Botanical Name: Lavandula latifolia
Plant Part: Flowers
Extraction Method: Steam Distilled
Common Uses: While its penetrating scent is not as delicate as that of true lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), the spike lavender essential oil's high camphor and cineole content (40-60%) makes it very useful for easing headaches, colds and body stiffness.
For skincare, its oil can be used as a mild but effective antiseptic. Its camphoraceous quality blends well with eucalyptus globulus as a decongestant. It is also commonly used in industries as as a perfume component for soaps, deodorants and room sprays.
Emotionally, spike lavender essential oil is more energizing and stimulating compared to true lavender essential oil. Spike lavender oil promotes concentration whereas the soothing scent of true lavender is more suited towards calming anxieties and promoting better sleep.
Blends Well With: Rosemary, eucalyptus, rosewood, petitgrain, pine, patchouli and spice oils like clove.
Description: Fresh, floral, herbaceous, camphoraceous odour
Caution: Non-toxic, non-irritating except in high concentration. As it contains moderate ketone content, this oil is best mixed with benign oils. Avoid high doses during pregnancy.
