DescriptionOriginating in Spain, Spike Lavender oil has camphor-like nuances with an overall fresh, herbal, floral, slightly woody aroma. Spike Lavender is common throughout the Mediterranean with Spain and France producing the best oils. The aroma is similar to Hybrid Lavender, however, its penetrating camphor-like nuances are commonly compared to Eucalyptus and Rosemary. As a soap additive, it's powerful and stable. It blends well with Spanish Sage, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, and Lavender oils and blends. Some of the natural constituents are linalool, linalyl esters, cineol, pinene, camphor, terpene alcohols, and geraniol.
