Lavender Oil Varieties

  • SDS
  • Lavender 40/42
  • – This essential oil is the most common choice for applications in glycerin soap, candles, perfume, and cosmetics. The “40/42” refers to the balance of Linalool and Linalyl acetate esters, which is what gives it such a consistent floral scent but also means it is standardized.  For this reason some aromatherapists regard this oil as something that is not considered 'therapeutic grade" or "pure grade" since it is does not come directly from the plant in this form.  Instead this oil is standardized in a lab to ensure consistency in smell. It also has a balsamic woody undertone with a floral, herbaceous fresh scent.
  • Lavender Bulgarian
  • SDS
  • – This is the choice of most aromatherapists.  Especially if you’re looking for a rich lavender floral scent that is a little fruitier and mellower that the 40/42, and with less of a camphoraceous smell. This one smells more like fresh lavender and is considered the "cream of the crop" when it comes to lavender.
  • Lavender French
  • SDS
  • – A simple, sweet, floral note that has been a very popular choice.
  • Lavender Population Oil
  • SDS
  • – This sweet, green scent offers a lot of therapeutic properties.

 Lavender Essential Oil Uses


The largest producer of lavender oil is currently Bulgaria, but there are many other sources around the world and each region produces a product with slightly different characteristics and aromas. This is why we offer so many different types of lavender on our site and how we have become one of the largest importers of lavender oil in the USA

Lavender is most well known for its use in aromatherapy.



Understanding the Benefits

Lavender essential oil can be used by adding a few drops to the bath, mixing it into lotion or massage products, or applying it directly to the scalp or massaging in a carrier into the joints. It can also mix well with many other oils, from pine and sage to cedarwood and nutmeg.

Where to Buy Wholesale Lavender Essential Oil:

 As one of the largest suppliers of Lavender Oil in the USA we believe that we offer the best prices and service in the industry. We do realize that many people aren't interested in switching suppliers though so we put together some tips to assist you when buying your oils. First make sure that you deal with a reputable supplier. Essential oils are one of the easiest and most common items that suppliers cheat on. Very often they cut their oils with a much cheaper carrier. This saves them big money and allows them to sell their product far below market prices. However you end up buying a watered down product that ends up costing much more in the long run. By staying clear of smaller less reputable suppliers you can protect yourself. Second, ask for a C of A for any oils that you purchase. Even though you feel like you are buying from a reputable supplier, it still might be tempting for them to try to cheat and make more money off you. Don't simply buy from a company because their prices are higher. That doesn't always mean they have a better quality. We can honestly say that our essential oils are absolute top quality and have the C of A's to back it up. We simply sell at wholesale prices because we are a high volume importer.


A more detailed look Lavender Oil Benefits:

-Many companies around the USA that sell soap making supplies also sell this aromatherapy essential oil because it is widely used in soap production. This oil is know by aroma therapist's worldwide as one of the most useful of all essential oils.

-As a vapor, lavender oil can be mixed with vegetable glycerin to and diffused in a diffuser. Just add it to a vaporizer with your water and sit in an enclosed area. It can also be sprayed in a shower/sauna for a similar effect. You can even add a few drops to a bowl of hot water and breathe in the fumes.

-Even with all the benefits many insects don’t find Lavender Essential Oil appealing. This is why today many of the all natural as well as conventional insect repellants on the market contain Lavender as one of the ingredients. 


Lavender oil blends well with countless other oils. Specifically, pine, clary sage, cedarwood, nutmeg and geranium.


Lavender has been used for over 2,500 years. First by the Egyptians as a perfume, it was later discovered to have many other benefits. It was first commercialized to the United States and Canada when it was sold by the English Quakers. Today there are countless countries around the world that participate in the production and almost every nation in the world has their own uses for Lavender Oil.

    The best!

    Love this Bulgarian lavender oil. I use it in my big spray formula as well as in my magnesium Tallow Balm. Such a great lavender smell.

    The 40/42 blend, which I bought by accident, does not even smell like lavender. I wasted $43.58 on something I will never use for soap, for therapuetic, for anything. It is the most diluted smelling "essential oil" I have ever barely smelled. Never again. I work hard for my money, and this was a waste.

    Bulgarian Lavender, Yes!

    Posted by KATE B. on 25th Dec 2022

    I love this version of lavender! Previously I'd used 40/42 for my lavender soaps and it was popular, but I tried this one on a whim and immediately got an overwhelmingly positive response from everyone who smelled it. They all said the Bulgarian lavender was better, more floral and closer to natural lavender fields. I'm sold and I'm never going back now. What a great find!

    French Lavender is perfect!

    Posted by K.B. on 24th Feb 2022

    I tried the Bulgarian lavender, and it smelled weak and bland to me; my mom liked it, but it was not the lavender scent I had in mind. I ordered the French lavender to try next. Bulk Apothecary French lavender essential oil is the lavender I have been looking for! It smells like fresh lavender flowers, beautiful and floral and calming, not biting at all. The scent was a little light in M&P, so I bumped up the amount per pound and it was perfect.

    Bulgarian WOW!

    Posted by ALEJANDRO MATTHIESS on 20th May 2021

    Intense! No acceleration, ricing or discolor on CP. New EO for me so I do not know if it will fade after cure process.

    Good product

    Posted by Janet Hanke on 9th Jun 2019

    This lavender is not a sweet scented as I would like, but I cannot afford the Bulgarian, so this works for my bath bombs. It is a popular one and does sell well in both my shower steamers and bath bombs.
