Lavender Essential Oil Kit
Test your nose with this Lavender Essential Oil Kit. Can you tell the difference between these six different types of Lavender? All are 100% pure & natural but each is a bit different from the others, sort of like wines are different if grown in different regions or under different conditions even if type/variety of grape is the same.
|Common Name||Origin||Botanical Name||Description|
|Lavender 40/42||France||Lavandula angustifolia||A blend from several French lavender fields so it is always contains the same amount of naturally occurring linalool and linalyl acetate (40% to 42%) consistently, year to year – all natural / no synthetics.|
|Lavender Wild||France||Lavandula angustifolia||The flowering tops of Lavender are gathered from the hills and countryside in France and then distilled in nearby villages to produce this unique and wonderful Wild Lavender with quite a refreshing aroma.|
|Lavender Bulgaria||Bulgaria||Lavandula angustifolia||Very nice aroma – slightly deeper than the French|
|Lavender France||France||Lavandula angustifolia||Slightly “sweeter” aroma than the Bulgarian|
|Lavender High Alpine||France||Lavandula angustifolia||Very best quality with high linalol content and a wonderful light floral aroma|
|Lavender Provence, Organic||France||Lavandula angustifolia||Ahhh…Just perfect!|
Each bottle of Lavender in our Lavender Essential Oil Kit comes in a 5ml bottle.
Standard sizes for our Lavender Essential Oils are 5ml, 10ml or 15ml, depending on which one you choose. But, we bottled all of the Lavenders in this Lavender Essential Oil Kit in 5ml so that more of our customers could enjoy the set at a reduced cost.
We carry 6 different types of Lavender essential oil. Are you curious which type is right for you? Check out our infographic describing the differences: Our 6 Types of Lavender Essential Oil.
Note that since good quality Lavender 40/42 USA became unavailable so we replaced it in our Lavender Essential Oil Sample Kit with our Wild French Lavender (more expensive but, well worth the extra cost).

Lavender History: Lavender has a long history of use; the name coming from the latin word “lavere”, which means “to wash”, because the Romans added Lavender to their bath water. It is the essential oil made famous by Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, who, upon burning his hand in a laboratory accident, plunged it into a container of lavender oil and immediately experienced relief from the pain. He was also intrigued to find that the burn healed without the usual blistering or scarring, and became interested in the healing power of essential oils. His studies led to the publication of the book Aromatherapie, and also popularized the term aromatherapy for the study of essential oils.
Lavender is now cultivated all over the world, including France, Russia, Bulgaria, the Himalayas and Croatia. Lavender is the most popular and widely used essential oil and for good reason: not only is it remarkably gentle and effective, but it has an almost universally beloved aroma – floral, soft, and herbaceous. This is one of the essential oils that everyone should have on hand.
Probably most well known for its ability to reduce stress, relieve anxiety and insomnia, Lavender oil is the number one choice for many when they need calming, grounding and rest. In fact, aromatherapy researchers found, when testing several different oils, that lavender oil was the most effective at relaxing brainwaves and decreasing stress.Essential Oil Safety Considerations
