    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.

    Wonderful aroma
    (Golden, CO, US) | June 10th, 2011
    I used this in a CP milk soap recipe and it smelled magnificent. I had used other lavender e.o's in the recipe and this one definitely gave the "truest" lavender scent. My customers love it.
    Best Lavender I've Used
    (Hicksville, OH, US) | June 6th, 2011
    This is the best Lavender I have used. I have used 40/42 from other suppliers, but the quality and aroma was not sweet enough. Customers love this! I will def. be purchasing more within the next month or so!!
    Yes, Yes, this Lavender!
    (Starr, SC, US) | June 4th, 2011
    Shame on me! I can't believe I haven't written a review for the Lavender yet as long as I've been using it. I have tried many, but this one is exceptional in my soaping! I use it on my baby every night. It is so relaxing and half the price of other places. Excellent product, excellent price!

    This lavender essential oil is the truest scent I have found to the real lavender plant. I love it in my soap and bath salts; so do my customers!
    My most Essential, Essential Oil!!!
    (Spring, TX, US) | May 23rd, 2011
    I Love this wonderful Lavender scent and this is my # 1 ingredient in 90% of my products so far. Definitely a must have! This is a perfect Mid to Top tone in all my blending.
    Even my husband likes this!
    (san antonio, TX, US) | May 11th, 2011
    I've been making soaps at home for a year now and usually my husband sniffs them, makes a face and hides in his office. This EO makes lovely CP soaps that he can't put down. We usually think of florals for the ladies, but this lavender produces a scent in my soaps that my father and stepfather like, too!
    Beautifully fragrant with hundreds of uses.
    (Marlton, NJ, US) | May 8th, 2011
    I use this oil for so many things, in soaps, perfumes, bath salts, massage oils, and cleaning products. It is my favorite oil to clean with, mixed with baking soda it is great for getting smells from pets and smoke out of furniture and carpets. Mixed with rosemary oils it can be combined with many body products to relieve bumps and bruises, and used alone it can be dabbed on cuts to promote healing and prevent scarring. Because I use so much of it, I adore the price on this website, I haven't found oil of a similar quality for less money anywhere.
    Excellent Lavender
    (Sycamore, IL, US) | May 7th, 2011
    I have been using CG Lavender for a few years now and it is definitely a reliable excellent lavender. I have used a few others but when I need quantity and quality nobody beats Camden Grey for value. The best.
    Lovely lavender!
    (Verona, WI, US) | May 3rd, 2011
    This is absolutely my favorite EO. I've used it in CP soap, body butters, lotion bars, solid perfumes & salves. I've tried lavender EO from other sources, but came back to Camden Grey for this wonderful EO! It is the EO I use most often and is in almost every order I place at CG. It is the best quality for a great price.
