Lavendula stoechas essential oil is obtained by steam distilling the flowering tops of “Spanish” lavender. This oil is high in camphor and excellent for cleaning purposes. We bottle our essential oil in frosted cobalt blue glass bottles with a glass dropper for easy, precise dispensing and measuring.
The Lavender plant is a woody evergreen shrub, up to 1 meter tall, with pale green, narrow linear leaves and violet 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'. Differences in soil, altitude and temperature, precipitation and seasons contribute to subtle changes in the scent from one lot of Lavender to another.
Origin: This strain of Lavender Essential oil is very popular France and now grown here in the USA.
