Product Description: Essential oil from Lavendin is frequently used to cut the higher grade oils. It is colorless to pale yellow clear liquid. It is used for scenting cleaning products, soap, and blended in Lavender perfumes. This oil is comparitively cheap. The English word lavender is generally thought to be derived from Old French lavandre, ultimately from the Latin lavare (to wash), referring to the use of infusions of the plants. It is a popular choice amongst both aromatherapists and massotherapists for its constituents and pleasant floral scent.
