Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil: Uses, Benefits, and Blends

Lavender 40/42 essential oil gets its name from its chemical composition. 40/42 lavenders are known for their consistent aromas, which can be very important to soap, candle, and cosmetic manufacturers. Lavender 40/42 is processed to contain 40% linalool, and 43% linalyl acetate, two of the major components of lavender oil. If you are a cosmetic manufacturer or perfumer, then VINEVIDA’s lavender 40/42 can help get you the concise, consistent, fragrance you need, every time!

Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil Product Details

The lavender plant is in the Lamiaceae family, which you may know as the mint family. Lavender belongs to the genus Lavandula and there are more than 45 different species, with over 450 different varieties! The plants are native to the Mediterranean region, though today they grow wide-spread around the world. Lavender 40/42 oil comes from the species formerly known as Lavandula officinalis, now called Lavandula angustifolia. We take different varieties of the plant, blending them together to create the signature 40/42 ratio of linalool and linalyl acetate. Linalyl acetate is an acetate, which comes directly from linalool. It appears as a colorless liquid, and with its fruity, floral aroma you will find it in many fragrances. Linalool is an organic terpene that occurs naturally in lavender, as well as many other plants. Initial studies on linalool indicate that it may be able to help effectively treat anxiety

Wholesale Use of Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil

Due to its component make-up, lavender 40/42 is a favorite for many in the cosmetic and perfume industries. Manufacturers need to be able to depend on the fragrance of an oil for their products, and different batches of lavender oil can differ in their chemical make-up. Ensuring that the exact percentages of lavender 40/42 stay the same helps to standardize the aroma of a particular product. 

Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil Soapmaking

Candles, soaps, incense, perfumes, and cosmetics all often include lavender in their ingredient list. It is also very popular in aromatherapy, both in massage oils and for aromatic uses. VINEVIDA offers multiple varieties of lavender, for a range of uses, including 40/42, Bulgarian, French, and Organic Lavender, in both bulk and individual sizes. 


In spite of the fact it is in many skin and cosmetic products, linalool can often cause allergies or skin irritation. When linalool oxidizes in the air, it becomes an allergen that many people are sensitive to. This is why products with linalool often cause more irritation the longer they are open. 

You should never put essential oils directly on the skin. They require diluting first, with either a carrier oil or other product. To help avoid allergic reactions to linalool, we advise also doing a skin test first. Take a little bit of your diluted oil, and place it on the skin. Leave it on for 24-hours, checking to see if you have any reactions. If not, this is a good indication that you are not sensitive to lavender oil, and can continue using it as desired. 

Flash Point



Lavender 40/42 essential oil is a specific type of lavender oil, aiming to help cosmetic and perfume manufacturers regulate their products. It is made up of 40/42% linalool and linalyl acetate, which contribute to lavender’s trademark aroma. The use of lavender 40/42 offers up a consistent fragrance every time, making it perfect for use in soaps, candles, perfumes, and cosmetics. Because linalool is a common allergen, it is particularly important to make sure you are using proper dilution methods, as well as doing a skin test first before use.

I love the scent

I love the scent of this Lavender essential oil. It smells powdery yet floral. Its a soft, almost sweet scent that mixes well with my body butters.

Smells amazing

First time ordering with this company so I thought I'd try Lavender Essential since I was going to need some soon. The smell is amazing and works well in bath bombs and cold process soap. I will order more in the future and start trying other products as needed.
