Lavender Spike Pure Essential Oil
Lavender Spike's camphor-like smell is (not surprisingly) a result of its high camphor content, which sets it apart from other lavender varieties. Lavender Spike also contains a relatively high amount of 1,8-Cineole, a compound found in eucalyptus oil. These chemical characteristics make Lavender Spike an especially useful essential oil for respiratory support and pain relief.

Quote from Li on the forum:
"Spike lavender is high in camphor so if you have medical conditions such as epilepsy or are pregnant, it is not recommended that you use spike. (Also don't use spike lavender on children or an elder). For acne go with the Super PEO, much gentler but effective."
