Lavender Essential Oil (Spike)

Spike Lavender Essential Oil is similar in usage to that of Lavender angustifolia or Lavender officianalis. However, it contains significantly more camphor. Generally speaking, traditional lavender oils like angustifolia and officianalis are best suited for soothing and relaxing the body from tension and stress as well as for helping your body to wind down at the end of the night.

Like other lavender oils, Spike Lavender Oil is floral, fresh, sweet and herbaceous. However, it is much more camphorous in aroma. Aromatically, Spike Lavender Oil tends to blend well with the same families of essential oils that traditional Lavender Oil does including other floral, mint and coniferous oils. Rosemary Essential Oil, depending on the chemotype, also tends to have a large percentage of camphor. If you particularly like the aroma of Rosemary Oil, you should find the aroma of Spike Lavender Essential Oil appealing.
