Native to the mountainous regions of the western Mediterranean, Lavender is thought to derive from either the Latin lavare "to wash" or livendulo referring to it's "blueish" colour. Floral, sweet, herbaceous, feminine.
Native to Australia and Tasmania, Eucalyptus globulus is also commonly known as "southern blue gum". With over 700 different species of Eucalyptus, globulous refers to the "small sphere" like fruit on this stem. Pungent, intoxicating, fresh, menthol, masculine.
Eucalyptol is the strongest and most prominent chemical compound in this variety. Quite volatile, but when used in small doses provides a powerful cooling sensation that we so widely love and benefit from in body care.
