    English Lavender

    Lavandula, most commonly known as English lavender, though not native to England, is a genus of 47 known species of flowering plants in the mint family, Lamiaceae. Our English Lavender grows in Cornwall fields. It has a strong scent that is slightly grassy and floral.

    Originated in the Mediterranean Sea, Southern Europe, Africa and South Asian countries, the oil of this plant is widely used to treat anxiety, depression, sleep issues and skin treatments including acne and eczema. The main constituents of lavender are linalool, linalyl acetate, 1,8-cineole B-ocimene, terpinen-4-ol, and camphor. However, the relative level of each of these constituents varies in different species. These compounds are believed to stimulate GABA, a relaxing neurotransmitter that is required for a quiet night of restorative sleep.
