Lavender 2 oz EssOil
The aroma of lavender has wafted through human history. It was used in ancient Egyptian perfumes and incense, and strewn over the stone floors of medieval castles as a disinfectant and deodorant. Today lavender essential oil is a component of many aromatherapy blends. Lavender's unique aroma is herbaceous and fresh, yet sweet, subtle and floral: a perfect balance of relaxing and uplifting characteristics. In fact, according to aromatherapists, the balancing attribute is lavender's most prevalently described aromatherapy benefit.
Lavender essential oil contains up to 40% linalyl acetate and 30% linalol. Linalol is a terpene alcohol that is non-toxic to the human organism, yet naturally germicidal. Linalyl acetate has a pleasant, sweet fruity-floral aroma. The combination of antimicrobial and sweetness is the key to lavender's effectiveness in cosmetic and aromatherapy preparations.
Lavender essential oil is fresh and flowery-sweet with a fleeting light fruity tone, gradually becoming more floral-herbaceous and balsamic-woody but maintaining its sweetness and pleasantness. The oil is not very tenacious. When it dries out it leaves behind a faint, sweet-herbaceous aroma. Good lavender oil isn't overly sharp, herbaceous, penetrating or camphoraceous.
