This is 100% PURE Lavandula Officinalis. It smells exactly the way it's supposed to. This is REAL lavender.

I see some reviewers complaining that it smells "watered-down", altered, or different from other oils they've bought. Be sure to check that you weren't buying a lavender hybrid in the past, known as Lavandula x hybrida, or LAVANDIN. It's commonly marketed and sold as real lavender, as companies can claim it is a "type of lavender". While it IS technically a TYPE of lavender, it differs from real lavender in a few ways.

Most Notably: the scent of LAVANDIN is much stronger than that of REAL lavender. It's medicinal properties vary somewhat as well. REAL lavender can be used to help heal burns, while the hybrid can actually worsen them!

LAVANDIN is used because it's easier to grow, and therefore cheaper. NOW Lavender oil is NOT the hybrid, but the real thing. I believe it is a superior product, but for those of you that prefer the stronger smell, look for Lavandula Hybrida, or "Lavandin" instead. If a bottle doesn't list which "breed" it is, you can't be certain which type it is. Maybe you could call whichever company that is selling it and find out? I would hope they would tell you, at least! NOW, however, actually lists the name on the bottle as being Lavandula Officinalis, or "official lavender". It can also be called Lavandula angustifolia, Lavandula vera, among other names. There are dozens of different species of Lavender, so you may come across other names as well. The way to tell the difference between real and hybrid is this: if there is an "x" between genus and species names (Lavandula x intermedia) then it's a hybrid, and should smell stronger. Hope that helps. :D

I'm not a purist and I don't have the olfactory to pick apart it's fragrance so I'll break it down like this. It is an oil. It smells like lavender to me. A little dab on a cloth near the fan at night and it fills the room with aroma as we drift off to sleep. A little goes a long way. I'm happy with it. My wife is happy with it. /the end

Good quality.

If you mix a few drops of this with olive oil, it's a great anti-wrinkle face oil.

Ok, unless you're going to buy a gallon of lavender oil at a time, this 4 oz. bottle of lavender oil by NOW is the best deal you can get for 100% *high quality* oil. There are cheaper oils, but I've tried almost all of them, including at least a dozen from eBay, and none of them have this combination of quality and price. I'm a massage therapist, so I'm picky about oils and I know what I'm talking about, as I've been buying/comparing oils constantly for the last 15 years or so. This is the best lavender you're going to find unless you move up to DoTerra or Young Living, which are barely perceptively better but cost many, many times as much.

We use this on felted woollen balls in the dryer instead of dryer sheets - a few drops to leave the laundry smelling wonderful, especially good for bedding and towels. One bottle lasts us about a year so good value!

I use this product all the time and it is good for many uses, but was surprised that the larger bottle does not come with a dropper. This is why I didn't give it a five star. Pouring it directly from the bottle can cause a lot of waste from pouring too much and spilling it.

My big mistake. It was not worth the lower price.
I detected a irritating smell from synthetic chemicals.
Instead of having healing properties, it causes an allergic reaction to my body.

I found a few negative reviews with the same judgment as mine.
"The smell is very artificial, overpowering"
"The scent of this oil is a bit strong and not that pure as other lavenders oils"
"I felt nausea after smelling it."

So I did some research and found shocking facts - Dark side of the industry.

These are from a online article:
******************************************************
"100% PURE IS NOT 100% PURE ESSENTIAL OIL
It can be labeled 100% pure and only requires 5% pure essential oil in it (the rest can be synthetic).
So this labeling gives no indication of quality.

True lavender oil (Lavandula angustifolia) is expensive and difficult to find.
Most of the lavender oil sold in America today is actually the hybrid, Lavandin, grown and distilled in China, Russia, France and Tasmania.
It is shipped to France and cut with synthetic linolyl acetate to improve the fragrance.
Then propylene glycol, DEP or DOP (odorless solvents) are added and it is labeled as <Lavandula officinalis>.
Many times it also goes through heat processing to burn off the camphor the hybrid contains and then thinned with more linolyl acetate to appear as lavender.
These bottles line the shelves of health food stores, herb shops and department stores, selling for $5.00 to $7.00 per half ounce.
Unfortunately, most consumers don't know the difference."

I found a very interesting site that showing 3rd party test results.

I've been making my own household and beauty products for years and using essential oils in them for their corresponding properties. I use lavender oil in almost everything. It has a soothing and relaxing scent, that I love, it cures headaches and eases pain and tension, it's anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, it can help heal scars and lessen and prevent wrinkles, battles hair loss, and the list goes on. I've used Young Living, Aura Cacia, and Mountain Rose Herbs. All of those brands are of excellent quality and exactly what I expect. They're all also pricey, but after purchasing this brand, I believe the price is worth the quality. You get what you pay for, and I was very hesitant to purchase this, but with our tight budget, the amount of EO's I go through, and the great reviews this product had, I decided to go for it. I've used this brands carrier oils and have had no complaints. This lavender oil, however, is awful! It's smells very medicinal, almost a cross between baby powder and Bengay. It isn't pleasant AT ALL! It's not relaxing, soothing, nor comforting. I could get past the smell, as I use it mostly for it's other properties. BUT with such poor quality, I'm wondering if it even has any of those properties at all... I highly advise not purchasing any of this brands EO's. If you use them for aromatherapy, it's a complete waste! If you want them for their beneficial qualities and are trying to save a few bucks, buy at your own risk. Personally I'm considering throwing this out and re-purchasing it in a brand I trust. I certainly won't be buying this ever again!
