Lavender Spike Essential Oil

Lavender Spike Essential Oil has a penetrating aroma, similar to Lavender, only a little more spicy and somewhat camphor-like with a dry-woody undertone. The oil is colorless to pale yellow. It is steam distilled from the flowering tops of an aromatic evergreen shrub. It is high in cineole linalool and camphor and low on linalyl acetate.

Why Auroma 100% pure and natural Lavender Spike Essential Oil from The Aromatherapy Place? So you needn’t worry about buying essential oils that are adulterated: Some dishonest Companies combine botanical species to create a cheaper version of an essential oil. As an example, the most common Lavender type comes from Lavadula angustifolia. There is also a cheaper version which comes from Lavandula X intermedia. The two oils are combined, unbeknownst to you, resulting in a cheaper version of Lavender. Auroma guarantees the botanical species origin for each essential oil through testing and analysis, and states it on their product label – so quality and origin is always assured.
