Comments: Less camphorous than some lavender oils. It makes a nice blend when mixed with Lavender abrialis.

Comments: I was concerned about the essential oil being stored in a clear plastic bottle. I felt that the plastic bottle contents biosphenols? could break down into the oil...thus changing the quality and the smell of this organic product.
FNWL Response: Cathryn, you purchased this oil in the 16 oz. size. It is customary for suppliers to ship larger quantities of essential oils in plastic to avoid the risk of breakage and the significant increase in shipping expense imposed by shipping the heavier glass containers and added shipping materials needed to protect the glass bottles. We do mention this on our main Essential Oil Category Page in bold letters. Essential Oils are flammable and highly concentrated. Having a 16oz. bottle break during shipment is not something you want, can be overwhelming and can seriously damage the finish on furniture and clothing. A number of our customers are artisans and manufacturers that immediately use up the large quantities of oils that they purchase. We do strongly encourage you to transfer any essential oil that you do not plan to immediately use into glass. We sell empty glass amber bottles within our Packaging section. For essential oil bottling and storage tips, visit our Information Library article on the subject: Essential Oil, Absolute & CO2 Storage Tips and Guidelines.
"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
