Lavender is a middle note

Aromatherapy's middle notes:

Aromas categorized as middle notes are typically warm, rich, and powerful. Their scent lasts for two to three days.

The body is highly receptive to these fragrances, making them ideal for healing and relaxation. Soothing and restorative.

Middle notes are ideal for healing treatments that require repeated sessions, such as for chronic muscle pain or respiratory issues. They are also effective for treating migraines, PMS, and menstrual pains.

Some middle notes should not be used during pregnancy, so check each oil before use.

Typical middle notes:

Floral oils: Chamomile, geranium, lemon balm

Warm spicy oils: Clove, nutmeg, anise, black pepper

Herbaceous oils: Fennel, juniper berry, marjoram sweet, rosemary

Understand the Notes of Scents

In aromatherapy, the scent of an oil is often referred to as a "note." The secret behind a truly great fragrance is finding the perfect balance between the notes. Aromatherapy is about scents, and with practice, you will be able to recognize an oil's fragrance even if you might not know which plant the oil comes from. For example, you will be able to distinguish between citrus and floral scents or woody and minty fragrances. The scent is determined by the chemicals an oil contains. Because oils that smell alike often contain the same chemicals, they typically have similar properties.

Oils are categorized into so-called base, middle, and top notes. Knowing an oil's note is important when blending oils. A good blend—like most perfumes—normally contains a mix of all three notes, where the ratio between them varies depending on what the blend is used for. Additionally, an oil can contain more than one note—for example, ylang-ylang contains traces of all three notes and is often considered the perfect fragrance.

When creating a new fragrance, whether it's for a perfume or an aroma diffuser, you should use between 4-7 oils per blend. First, decide what type of blend you want to create, such as a refreshing one, and then choose notes with these characteristics to make up the main content of the blend. Dissolve the mixture in a carrier oil if you want to use it on the skin (12 drops in 30 ml of carrier oil).

The Healing Family

Lavender is part of the Lamiaceae Plant Family

The Lamiaceae family, is a distinguished group in the botanical world, renowned for its aromatic members which are frequently utilized in both culinary and therapeutic contexts. This family includes some of the most beloved herbs and essential oils that are staples in both kitchens and aromatherapy practices.

Habitat and Climate Preferences
Lamiaceae plants are versatile and can be found in a variety of climates, thriving particularly well in temperate regions. They typically prefer sunny locations and well-drained soils. Despite their resilience, these plants flourish in Mediterranean climates where conditions of warm, dry summers and mild winters provide an ideal environment for growth. This adaptability also extends to higher altitudes in the tropics, where several species can often be found.

Regional Adaptations
Globally, members of the Lamiaceae family are widespread. In Europe, herbs like lavender, sage, and thyme are cultivated extensively and have become synonymous with the culinary landscape of the region. North America hosts a variety of native and naturalized species of mint and other Lamiaceae, adapting well to the diverse climates across the continent. Similarly, in Asia, particularly in regions like India, herbs such as basil and patchouli are integral to both the local aromatic profiles and traditional medicine.

Culinary and Aromatic Qualities
The Lamiaceae family's connection to the digestive process is embodied in their common use as culinary herbs. Herbs like basil, oregano, and marjoram are not just flavor enhancers; they also aid in digestion and can alleviate various gastrointestinal discomforts. Their robust, often fiery fragrances stimulate the senses and can reawaken a sense of vitality, making them popular in essential oil form for therapeutic use.

Other Examples of Essential Oils
from the Lamiaceae Plant Family

- Basil and Oregano: Known for their bold, warm flavors in cooking, these oils also offer antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

- Peppermint and Spearmint: Energizing with a cooling effect, these mint oils are often used for pain relief and to enhance mental clarity.

- Rosemary and Sage: Both are thought to improve memory and cognitive function, in addition to being powerful antioxidants.

- Thyme: Its oil is potent in antibacterial and antiviral properties, making it a strong ally during cold and flu season.

- Melissa (Lemon Balm): Known for its soothing properties, it is used to ease stress and help with sleep.

- Patchouli: Often associated with skin care, it also helps in grounding and balancing the emotions.

The Lamiaceae plant family stands out not only for its culinary importance but also for its substantial role in natural health practices. Whether grown in a garden, wild in nature, or distilled into essential oils, these plants continue to impart their invigorating and healing qualities to those who know how to harness their power. The versatility and widespread appeal of the Lamiaceae family make it a foundational element in both traditional and modern herbal practices.

The Main Chemical Composition of Lavender Essential Oil

The main chemical composition of Lavandula angustifolia, commonly known as true lavender essential oil varies somewhat depending on its origin, climate, and cultivation methods. However, the oil is generally characterized by a few primary constituents that contribute to its distinctive properties:

  1. Linalool - Typically makes up 20-45% of the oil. Linalool is an alcohol with a floral and slightly spicy aroma. It is known for its calming and anti-inflammatory properties.

  2. Linalyl Acetate - Usually comprises 25-45% of the oil. This ester is responsible for lavender’s sweet, floral aroma and is also credited with much of the oil's relaxing and anti-inflammatory effects.

What is a Chemotype in Essential Oils?

Chemotypes in essential oils refer to the different chemical compositions that can occur in the same plant species due to variations in their growing conditions, harvest times, or geographical locations. These variations lead to the production of essential oils with distinct chemical profiles, each possessing unique therapeutic properties. Understanding chemotypes is crucial for aromatherapy and medicinal applications, as the efficacy and safety of the oils can vary significantly based on their chemical makeup.

Here's a breakdown of what defines a chemotype and why it matters:

1. Genetic and Environmental Influences: A chemotype is often influenced by the plant's environment, such as altitude, climate, and soil composition, as well as genetic factors. These variables can affect which chemical compounds are predominant in the oil.

2. Chemical Composition: Each chemotype of an essential oil will have a dominant chemical compound or set of compounds that characterize it. For example, Rosemary essential oil can be found in several chemotypes, such as cineole, camphor, and verbenone, each named after its principal component, which dictates its therapeutic properties and uses.

3. Therapeutic Properties: The presence of different chemical compounds means that each chemotype can be more effective for different health concerns. For instance, the cineole chemotype of Rosemary is excellent for respiratory issues due to its expectorant properties, whereas the camphor chemotype is more suited for pain relief and circulatory problems.

4. Safety and Application: Some chemotypes may be safer or more appropriate for certain applications than others. For example, an essential oil chemotype high in ketones might be more neurotoxic and thus used with more caution, particularly around children or pregnant women.

Pet Safe

If you have dogs and cats in the house, these are the recommendations on how to diffuse your essential oils in a safe way: only use 3-4 drops of a particular essential oil in a water based aroma diffuser (UltraSonic).

Use no more than 4-6 drops total if using more than one essential oil, or use the amount in the diffuser recipes.

Be sure your aroma diffuser is in an area where your pet cannot knock it over. Always diffuse in an open area with the door open so your pet can leave the room if desired.

If your pet is sensitive to an oil you are diffusing, stop diffusing and get your pet outside for some fresh air. Contact your veterinarian if you are concerned.



GRAS status (General Recognized as Safe)

Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes.

As a best practice, conduct a patch test inside your elbow at least 24 hours prior to use.


Essential oils are sensitive to UV: always keep them in their original bottles (amber glass with codigoutte).

We advise you to store them in a cool place without light after opening.

For your mixtures, cosmetic and culinary preparations, always use a new bottle to avoid interactions.
