Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil 1/2 oz
( lavendula officinalis )
The aroma is floral, herbaceous, fresh, light with balsamic woody undertone. The most floral scent of all lavenders, but the therapeutic levels are not as great. Lavender 40/42 is often the choice for applications in soaps, candles, perfumes and cosmetics. The reason is that the 40/42 refers to the standardization of both linalool and linalyl acetate resulting in a very consistent floral scent thus smells the way most feel lavender should smell.
