Lavender essential oil, of the Bulgarian variety, is the choice of most aromatherapists. Especially if you’re looking for a rich lavender floral scent that is a little fruitier and mellower that the 40/42, and with less of a camphoraceous smell. This one smells more like fresh lavender and is considered the "cream of the crop" when it comes to lavender.
Lavender essential oil can be used by adding a few drops to the bath, mixing it into lotion or massage products, or applying it directly to the scalp or massaging in a carrier into the joints. It can also mix well with many other oils, from pine and sage to cedarwood and nutmeg. As a vapor, lavender oil can be mixed with vegetable glycerin and diffused in a diffuser. Just add it to a vaporizer with your water and sit in an enclosed area. It can also be sprayed in a shower/sauna for a similar effect. You can even add a few drops to a bowl of hot water and breathe in the fumes. Finally, lavender essential oil can even be used as a mild insect repellant.
Lavender oil blends well with countless other oils. Specifically, pine, clary sage, cedarwood, nutmeg and geranium.
The strong aroma and menthol content should be avoided during pregnancy. This oil should also NOT be taken orally as it can be toxic. Can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions.
