Grown in the Kashmiri Valley of India, located at the base of the Himalayan mountains, lavender from Kashmir. Grown at high altitudes, it is especially high in linalool content, which is considered to be the element responsible for its soothing and calming properties. It is also lower in camphor, which makes it better for sleep, relaxation, anxiety and pain relief, but likely not as effective for antiseptic use. Because of the relatively small growing area, Kashmir lavender is much rarer than other types of lavender essential oil.
