Lavender English is a very pale yellow oil with a sweet, floral, warm, and fresh aroma, it is a calming, relaxing, soothing and rejuvenating oil, the smell is less sweet than French lavender.
It is a hardy herb that has a delicate purple-blue flower in spring and summer. Grown in Norfolk, Oxfordshire and Kent (usually) this hardy perennial has been bred to house a proportion of the essential oil glands internally so that harvesting does not affect the majority of the oil. Indigenous to the Mediterranean region but is now cultivated all over the world. The oil is mainly produced in France, Spain and England.
