Lavender Duchess was named for the specific type of Lavender essential oil used to the scent, and provide aromatherapy benefits. This lotion contains "Bulgarian Lavender" or Lavendula augustofolia. It is an ancient variety of Lavender historically coveted by royalty. It can be found in every aromatherapists' toolkit today.
Lavender and Royalty
Lavendula Augustofolia has been associated with royalty. It was used by Cleopatra herself to seduce both Julius Caesar and Mark Antony. The Old Testament records that the Queen of Sheba offered lavender (spikenard-the ancient name) with frankincense and myrrh to King Solomon.
A little more recently, the French King Charles VI demanded lavender-filled pillows wherever he went and Louis XIV bathed in water scented with it.
Queen Elizabeth, I required lavender conserve at the royal table and demanded fresh lavender flowers available every day of the year.
This Lavender is Special
Customers often comment that Lavender Duchess smells softer and less "mediciney" than other Lavender products they have tried. Lavendula Augustofolia (Lavender 30/32 or Bulgarian Lavender oil) is considered "the cream of the crop", and as such it is about twice the price of other Lavender essential oils. It has to be distilled in Bulgaria at the peak of the flowering season of the Lavender. As you can imagine it is very precious. This is why Lavender Duchess is more expensive than our other body lotions. You are not likely to find Lavendula Augustofolia in mass-produced brands, or if you do, they are probably using only a small quantity and adding "fragrance" to lessen the amount of the essential oil needed to scent the lotion. That is why it smells different. We use 2% Lavendula Augustofolia by weight in every bottle to ensure you get the experience of royalty and the aromatherapy benefits you are looking for when you buy Lavender products. There is no additional fragrance added. If you are looking for the aromatherapy benefits of Lavender, this is the Lavender used by aromatherapists.
