Bulgarian Lavender Essential Oil, organic

Bulgarian Lavender Essential Oil, organic

from 12.00

Pure lavender essential oil harvested and steam distilled from high-altitude Bulgarian lavender flowers (lavandula angustifolia). Steam-distilled means that no chemicals or harsh solvents are used to produce the oil, resulting in an exceptionally high quality, gentle product.

Our lavender oil has a verified monoterpene alcohol content of about 34%, which makes it an excellent "terp" for your henna.

It is has been carefully sourced and is intended for aromatherapy and therapeutic applications, unlike other "lavender-like" oils available. True lavender oil is generally considered to be one of the safest essential oils for use with henna, so it's wonderful for pregnancy henna, henna crowns or for anyone with sensitive skin. It also smells heavenly!

Lavender oils to avoid:

  • Lavender 40-42 - not intended for topical use. It is wonderful for perfumes, but not henna.

  • Spike Lavender - This lower quality oil should be avoided while pregnant and may cause skin irritation in some individuals.

Both lavender 40/42 and spike have a higher camphor content, which is not ideal during pregnancy or for anyone with a compromised immune system. The true lavender we stock has a verified camphor content of less than 0.15%, some of the lowest you'll find available!

OTCO/USDA certified organic. Steam distilled.
