The ester compounds register lower, which including linalyl acetate, is between 18.60 – 27.50%.   Further, Pacific Blue’s green  lavender aroma, is enhanced with a fresh zippy undertone of citrus leaf thanks to higher than normal levels of terpineol–4–ol,s (E)-beta-farsenene (1.8 – 2.3%) and limonene/ ß-phellandrene (1.5 – 2.5%). Perhaps the defining phyto-chemical balance of the Pacific Blue oil is its consistent and unusually high levels of terpinen–4–ol a key compound of Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia), between 9 and 10%The monoterpenol character of this essential oil bestows it high anti-microbial potential.
