* Linalool, and geraniol are natural components of lavender essential oil. Relevant for people with allergies.
Essential oils are extracted from flowers and plant parts. They combine the concentrated power of plants and have various positive and negative effects in addition to fragrance. People with intolerances to certain plants often react to the corresponding essential oils as well. A single essential oil consists of up to 200 chemical components - some of which can have an allergenic effect. Therefore, the EU has defined 26 allergenic components. These must always be listed separately in the overview of ingredients (INCI) and allow people with allergies to recognize that certain products should be avoided.
