Lavender and other
aromatic and medicinal plants along with their extracts have been used throughout
history and form part of our common heritage. Their benefits have been proven
over thousands of years.
Today, under European
regulations, these natural products have been placed in the same category as
man-made chemical products and as such they are subject to restrictions which
in practice make it impossible to continue their use.
The only ones to benefit
from this situation are the chemical industries who will have free reign to
substitute their synthesised chemical products for the natural products. This
will be detrimental to consumers’ health and at the cost of the disappearance
of rural and agricultural lands.
Don’t let them get
away with this!
Help us to defend the
cause and save these plants and their uses. By signing this petition, you will
contribute to the preservation of natural products, those who cultivate them,
and the environment they are cultivated in.
