    Botanical Name: Lavandula officinalis

    Plant Part: Flower

    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.

    I found this oil to be extremely therapeutic and cost effective. I have problems with sleep and relaxing, and just small amounts of this oil diluted and spritzed onto pillows or what-not does the trick for me!
    Good for fragrance, not for therapeutic use
    (Austin, TX, US) | June 14th, 2014
    This lavender oil is very sweet and camphorous which makes it perfect for soap and any other product requiring a relaxing fragrance. Good quality.
    A beautiful scent!

    I was looking for a more floral scent of lavendar and this is it! I will be using this to scent my creations as it has a lighter camphorous and more floral and sweet scent. Beautiful choice for soapers!
    Lavender, like it's supposed to smell
    (Julian, PA, US) | February 21st, 2014
    This one seems to be a nice medium throw for the scent. It's not nauseatingly lavender, and it doesn't have that nasty medicinal undertone that some lavender EO's have. This is probably "the" lavender to buy for scenting products, if you want a nice somewhat floraly scent without the undertone. It does have a light, almost musky undertone. Smells divine with the patchouli to ground it out.

    Great smelling lavender
    (davison, MI, US) | August 7th, 2013
    This is my least favorite of Camden's lavenders but it's still head and shoulders above some of the lavenders other companies offer ( hence the 5 stars). This is a great, yet affordable EO to use in CP soaps.
    Excellent product
    (Brampton, ON, CA) | July 9th, 2013
    I have tried many different brands of lavender eo and I keep coming back to Camden to purchase this one! I use it in my skin creams, liquid soaps and even put a few drops on my kids pillows for them to fall asleep. This is an excellent quality product and the price is right!
    Must Have!

    This lavender is step one to building your essential oils collection.

    Great Lavender
    (Nashville, TN, US) | January 3rd, 2013
    I am new to soapmaking and my customers had a fit over the lavender. It is currently my best selling soap. It is not to strong or to weak of a smell. The smell is just perfect. Thanks Camden-Grey for this product at such a resonable price.

    OUT OF STOCK ISSUES: If a customer orders a large quantity of a product and all of the product is not in stock when the order is entered into our system, once the new stock arrives we will ship separately whatever quantity we may owe the customer. Most of our restocking orders arrive at our warehouse 5-7 business days after we place a restocking order, sometimes sooner. 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.

    EO = essential oil

    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. CARRIER OILS - plastic bottles/pails depending on the size ordered, do not need to be transferred to glass unless you wish to do so. FO's - in plastic containers, contents do not need to be transferred to glass unless you wish to do so.

    Essential oils in sizes from ½ oz. to 4 oz. are dispensed in amber glass bottles without orifice reducers or glass droppers. If we ever run out of amber glass bottles, we reserve the right to use any other glass bottle available at that time. The only sizes of EO's dispensed with orifice reducers are 1/32, 1/16, 1/8 and 1/4 oz. sizes. If you require bottles/vials with orifice reducers or Eurodroppers, we sell those separately.

    HOW TO STORE: Upon receipt, EO's dispensed in plastic bottles MUST be transferred into amber glass bottles. EO's, FO's and BUTTERS should be stored in tightly-sealed containers away from direct light and heat. Many oils could be highly flammable, keep away from open flames.
