"Known primarily for the pleasant floral scent that it provides Lavender oil, linalool is a naturally occurring monoterpene alcohol (a volatile unsaturated element composed of two units, carbon and hydrogen) that is present in high concentrations in many flowers and spices. It comprises approximately 30% of the chemical makeup of Lavender oil, but Coriander, Cilantro, Basil, and Petitgrain essential oils are also rich sources. Although commercially it is primarily used for its scent, when isolated, linalool has been shown to have a number of health-benefitting properties. Linalool has been examined for its cleansing properties, ability to promote calmness and relaxation, and support of several body systems.*"
