Botanical Name: Lavandula officinalis

Main Constituents:
Linalool: 29.5%
Linalyl Acetate: 36.1%

Plant Part: Flowers

Origin: France

Processing Method: Steam Distillation

Description / Color / Consistency: A thin, clear, colourless to pale yellow liquid.

Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: A top note of strong aroma, Lavender 40/42 has a fresh, herbaceous, floral scent with a woody, balsamic undertone.

Blends With: Bay, Bergamot, Chamomile, Citronella, Clary Sage, Geranium, Jasmine, Lemon, Mandarin, Orange, Palmarosa, Patchouli, Pine, Thyme, Rosemary, Rosewood and Ylang-ylang.

Product Abstract: The Lavender plant grows to about one meter in height and produces long thin purple- blue flowers. The entire plant is covered with oil glands, which are in the star shaped hairs that cover the plant. Lavender has been used since ancient times, and the Romans added lavender to their bath water, hence the name from the Latin lavare, 'to wash'. Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil has the most floral scent of all the Lavenders and is a blend of various lavenders to achieve an economical product. While the vast majority of Lavender 40/42 in the market is synthetically compounded, our Lavender 40/42 is comprised of 100% natural constituents and is blended to match the ideal percentage of Linalool and Linalyl acetate esters, to release the best of Lavender's floral notes. Though this oil is generally not used for therapeutic applications, it is often the Lavender of choice for soaps, candles, perfumes and cosmetics.

Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

Smells soo good and really affordable. I didn't used to be a huge lavender fan but this has got me hooked. I use it in many of my CP soap recipes so a bigger bottle is definitely worth it!

I've been using this Lavender 40/42 for several years in cold process soap making. I use it in many of my blends. Goes well with any citrus, I've used it with other florals and is amazingly long lasting when used with a touch of Patchouli. Even alone, the scent after the cure time is very good and lasts. Always a best seller. Lavender lover customers choose this one first and always come back for more.

Ideal lavender, is my go to and I use it for everything. It's in diffuser as the "studio scent" in every mix I make, and in most of my salves and balms, bug oils and custom perfumes. So incredibly delicious smelling

This has always been my go to lavender, always popular with lavender lovers, so relaxing. I have a lavender garden and this eo is very close to fresh lavender. I have noticed the camphorous element to this oil is becoming less the last couple of times I have ordered it, more towards the floral end, so maybe I will try the Spanish to blend.

The price is great on this one, but it is a blend of several different lavenders. I found it is most similar to the French Lavender. It does have a camphorous smell. Normally I really dislike lavenders and their sharpness. I tried all the Lavenders available from ND as we have major sleep issues in our house - my favorite by far is the Bulgarian Lavender, which has the lowest camphor concentration. I use this one on my hair :)

It smells exactly like actual lavenders. If that's a fragrance you like, then you'll love it. I'm from a country that doesn't have lavender plants, so I though this oil would smell like lavender fragranced body products I had used in the past. It doesn't. I had a chance to smell actual lavender leaves the other day and nda's lavender oil was spot on! It's really potent too.

I purchased this eo in hopes of finding a lavender that was a little more flowery/sweet smelling that the South African, but I find that the two are very much alike. The 40/42 is a little more subtle, but I don't notice much of a difference at all. That said, this eo is still going to be well used in my home for all the benefits that come with lavender essential oil.

When I opened the bottle, it smelled disgusting. It was nothing near what lavender is in cosmetics. Then I realized that NDA provides undiluted eos. So I found playing around with oil dilutions necessary. In small amounts - diluted - it has a wonderful deep smell. As I get better at dilutions, I am using it in more and more products.

Probably not the normal use for this on this page but I am using the lavender oil & dried lavender flowers as an ant repellent. Food grade diatomaceous earth around all the baseboards & across the window sills & patio door topped with a liberal sprinkling of dried lavender flowers. A few drops of lavender oil into the tracks of the windows & I think that I will be the only ant-free unit in the building! Bonus? Doesn't harm my 2 footed or furry footed family.
