    Country of Origin: France

    Method of Extraction: Steam Distillation

    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.

    Lavender 40/40
    (Denver) | January 27th, 2020
    I love the smell of this lavender. I’ve used it for years!
    Love these oils!
    (Madison, WI) | January 23rd, 2020
    I buy exclusively from Camden-Grey and have been very happy with their Essential Oils, especially the Lavender 40/42. It stays well in cold process soaps and many of my other products.
    Very Satisfied
    (Florida) | January 18th, 2020
    We have been doing business with Cam Grey since 2003 & have always found their products to be excellent & so is their service all at a fair price. The 40/42 lavender is the best for making massage oils or "craft" items like dream/headache pillows because the scent lasts a long time. We also use the French or Bulgarian fine for aroma therapy & gently scented body oil blends.
    Ive been ordering for years

    Wonderful Essential Oil
    (Jefferson, MD) | December 21st, 2019
    The price for this oil is amazing. I am so thankful for it. I use it for my CP soaps. Could not soap without it. Thanks Camden Grey!
    Great Lavender Scent
    (Newark, DE, US) | December 1st, 2018
    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.
    great products, prompt delivery
    (columbus, OH, US) | September 20th, 2018
    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!
    (Garfield, NJ, US) | April 1st, 2018
    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.
    Smells Divine
    (Gastonia, NC, US) | May 24th, 2017
    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!
    Beautiful Lavender Scent
    (Kaycee, WY, US) | October 12th, 2016
    I am picky about the lavender scent I will use and I have found they are not all created equil. I have used Lavender 40/42 essential oil for the past 15 years in my CP goat milk soap as well as my goat milk lotion. I love the scent as do my customers and Camden-Grey’s Lavender 40/42 is high quality at the best price I’ve found. When my daughter said she wanted to order some and ask for my recommendation as to where to order from I said Camden-Grey. She is now one of their customers as well.

Should the distiller or vendor inform us restocking will take longer than 7 business days, we’ll promptly notify the customer.

    Please note that we do not allow order cancellations for any reason and we don’t allow removal/cancellations of products which become partially or completely out of stock after the customer places an order.

    Raw materials/ingredients are dispensed by weight. Many customers ask how many ounces in a pound, there are 16 ounces in one pound. These are not fluid ounces, they are ounces by weight.

    FO = fragrance oil

    Our containers are filled with products to where our commercial digital scales indicate the container should be filled. Some containers will be filled to the top, some will not.

    HOW OILS ARE DISPENSED: All our products are dispensed by weight. EO's in 8 oz. through 2 lbs. - amber plastic pharmaceutical-grade bottle. EO's in 5 and 10 lbs. - heavy duty plastic container w/pouring spout, the oil may remain inside the container at least 2 months. EO's in sizes of 25+ lbs. - industry-standard metal or plastic can with a pouring spout, the oil may remain inside the metal can indefinitely and up to 2 months in the plastic pail. It's our decision in which type of pail we dispense the product, metal cans are not readily available.
