How to Choose High Quality Lavender Essential Oil?

Certainly! When it comes to purchasing lavender essential oil, remember that quality often comes at a price. At Lavender Backyard Garden, we can attest that every drop of lavender essential oil is meticulously extracted from hundreds of lavender buds. Read more about how our lavender farm produces essential oils.

Here are some tips to ensure you're getting the real deal:

  1. Check the botanical name on the bottle. Look for names like "Lavandula Angustifolia" or "Lavandula x Intermedia" instead of generic labels like "Lavender Oil" or "Essential Oil of Lavender". This indicates that the supplier recognizes the different lavender species, resulting in more authentic scents.
  2. Consider buying directly from a lavender farm like ours. Lavender Backyard Garden is dedicated to producing high-quality lavender essential oils.
  3. Don't hesitate to ask questions if you're unsure. Trust your instincts and seek clarity before making a purchase.
