Lavender's aroma is floral, herbaceous, light with woody undertones. Its unique aroma has a calming effect on the user. Soothes the spirit, relieves anger, could be valuable in manic-depressive cases.
The numbers in Lavender 40/42 indicate the linalyl acetate content; in this case, they indicate the product contains 40%-42% of linalyl acetate, a naturally occurring phytochemical found in many flowers and spice plants. Lavender 40/42 is generally a blend of various lavenders in order to get a consistent scent from batch to batch, with processors adding natural linalyl acetate to cover the smell of camphor or borneol components of a given lavender.
Most soapers seem to prefer Lavender 40/42 because it smells the way they believe lavender should smell and it's fairly inexpensive......about half the price of other, more expensive lavenders which are usually reserved for aromatherapy purposes. This is our best selling essential oil for toiletries.
Keeps insects away. Blends well with bergamot, chamomile, citronella, lemon, and pine. Flash point: 156F, OK to ship via air or ocean.

Great Lavender Scent
Everything you would expect in a true Lavender EO. Sticking better than some I've tried. Camden Grey has good FO and EO don't hesitate to buy from this reliable supplier.

I have returned to CG. great lavender 40/42, delivery in a few days-FL to OH. Packaging just right. Enjoy the small sizes of EO's & FO's for assessment.

Can't do without This!
I bought this after seeing so many recipe blends specifically saying 40/42. LAvender blends with so many other oils, you can't work without it. I put it in the majority of my blends because it can help to anchor the top notes. It is not so much like I am a Lavender fan. It is just that the smell works like a foundation for blends. It does not often work against other smells. I use a lot of this. You just have to use a lot of Lavender.

This smells wonderful. I had always purchased the French Lavender but decided to try some of the others. This smells so fresh. I will not hesitate to use it in my next batch of lavender soap I sell at my booth!

It's pretty herby compared to bulgaria or french
I used this is cold process soap and it held very strong in the soap for about 2 months. After that it faded some. It's a decent lavender scent, but there is no way it is as "sweet" as bulgaria or French (I've never used the French in soap--it's too dear and is absolutely LOVELY in lotions). For my personal soap, I really, really prefer bulgaria or at least some bulgaria mixed in with this EO. This has too much of a medicinal/grassy smell for some uses (I would not use it in lotion or shampoo). It's cost effective for soap, but in some ways it lacks the depth and beauty of the Bulgaria or Frendh lavenders.
