    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.

    The ideal Lavender
    (Eagle River, AK, US) | February 23rd, 2012
    We love this Lavender! It has the perfect blend of sweet floral and just the slightest "bite" of camphor to it. Even people who say they don't like Lavender LOVE our soaps made with it. It handles high heat exceptionally well, and blends with just about everything.
    Best Lavender essential oil I have found!
    (Reed city, MI, US) | February 12th, 2012
    I have been making soap for 8 years and this Lavender essential oil is THE BEST I have found. I wear it on my body as perfume, I put it in my kids baths and I use it in soaps, lotions and body sprays. I can't get enough of it!! Thank you Camden Grey for taking the time and caring about the quality of your products.

    Have been ordering this for years now. Highly recommend it!
    Strong in a Good Way!
    (Fort Washington, MD, US) | November 22nd, 2011
    The oil that I received has a very strong scent which I wasn't crazy about at first sniff. However, I was pleasantly surprised and found that it mixed well with salts and soaps. The scent holds well and also mixes well when used sparingly in facial masks.
    Lavender for sweet dreams
    (clover, SC, US) | October 18th, 2011
    I get so many complements on my soap when I use this Lavender 40/42. I use dried lavender petals in the soap and can't keep it in my shop! One of the favorites! THANK YOU!
    A multitude of benefits in one bottle!
    (Lorain, OH, US) | September 28th, 2011
    I have always enjoyed fruity and spicy rather than floral scents and so originally intended to purchase a "sample" size bottle of lavender to try out in my CP soap. However, both my research into the myriad health benefits of this E.O. and the online reviews convinced me to go with a much larger bottle. I'M SO GLAD I DID!!! This oil is healthful, affordable, extremely versatile, and best of all, EVERYONE in my household enjoys the scent! Even my very picky young daughter asks me to rub a few drops through her hair to help her sleep at night.
    Perfect Lavender
    (Bryant, WI, US) | August 13th, 2011
    This lavender is so great....I use it in my CP soap and the smell is amazing....I sell at a outdoor market and people can smell my soaps way to the end of the rows. Excellent quality with a great price.
    Excellent for cat scratches
    (Santa Rosa, CA, US) | August 7th, 2011
    With a house full of cats, we always keep lavender essential oil on hand in large (8-ounce) jars. Lavender essential oil is mildly analgesic and antiseptic; according to some studies, it also stimulates cell growth (and therefore speeds healing). So when we get those inevitable cat scratches (the kitties don't mean it, but their claws are sharp!), we get out the lavender oil and spread it on the scratches. The pain goes away instantly and the scratches don't swell as they would if not treated. Having the 40/42 on hand is nice because it does the same job but isn't as expensive.
    Lovely Lavender
    (Miami, FL, US) | July 18th, 2011
    I was a little skeptical about this oil being that it had a fraction in the name, but I purchased it and made my C.P. soap and the smell was truly lavender. All my customers buy this scent first! I was pleasantly surprised at how well the scent holds up on C.P. soap. Excellent choice- great scent- affordable price.
    Stronger and sweeter than French and Bulgaria lavender
    (Falls Church, VA, US) | June 22nd, 2011
    Long ago I ordered the much more expensive French and Bulgarian lavender varieties (also from Camdengrey) because I was wary about the linalyl acetate content as an artificial ingredient. Eventually I found that it is a chemical that occurs naturally in lavender and many other flowers, so I ordered some to compare to my older stock (yes they last a long long time!) The 40/42 smells stronger and sweeter than its brethren. If you are blending lavender with other milder smelling oils, you may want to use the French kind. Otherwise, you can't go wrong with the 40/42 for both quality and price.
