|Latin Name||Lavandula angustifolia Mill |
|Synonyms||L. vera, L. officinalis |
|Extraction||Distillation of the flowering tops |
|Plant characteristics||This hardy herb has a delicate purple-blue flower in spring and summer. Grown in Norfolk, Oxfordshire and Kent (usually) this hard perennial has been bred to house a proportion of the essential oil glands internally so that harvesting does not affect the majority of the oil. |
|Oil characteristics||A very pale yellow oil with a sweet, floral, warm, camphorous, fresh aroma. The smell is less sweet than French lavender. |
|Traditional use||The floral water was used for washing of personal clothes to make them smell fresh. Also used in the English Perfume houses to create fresh, feminine scents. |
|Blends well with||Most other essential oils|
|Cautions and comments||No known contra-indications. Always check the Latin name when buying lavender oil as there are many other types of lavender that are not at all as effective. |
|Main chemical constituents||Alcohols (<30%), esters (<30%), terpenes, oxides. |
