This particular type of lavender essential oil is extracted from the English lavender plant which is part of the mint family, Lamiaceae. It is clear in color with a tinge of yellow. Known to be one of the safest essential oils, lavender is native to the Old World, but is now grown and cultivated all over the world. It contains a high percentage of naturally occurring chemical components linalool and linalyl acetate, which possess anti-inflammatory properties. It blends well with bergamot, clary sage, eucalyptus, grapefruit, lemon, lemongrass, patchouli, peppermint, rosemary and tea tree essential oils. With applications in cooking, perfumes, soaps, lotions, fresheners and other skin care products, we believe that lavender essential oil is a must-have for every home!

Purity and Grading
All of our essential oils are 100% pure, undiluted oils. We strive to source the highest quality oils from established, reputable suppliers that value purity, sustainability and natural practices. We are often questioned by customers whether our oils are “therapeutic grade”.
The term “therapeutic grade” was created and trademarked by newer essential oil companies to differentiate their products from others on the market. The truth of the matter is that the Food and Drug Administration does not certify the quality of essential oils as “therapeutic grade” nor do they provide a certifying label. GloryBee Essential Oils provide the same quality, purity, and reputability as therapeutic grade oils – often times at a lower prices.
