This is a 100% pure essential oil of Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia). It has been grown, handpicked and steam-distilled in our herb gardens at the base of Mt Kenya. It is a truly fascinating oil, the Laikipia environment has given it a unique Kenyan signature while retaining its many aromatherapeutic benefits. It has a slightly more camphorous scent as compared to the european lavender.
