making it perfect for use in diffusers. It is also beneficial for headaches, migraine relief and as a sleep aid. Lavender Oil is one of the few natural remedies for reducing signs of aging.

Testing the purity of the oil on a piece of paper

the best way to test essential oils
           *The best way to test if your essential oil is pure is by squeezing a few drops of the oil on a white sheet of paper. If the oil does not evaporate with 24 hours or less, the oil is mixed with a carrier oil. OR SOMETHING!!!!*
My opinion

             Now that we know that the oil is in fact 100% pure, let's see how good it is for everyday use!  My first impression of the product was the packaging and how big the bottle was.  I received the product in perfect condition. Everything was nicely wrapped and secured. I expected to smell the lavender scent as soon as I opened the bottle, but that did not happen. This oil does not smell like the lavender scent you get from your beauty products because it is highly concentrated. The oil smelled different at first, then after a few seconds I was able to smell the lavender. The smell lingered when I ran a test on my skin (don't try this at home). This oil is a little bit different from other essential oils that I have used before. This lavender oil is a little bit oily compared to other essential oils that I have used in the past and currently using. It does not evaporate as fast as tea tree oil, but it did evaporate in less than four hours. I find it to be very soothing. I used it in my hand scrub and it worked very well at removing dirt and keeping the skin moisturized and rejuvenated. I also used a few drops in my bubble bath. It was very relaxing. I felt so much better the next day. My overall well-being was better. If you want to have the best sleep of your life, have somebody massage your back with a mixture of castor oil and lavender oil. This oil is such a great muscle relaxer when mixed with a carrier oil. Did you know that lavender oil is good for crankiness? Experience is the best teacher. I squeezed a few drops on a clean wash cloth and sniffed it. I felt very nice a few minutes later. This oil should be illegal, I tell ya!

  • Nicely packaged
  • So much in the bottle for the price
  • 100% pure
  • Comes in a dark glass bottle with a glass dropper
  • Great for DIY beauty products, Home remedy, and housekeeping
  • Works as promised
  • none

The bottom line
            This oil definitely worked for me. I don't like it too much when I cannot find something negative to say about a product. I love the fact that it comes in a dark glass bottle, which helps preserve freshness. A little bit goes a long way with this product. A 4 fl. oz. bottle will probably last me a lifetime. Okay, I am exaggerating a little! Between my DIY beauty products, laundry, cleaning the house, and home remedy, this bottle will probable last me until the end of the year.

            Have you used lavender oil before?
