"Like a perfect flux of bass, mid, and top notes that evoke a full spectrum of emotion at the symphony, lavender too, is comprised of a blend of fragrant bass, mid and top notes, enrapturing us like no other herb."
The Chinese Dance from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite
is an iconic piece of music. Bassoons’ lumbering, heavy, bass notes call out; piccolo and flutes echo back with a top-noted flit and flutters and; then are blended masterfully with warm, legato mid notes from violins and clarinets. We are moved, we are pleased and we cheer!

Three Notes and Infinite Combinations
Lavender is very complex with over 100 natural chemical constituents (most plants have only 12-20). The more than 450 named lavender varieties represent mind-boggling combinations of aromatics, with the molecular size of each chemical determining the nuance of fragrance. Bigger molecules produce a heavy, bass “note”; medium sized molecules a mid “note” and the smaller ones a top “note”. A piccolo-like fresh and light top note lavender essence is first to greet us accompanied by a bass note that lingers over time like a bassoon’s haunting moan, repeating the “lavender tune” again and again. Like violins and clarinets pulling it all together, lavender’s warm, inviting mid notes meld a perfect blend. Sweet & herbaceous - floral & woodsy - lavender is the most versatile therapeutic essence, attracting both women & men.
