Organic spike lavender oil is a middle note steam distilled from the flowering tops of Lavandula latifolia. Spike lavender essential oil has a spicier aroma than other lavender oils with warm floral notes. Spike lavender grows naturally at low altitudes, and true lavender grows naturally at high altitudes. This difference in growing conditions accounts for the camphor that is found in spike lavender and not in the other. Where the growing conditions of these two types of lavender meet, you can find a wide variety of lavender hybrids.
The oil and plant of spike lavender are used in similar ways to Lavandula angustifolia or true lavender. Spike lavender oil is also used throughout the fragrance industry: specifically soap making. Popular in perfumery, it blends well with clove, eucalyptus, patchouli, petitgrain, or cedarwood.

Precautions This oil may be mildly neurotoxic based on camphor content. Never use essential oils undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children.
Before using topically, perform a small patch test on your inner forearm or back by applying a small quantity of diluted essential oil and apply a bandage. Wash the area if you experience any irritation. If no irritation occurs after 48 hours it is safe to use on your skin.
