The Benefits Of Using Lavender

As our favourite evening ritual, the lavender bath is a welcome addition to any beauty routine. Fields of blue-gold lavender grow around Provence, their relaxing scent bursts into the air as you walk through them. L’OCCITANE uses fine lavender that carries the P.D.O. (Protected Destination of Origin) label – a guarantee of quality and traceability.

1. Stress-Busting Suds

Work stressing you out? Don’t worry, we have you covered! Lavender oil has been proven to invigorate your overall mood, combat stress, and relieve muscle tension.

A Lavender Foaming Bath will wash away your worries, and replace them deep relaxation. To enjoy all its benefits, dilute 15 drops in your bath water or add 5 drops to a neutral carrier oil, then apply to the body.


2. Enhance Your Shine

Our PDO Lavender Oil contains properties that help you live your best life! For over 2,500 years lavender has been used for its anti-bacterial properties, which can help relieve chapped lips and dry skin.

But lavender oil’s benefits go far beyond the nervous system and complexion. Using it in your bath can improve blood circulation, and a few drops into the roots of your hair will work wonders for its resilience and shine.


3. Sleep Deep

Running a lavender oil bath can be especially beneficial right before bedtime. It promotes feelings of relaxation and drowsiness, and helps you fall asleep quickly.

Another way to achieve a deeper sleep is with our Relaxing Pillow Mist, just spray it 15 minutes before you climb into bed. This will allow the scent to linger throughout your sleeping hours. Deeper sleep is essential for your body to rest and repair, and you will feel fresh and invigorated the following morning.
