Loved it, so smooth and fresh, loved that it did not have that strong camphor scent. So lovely, thumbs up too organic, wonderful customer service, package arrived perfectly. Will be ordering again. Thanks Pompeii Organics.
I find lavender to be most useful for it’s SEDATIVE and SKIN-HEALING properties: Cuts, burns (including sunburn), insect bites, inflammation, rashes, nervous conditions, insomnia, dermatitis, and eczema. My favorite use for lavender (lavandula angustifolia) is in a diffuser. If you have restless nights or have stress add a few drops to a diffuser or make a spray to mist over your bedding. Lavender is mood elevating and uplifting while at the same time is calming to the central nervous system.

I love this lavender oil and all of the oils I've purchased from Pompeii. Their customer service is really fantastic and the staff is so responsive and helpful. I highly recommend Pompeii's oils.
I love this Lavender Essential Oil. Coming from the big MLM companies to Pompeii Organics has been a real rewarding experience. No membership required to purchase oil here:). These oils are high quality and the fact that each bottle is so properly labeled, and to go the extra mile they even place a label on top of the bottle:) I love direct access to the gc/ms test too! I will continue to promote this company. Connie, Wakeman, Ohio
i usually find true lavender a bit too sweet and fruity for my taste but I do really like this one, it's good and complex.
I go through Lavender like teenage boys through food. I have many different sizes and brands on stock at all times but this is by far the best Lavender aroma bar none. My clients have even made some comments that the lavender is something special, keeping in mind I've only been using the Lavender for week so they picked up on it pretty fast. I know where the bulk of my Lavender will be coming from from now on.
