Lavender officinalis Lavender Oil

Monday, December 21st, 2009

Lavender officinalis ( Lavender Oil ), the mother of all lavenders, was the common name originally given to all lavender plants. In the past 30 years lavender plant toxicology has separated lavender plants that have specific qualities, chemical constituents and physical differences. The botanical name Lavender officinalis now refers only to the lavender plant that we derive lavender oil 40/42 from. Lavender oil 40/42 has the least amount of therapeutic qualities of all lavender varieties and is the least expensive of all pure lavender essential oils.

Today the lavender officinalis species, is one of 39 species of lavender plants, specifically identified for its profuse floral essence. This concentrated lavender flower scent oil, 40/42, from the Lavender officinalis plant, has been appropriated as the essential oil of choice for perfume, soap, bath oil, essential oil diffusers, lotion, potpourris, candles, and cosmetics. The “40/42” lavender oil of lavender officinalis, indicates the standardization of the linalool and linalyl acetate esters. This standardization insures a consistent floral scent to manufacturers of the lavender products listed above.

Lavender officinalis, lavender oil 40/42, has the highest concentration of floral scent of all the lavender essential oils, and has the lowest therapeutic components (chemicals) of all lavender essential oils. However, Lavender officinalis, lavender oil 40/42 also has some strong properties. Some of these values are:

    • diuretic,
    • analgestic,
    • sedative,

If the label does not list the botanical name and say that the oil from the listed plant is 100% pure, do not buy it, shop for pure quality and FULL DISCLOSURE! This tip will prevent you from buying a cheap blend or a synthetic oil concoction…

Lavender Essential Oil,will the real lavender essential oil please stand up?

Sunday, December 13th, 2009

Lavender essential oil, will the real lavender essential oil please stand up? Lavender oil buyers have to navigate through a maze of marketing hype to find the best lavender essential oil. To understand the genuine lavender oil lets examine the use, taxonomy, culture and finally the “other” oils that seem to be lavender…buy essential oils now

    Lavender essential oil has the following uses:
    • And for perfumes

The main species, lavender plant, had a previous name of Lavandula officinalis. In recent history this name has been changed to Lavandula angustifolia. This is the only variety of lavender plant that can be called “True” Lavender, “Fine” Lavender, “Wild” Lavender and/ or “Common” Lavender. Lavandula angustifolia is the only lavender plant that can produce lavender essential oils with the highest amounts of ALL the CORRECT constituent chemicals for Medicinal, Therapeutic and Aromatherapy uses. There are over 30 more varieties of lavender plants of which four are used for landscaping and a couple in the manufacturing of “essential lavender oils”, Lavandula dentata (French lavender), Lavandula latifolia (Portuguese or Spike lavender), Lavandula multifida (Egyptian lavender, Fernleaf lavender) and Lavandula stoechas (Spanish lavender). Lavandula angustifolia is now grown in almost every country that is climatically suitable for lavender oil culture. Lavandula angustifolia is a slow grower, short leaves and flowers, produces small amounts of oil to plant ratio and has a preference of climate. These limitations account for Lavandula angustifolia lavender essential oil being the highest priced of all lavender oils to grow and to buy.

Lavandula angustifolia can be propagated by plant divisions, cuttings and by natural pollinated seeds (pollen coming from other Lavandula angustifolia plants). Seed reproductions can receive a name such as Lavandula angustifolia var. Mont Blanc or Lavandula angustifolia var. Population. These two varieties have the highest amounts of constituent properties needed for Medicinal, Therapeutic and Aromatherapy uses.

Commercial lavender oil growers have used hybridization to create plants with longer leaves & flowers, faster growing and much more oil production. The hybrids are created by crossing Lavandula angustifolia with Lavandula latifolia. These hybrids are known as Lavandula x intermedia or Lavandula x hybrid. The “x” indicates that this plant is a lavender hybrid. All lavender hybrids are known as Lavandin. Lavendin is classified to be of a lower quality lavender oil due to its absence or crucially low quantities of some Medicinal, Therapeutic and Aromatherapy properties. Lavandin plants produce volumes of oil compared to Lavandula angustifolia, therefore growers tend to blend lavadins with Lavandula Angustifolia oil in order to sell their crop of lavadin oil. Lavandin oil is very inexpensive and produced in large amounts for cleaning fluids, perfumes, soaps and lotions. Lavandins have a few of the aromatherapy properties but not all that are needed to be classified suitable for the top three uses. Lavanden Provence and Lavanden Grosso are the best known of these, but there are many others, including but not limited to White Grosso Abriali, Dutch Mill, Hidcote Giant, Grappenhall, Seal, and Fred Boutin lavadins.

So how can you be sure that you buying the best quality lavender essential oil? Look for just 4 words… “100% PURE LAVANDULA ANGUSTIFOLIA”. These words insure you are getting quality, pure, true, fine, real Medicinal, Therapeutic and Aromatherapy grade lavender essential oil. So will the genuine lavender essential oil please stand up? Only one lavender oil can stand the laboratory test for all these qualities… 100% PURE LAVANDULA ANGUSTIFOLIA! (SOLD HERE)If the label does not say “PURE 100% LAVANDULA ANGUSTIFOLIA”, with the words IN THAT ORDER, don’t buy the oil thinking that the misnomers used to describe the “mixture”, “blend” or impostor will transform the adulterated tincture into bono fide lavender essential oil.

Yes, you will pay more for pure 100% Lavadula angustifolia lavender essential oil, but no other oil compares unless you are wanting to make soap or cleaning fluids that needs just a lot of lavender fragrance and little of the Medicinal, Therapeutic and Aromatherapy qualities.

So the next time you see a sale for an ounce (30 ml) of lavender oil for $8.99, know that the label will not say 100% pure Lavadula angustifolia, because it is more than likely the impostor LAVANDIN!
