The scent of lavender oil is floral, sweet, herbaceous, and balsamic with woody undertones. It is classified as a middle-note fragrance with an odor intensity of about two out of five. Blending companions include florals, citrus, clary sage, vetiver, patchouli, and fir. Lavender oil has anti-inflammatory actions and is useful on wounds, burns, and insect bites; it is beneficial for a variety of skincare needs as well. Lavender oil can be helpful for muscle aches, headaches, and insomnia. Emotionally, it is thought to release bad habits, unexpressed emotion, and melancholy; it can also be used to support manifesting creative potential, and for the introverted and inhibited. Many species of this classically floral scent are distilled for use in soaps and perfumes. The camphorous "spike" lavender (L. latifolia) is useful for acne skin problems and stiff joints. Another species, lavandin, (L. x intermedia) is a cross between true and spike lavenders. It produces a higher yield of essential oil and is often used to adulterate true lavender oil. Its smell is similar, but it contains only sixty chemical constituents while true lavender has about 160.
