Like other lavender oils, Spike Lavender Oil is floral, fresh, sweet, and herbaceous. However, it is much more camphorous in the aroma. Aromatically, Spike Lavender Oil tends to blend well with the same families of essential oils that traditional Lavender Oil does including other floral, mint, and coniferous oils.

Note that Rosemary Essential Oil, depending on the chemotype, also tends to have a large percentage of camphor. If you particularly like the aroma of Rosemary Oil, you should find the aroma of Spike Lavender Essential Oil appealing.

Spike Lavender Native to the Middleastern  Mediterranean Mountains and in the desert plains of Israel near the Egyptian border. Spike lavender is possibly Nard spoken of in the Torah as one of the ingredients of Ketoret instead of Spikenard. The Ancient Hebrew word for Lavender, in general, is “Nard”.

Safety Information: Due to its camphor content of up to 25%, Spike Lavender Essential Oil should be used with care. Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young do not specify any contraindications for Spike Lavender Essential Oil, but state that it may be mildly neurotoxic.
