Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil - Lavender 40/42 is a bold yet fresh smelling Lavender very similar to our Lavender Provence Essential oil. Made from a mixture of lavender essential oils to create a dependable scent year after year, this Lavender does not experience the same crop variations due to blending different Lavender constituents in a lab after harvesting and distilling. Similar to a red table wine, Lavender 40/42 blends different kinds of Lavender for an economical and consistent blend. Our Lavender 40/42 is a very reliable and refreshing ingredient for any toiletry product - create soothing soaps, relaxing bath salts, or calming lotions.
Distillation Method: Steam Distilled Country of Origin: France Botanical name: Lavandula Angustifolia Part: Flowers
NOTE: This medium-flashpoint oil (150ºF) cannot ship via USPS, regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout.

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Vicki! I'm glad you like our Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil, though I'm sorry you had troubles with it fading in your cold process soap. We love this EO and find it lasts wonderfully in CP when added at .8 oz per pound of soap for a strong scent, found using our Handy Dandy Fragrance Calculator. To help fragrance/essential oils last in your soap through the cure some soapers dip a cotton ball in the scent and place it by the soap while curing. For more tips and tricks check out our How to Prevent Scent Fading in Cold Process Soap blog post.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Gordon! I'm so glad our Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil made your liquid soap smell great! Though I'm sorry you had troubles working with it. Making liquid soap can be very tricky and just like with making cold process soap you need to test every fragrance with your particular soap base to create the perfect recipe for you! Most Lavender Essential oils will thin out natural liquid soaps. You can warm up your soap and add some water to thin it out, be sure to stir slowly so as not to make too many bubbles. In our experiments we have found that it is best to thin or thicken the soap first and add the fragrance or essential oil last. So keep track of your ratios so you know how much to use for next time!
