Wholesale Pure Spike Lavender Essential Oil

From Wholesale Essential Oils, 100% pure Spike Lavender essential oil. Our oil is steam distilled from the flowering tops of plants growing in France. France is known to produce a more fragrant variety of Spike Lavender oil than that grown in Spain. The aroma is likened to a cross between Sage and Lavender. It is used as an antiseptic in skin blends. Our Spike Lavender is of the best therapeutic quality and is available from sample size up to 1 kg or more.

ABOUT THE PLANT

An aromatic evergreen sub-shrub with linear or lance-shaped leaves and long flowering spikes with greyish-blue flowers native to the mountainous regions of the Mediterranean, Spike Lavender is thought to be a cross between Lavender and Sage. It has a sharper, more camphoraceous aroma when compared to the angustifolia or 'true' Lavender varietal.

ABOUT THE OIL

This Spike Lavender essential oil is lightweight (low viscosity) and nearly colorless. It is steam distilled from the flowers of plants naturally grown in France. When using Lavender for purely aromatic purposes, consider using the angustifolia variety; it has a more subtle and floral aroma. Spike Lavender is best suited to medicinal aromatherapy applications.

Aromatherapy Notes

This Spike Lavender oil has clear floral and camphoraceous top notes, green, herbaceous middle notes and a slightly wooded undertone. It will blend well with most citrus and floral oils ~ Cedarwood, Clove, Clary Sage, Pine, Geranium, Labdanum, Oakmoss, Vetiver and Patchouli. When blending, use slightly smaller concentrations than 'true' Lavender oil as it can easily overwhelm a blend.

Traditional Uses

Lavender oil is the most versatile essential oil used in aromatherapy today, and has been known for centuries as a 'medicine chest in a bottle'. The 'Spike' Lavender variety may be the more 'medicinal' of the lavender family, with enhanced antiseptic properties due to its chemical structure. It has been used for centuries as an anti-inflammatory, bactericidal, psychological balancing agent, analgesic and sedative to relax the nervous system. To help combat the flu virus, Dr. K.Schnaubelt suggests a generous and repeated rub of Spike Lavender, Eucaluptus Radiata, Eucalyptus Dives, and Thyme in carrier oil applied 40 to 50 drops at a time to the torso while using the undiluted blend as an inhaler. To treat headaches, blend Spike Lavender with peppermint; and for an excellent anti-inflammatory and efficient painkiller blend with Rosemary.

Application and Use

Safety

Even though this varietal of Lavender is more powerful in its medicinal constituents (primarily camphor), it remains a non-toxic, non-irritant that is generally non-sensitizing and is considered safe for use on children. As with all essential oils, moderation is recommended and if taking internally, consultation with a physician is advised.
