Lavender 4042 or Lavender 40/42 is used primarily for cosmetics, perfumery, and candle-making, but is not indicated for therapeutic use. It is a mixture of different lavender essential oils, the blend intended to help produce a consistent product from year to year. The 40/42 ratio denotes the standardized linalool and linalyn acetate concentration of 40-42%. If you are looking for a versatile oil to use for any fragrance purposes, 40/42 provides an affordable and predictable quality that you can count on. The Spanish 40/42 is a thin, clear to pale yellow liquid with a slightly more intense camphor aroma than your average 40/42, and smells just like fresh lavender flowers.
