Love Lavender

There is something very special about lavender. Whether it is the fresh floral slightly woody aroma, the beautifully vibrant violet-blue colour, the amazing healing properties, or it's wonderful ability to make us calm and go right to sleep. Lavender is a plant that has been recognised since ancient times for it's remarkable properties, and has been highly valued in many cultures because of this.

Lavender is an essential oil that is always a joy to work with. Nearly every day I have the pleasure of opening my bottle of lavender essential oil produced in the Provence, and work with it to make my lavender balms for massage and reflexology. These include lavender vegan reflexology balm and my arnica calendula balm for deep tissue massage (lavender is a wonderful oil for muscular aches, pains, joints and sprains). 

Lavender is generally regarded as the most versatile of essential oils and has been used by people for millennia. Our word Lavender finds it origins in Roman times, and comes from the Latin word 'Lavare', which means 'to wash'. In reflexology and massage lavender is mainly used for it's calming and relaxing properties, as well as for its ability to soothe and heal stressed and damaged skin.

When you work with Flying Wild lavender balms in your treatments, you will give your clients a soothing calming experience that will perfectly complement your massage or reflexology treatment.

Flying Wild balms for reflexology and massage are handmade in Ireland with certified organic ingredients, and are available in 250ml compostable EcoPots.
