Lavender oil has a light fresh aroma, is clear in color and watery in viscosity. The name is derived from the Latin word 'lavera' which means 'to wash' and the Romans used it frequently in their bath routine. Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil has the most floral scent of all the Lavenders. Lavender 40/42 is often the Lavender oil of choice for applications in soaps, candles, perfumes and cosmetics. The reason is that the 40/42 refers to the standardization of both Linalool and Linalyl acetate esters resulting in a very consistent floral scent.
