Aroma: The aroma for the New Zealand Lavender is soft, floral, sweet, and uniquely balanced. It does not have an overpowering powder type smell.
Personal notes: This oil has a much lower linalol content than other Lavenders, but has a much nicer aroma in terms of its roundness. I actually prefer to use this lavender over a lavender from France due to its aroma. The large amount of ester content in this oil almost instantly allows you to relax as you breathe it in. I tend to use this essential oil more in sleep or anxiety related blends for this reason. It is an exquisitely crafted Lavender oil and a must have for Lavender lovers.
Safety Data: This is essential oil is considered non-toxic and generally safe if used properly.
Usage ideas: Create your own sweet dreams blend.
