Lavender Aspic Essential Oil: Virtues and Uses

What are the properties of Lavender Aspic essential oil?

Lavender Aspic, otherwise known as Spike Lavender, essential oil is a must-have for your medicine cabinet over the summer season: it’s a real magician! Thanks to its soothing, antipruritic and extremely healing properties, it offers relief from stings (insects, jellyfish, plants etc), burns and superficial sunburn.
Its versatile anti-infectious properties (antibacterial, antiviral, antimycotic, antiparasitic), and its respiratory mucus-freeing abilities enable it to treat numerous infections and repel parasites such as mites and lice. You can use it to fight against ENT infections like otitis, sinusitis or bronchitis, as well as skin infections such as acne, herpes labialis, shingles, and eczema. Its analgesic, anti-inflammatory and muscle-relaxing effect will help to reduce pain associated with headaches, muscular cramps and rheumatism of the joints. Its tonic and nerve-balancing properties, are also of great help in the face of physical and nervous fatigue.

  • Anti-infectious: fights microbial infections that cause disease
  • Antipruritic: relieves and eliminates itchy skin
  • Antibacterial: prevents the development of bacteria
  • Antiviral: prevents the development of viruses
  • Antimycotic: treats infections caused by microscopic fungi or yeasts, including mycoses
  • Anti-mite/anti-parasitic : helps eliminate mites and parasites
  • Anti-inflammatory: reduces or eliminates inflammation
  • Analgesic: reduces or eliminates pain without treating the cause

How to use Lavender Aspic essential oil?

Lavender Aspic can be used in its pure form locally, when applied directly on a small area of skin. For repeated application, over a larger area, on children over 7 years old or on sensitive skin, it should be diluted in vegetable oil. For use in the bath, use it diluted in a neutral base specifically formulated for the bath or shower, your shower gel, or in plant milk such as soya or almond.

  • Skin application, massage
  • Bath, shower, shampoo

Be careful, this essential oil is rich in linalool, which is a potential allergen. If you have existing allergies, you should always do a skin test before using.

To do this, pour 2 drops into the hollow of the elbow. Wait 12 hours, check for a reaction, and then repeat the test again.
In case of reaction such as sudden burning, reddening, stinging or itching of the skin, rinse the painful area with a neutral vegetable oil like Jojoba, Sunflower or Olive, and then with clean water.

This S.O.S. action dilutes the essential oil and immediately soothes the pain. If no vegetable oil is available, rinse thoroughly with clean water.

For who is Lavender Aspic contraindicated?

Lavender Aspic essential oil should not be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women as it contains eucalyptol and camphor, and may cause foetal convulsions. Do not use in children under 7 years of age or in people who are allergic to essential oils or to any of the components (geranial, geraniol, limonene, linalool, neral). The essential oil of Lavender Aspic is also not recommended for asthmatics without the advice of an allergist at the time of first use, those with epilepsy or a history of convulsive disorders, in the event of cardiac disorders (hypertension, arrhythmia...). Those with a chronic condition or currently undergoing medical treatment should consult a health specialist before use.

Can I replace Lavender Aspic with True Lavender?

Be careful, one essential oil cannot simply be replaced by another, even if their names are similar. While True Lavender and Lavender Aspic may have certain virtues and indications in common, they have others that are radically different, just like thymol thyme and linalool thyme, ravensare and ravintsara. For example, Lavender Aspic is used for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, whereas True Lavender is know for relaxing and healing.

The difference between these two species of lavender lies in their composition. Although they both contain linalool, Lavender Aspic contains eucalyptol (1.8 cineole) and camphor, whereas True Lavender contains almost none.

While their properties differ due to their composition, both are equally effective for skin problems, muscle contractions, the treatment of lice or to soothe and disinfect a wound. True Lavender is particularly useful for relaxing the body and mind, especially for relieving insomnia, anxiety, irritability, mood disorders and various stress-related symptoms. While Lavender Aspic is your ideal outdoor walking essential to relieve the inflammation and itching associated with insect bites and stings. Each variety of lavender also has its characteristic scent; True Lavender is best known and used as a milder choice.
