Hungarian Lavender Essential Oil: Although this is the same botanical flower as the Provence Lavender, our Hungarian Lavender essential oil is less camphoraceouss and more green in scent. It is velvety and smooth instead of the more bold Provence. It has become the new favorite in the warehouse. Let us know what you think!

I have purchased this oil numerous times and really love the sent, however the last bottle I purchased seemed very watered down. Is there a best time of year to buy essential oils when they might be at their peak? I am also finding this to be true with the spearmint and tea tree. Just curious, have you changed vendor?
can this essential oil be used in homemade baby powder, I have a customer who is a lavender fanatic and wants homemade talc free baby powder and I was wondering if I could use this essential oil
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Courtney! I'm so glad you love our Hungarian Lavender Essential Oil! This EO can definitely be used in a homemade baby powder! Because babies' skin is so sensitive many people prefer to leave products for babies unscented. Though, Lavender Essential Oil is a great choice for scent because it is so soothing. Just remember to keep your usage rates low! Check out this Buttermilk Bastille Baby Bar on Soap Queen TV where we used Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil for fragrance.
I love, love, love this Lavender! Instead of the heavy oily scent left by some lavenders, Hungarian Lavender rounds out light and airy, sort of like walking by lavender in a field of green grass after a rain shower. This is not an overpowering flowery smell. In my CP soaps with lemon eucalyptus and tea tree scent comes through lightly. So far my favorite combo is Lavender, Tea Tree and Pure Honey--can't stop sniffing the light flowery, clean and sweet scent!
This is a rich, smooth, non-capphorus, non metallic, VSOP of a Lavender ESO. One of the nicest I have ever smelled and good value for the quality....I received this in a sampler set and really liked it. This is fine cologne quality, like in vintage 4711.
This is the first EO I've tried from BB that leaves me wanting more. I don't know if I just happened to get a bottle from a weaker batch, but I'm not sure I'll order this specific product again.
The fragrance it gives off is very nice. I won't say it's my favorite lavender, but it does smell very good. But even in the bottle, it's weak--possibly even weaker than an almost empty bottle of lavender I've had for 3-4 years.
Wondering if the scent might be enhanced after curing in CP soap, I gave it a try. My first attempt didn't go so well--I used a bit of neem oil in the batch, which completely overpowered the lavender. Thinking that maybe it would do better in a more neutral oil blend, I did a test batch with only olive oil, lard, and coconut oil... and it's still very weak despite using slightly more EO than recommended for a strong scent.
That said, for facial creams, it is perfect. I prefer more mild scents when making lotions, so I'll probably use the rest of this bottle for that.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Beth! I'm glad you think our Hungarian Lavender Essential Oil gives off a good scent! Though, I'm sorry you found it to be weak smelling. We found this fragrance was strong when used at .48 oz per pound of cold process soap using our Handy Dandy Fragrance Calculator. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!
