Beautiful all rounder

This lavender oil is so fresh and fragrant, I use it in my burner and in the plain neals yard body oil for massage, it’s wonderful.

Pure relaxation in a bottle!

Two drops of this beautiful oil in my bath at night and I feel totally relaxed and sleep like a baby. The smell is divine! Please don’t ever stop making this Neals Yard!

Lovely Lavender

This is my favourite of the lavender essential oils because I love the smell. The Neils Yard one is particularly good quality in my experience and always helps me to get back to sleep when needed.

Great product - smells amazing!

This lavender oil smells different to the other lavender oils I’ve tried but exactly as I’d expect English lavender to smell. It’s my favourite out of all the Neal’s Yard lavender oils.
