As early as 1301, lavender was recorded as a medicinal herb in the physic garden at Merton Abby, Mitchum, a centre for lavender growing in England. One of the oldest English perfumes, lavender is well known for its calming effect. Crabtree & Evelyn uses the finest lavender (lavender angustifolia) to scent our collection for the bath, body, and home.
The luxurious cleansing gel leaves skin feeling soothed, refreshed, and scented with a classic lavender fragrance. It is ideal for a morning shower or added to a warm bath for copious bubbles. Its extracts of lavender, peony, white magnolia, and elderflower, along with glycerine, leave skin cleansed and conditioned. It is free of parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, and mineral oil.
The lavender moisturising lotion for the body is easily absorbed to restore skin's softness and suppleness. It is blended with pure lavender oil and enriched with antioxidant vitamin E.
Founded in 1972 by Cyrus Harvey, Crabtree & Evelyn has evolved from a small, family-run business specialising in fine soaps from around the world to an international company, well known and respected for its original fragrances, luxurious toiletries, gourmet foods and gifts for those who enjoy a sophisticated lifestyle.
