Our High Altitude Lavender is the most powerful version of lavender we've ever sampled. With unusually high levels of key constituents, it stands as one of the most effective lavenders on the market for its anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anticoagulant, antimicrobial, and antitoxic properties.

Linalool is a naturally occurring terpene alcohol found in lavender that is known for its calming, anti-anxiety, and anti-inflammatory properties. While high linalool content enhances these benefits, it can also be an allergen for some individuals. Our High Altitude Lavender, with the highest linalool content among our offerings, provides the strongest therapeutic effects but may not be suitable for those with lavender sensitivities.

Comparison with Other Lavender Oils:

  • New Zealand Lavender: With a linalool content of about 14%, it is generally well-tolerated by those with lavender allergies. It offers a milder scent and is ideal for sensitive skin.
  • Bulgarian Lavender: Contains around 30% linalool, offering a balanced blend of potency and gentleness, making it suitable for general use.
  • High Altitude Lavender: The highest in linalool at 37-38%, this oil is the most robust and potent, perfect for those seeking maximum therapeutic benefits.

Aroma Profile: High Altitude Lavender carries a deep, powerful scent that is less sweet and more bold compared to our other lavender offerings. It provides a rich, intense fragrance that reflects its high concentration of active constituents.

Usage: Lavender is one of the most versatile and commonly used essential oils due to its wide range of applications and pleasant scent. It is renowned for soothing burns, insect bites, headaches, and anxiety while invigorating the senses. High Altitude Lavender's robust profile makes it particularly effective in these applications.
