Lavender oil is a light, floral and herbaceous aroma with a woody, balsamic undertone.
The lavender plant has long stems with tiny blue-purple flowers covering them. It is a popular English herb, as well as being widely cultivated in France and Yugoslavia. Lavender essential oil is extracted from the fresh flowering tops by steam distillation. Lavender essential oil blends especially well with citrus and floral oils, in particular with cedarwood, clove, clary sage, pine, geranium, and patchouli.
