Lavender Essential Oil – L. angustifolia Bee


Lavender cultivar Bee produces the richest of Snowy River Lavender’s essential oils with characteristically resonant spicy honey aromas hinting of dry wood, cedar and mushroom.  Well balanced in the key lavender compounds, linalool and linalyl acetate (each typically between 30 – 35%), it compares positively to both ISO & Pharmacopeia Standards for Lavender OilBee also has an unusual lasting effect attributable to consistently high levels of the warming spicy floral, cis-ß-ocimene (6 – 8%), the sweet peppery tenacity of ß – caryophyllene (2.19 – 3.00%) and the buttery honey ketone, 3-octanone (2.5 – 4.5%). Bee is distinctly Australian lavender oil.
