Clearwater Apothecary is one of the leading suppliers of Lavender - 4042. This essential oil is the most common choice for applications in Soap, Candles, Body Butters,perfume, and cosmetics, and aromatherapy. The “40/42” refers to the balance of Linalool and Linalyl acetate esters, which is what gives it such a consistent floral scent but also means it is standardized. For this reason some aromatherapists regard this oil as something that is not considered 'therapeutic grade" or "pure grade" since it is does not come directly from the plant in this form. Instead this oil is standardized in a lab to ensure consistency in smell. It also has a balsamic woody undertone with a floral, herbaceous fresh scent. Lavender oil blends well with countless other oils. Specifically, pine, clary sage, cedarwood, nutmeg and geranium.
Common Uses: Excellent for relief of pain from sunburn and minor burns and keeps insects away. One of the safest for use with children and the elderly. Lavender 40/42 is often the choice for applications in soaps, candles, perfumes and cosmetics.
Caution: It should not be used directly in pregnant women or women who are currently breastfeeding.
