A bit of lavender history is still alive in this lovely specimen. Abrial was the first successfully cloned Lavandin. This Lavandin Abrial oil is high in linalyl acetate, one of the benchmark components of fine Lavender angustifolia. ( High Altitude Lavender contains much more linalyl acetate than does its lowland cousins, and aromatically this Abrial is closer to our High Altitude than to our French Mailette.)
Lavandin Abrial also has a significant amount of camphor and 1,8-cineole, making it both an effective mucolytic and expectorant as well as antibacterial. It is much gentler than Spike Lavender, which has the similar effects, and thus more appropriate for diffusion with children. Abrial’s specific components make it a wonderful “support oil” to be used with the various Eucalyptus oils, Tea Tree, and Manuka.
SHELF LIFE: Approximately 2 to 3 years after you open the bottle. Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
