Kashmir Lavender Essential Oil is a superior oil grown at a high altitude, and it rivals the best French and Hungarian lavenders. Kashmir Lavender essential oil has a more complex aroma that is lush, sweet, and herbaceous.
Kashmir Lavender is grown in the Kashmir Valley of India, particularly at the foothills of the Himalayas. This growing region makes for a much richer harvest and produces a Lavender variety that is much higher in Linalool and much lower in the camphor content. Linalool is the compound responsible for its soothing and relaxing properties for the mind, body, and spirit.
