LOVAGE ESSENTIAL OIL

Botanical Name: Levisticum officianale
Source: South Africa
Method: Steam distillation from certified organic leaves
Notes: Lovage, as its name implies 'Love', is a wonderful oil to use when healing matters of the heart.
Lovage essential oil has a warm, bright, herbaceous aroma with spicy undertones. It is often used as a perfume all alone. Different oils are distilled from the roots, leaves, and seeds of the lovage plant. The aromatic properties of lovage can help to open the heart when one has closed it down, due to being hurt or experiencing emotional abuse. It vibrates with the universal heart chakra. It can help transform old thoughts of “I can not open to your love because it makes me vulnerable to hurt” to “I love you and you do not have to love me back. I know love makes me vulnerable to hurt, and I can handle the hurt if and when it comes.” It can be diffused, inhaled, or applied to the heart center for this purpose.

Observations and Anecdotal Information
Lovage is a medicinal herb that has been used as a digestive aid and culinary flavoring for many generations. It has an affinity for the liver, and is used in liver cleansing (apply directly to the liver with a compress). It has sedative properties and is an emotional relaxant, and helps us claim emotional sovereignty - no longer feeling like our emotions are dictated by everything and everyone around us.
Lovage is an expensive oil and challenging to distill, as it yields only 1% essential oil. However, it is one of those rare friends that add so much to the quality of our lives, so it is growing in popularity.
