Lavender essential oil

I love Neal’s Yard essential oils and lavender is the one oil I use the most, the smell is divine

Faybianne W.
Lavender Essential Oil

Having used lavender Essential oil for many years as a qualified holistic therapist,
I now only purchase from Neil’s Yard as the aroma is so rounded and natural and so different from other notable brands. It immediately helps for mood, relaxation and different therapies. An essential in my tool box for everyday remedies

Just what I'd been looking for

I decided to buy from Neal's Yard because I knew the purely of their essential oils would be spot on. The lavender oil smells divine and is a great all-rounder. At the moment I'm mostly using it in my electric mister to bring calm to my living room. A little goes a long way and I felt it was reasonably priced.


Consistently good quality

Beautiful oil

I have been purchasing this over and over, have tested other brands just to see but came back as nothing compares.
