Item details

This 1/8oz bottle Lavender Oil for clay features a dropper so your lavender oil can be measured accurately into your favorite waters, lotion, clays.

Straight from France, the steam distilled lavender oil is kept in a sealed dark bottle to preserve its potency.

I originally started using this with my metal clay work, but like to add it to all of my water mister bottles just for a pick-me-up-scent! It only takes a single drop and you can add water several times without needing to add more oil. It seems to enhance the viscosity of the water.

1/8 oz = 1 dram = 3.6 ml

METAL CLAY ARTISTS:
Use lavender oil to mix your own oil paste. Use 1 drop per gram of paste. Starting with a fresh jar of paste is best.

Oil paste is used to attach two fired pieces of silver metal clay. Scratch both surfaces, clean throughly with baking soda, rinse, then slather on the lavender oil paste. Attempting to sand the paste smooth will cause the paste to flake off of the fired silver, so brush the paste on carefully to get as smooth a surface as possible. It is best to overfill the area and file the excess off after firing. Power polishing tools are great for this.

Lavender oil can also be used to retard oxidation in bronze clay. I add a drop to my water bottle. I also use Lavender oil to mix my paste from bronze clay scraps. It keeps much longer and doesn't oxidize. Simply cover your mixing dish tightly with plastic wrap.

DO NOT leave the dropper in the bottle. Remove it and seal with the original lid. Keep everything stored in a dark place for best results.

Estimated Shipping
Shipping to
Zip or postal code

We ship out your order within 12-24 hours after it is placed in most cases. Usually we are able to get it into the mail by the next day. If there will be a delay of any kind, I will contact you via email with the reason and an estimate of when it will be shipped. We want you to be able to start enjoying your purchase as soon as possible!

Each item is packed with care to ensure against damage. Because we take great care in packing and selecting the best method to ship, we believe that paying extra for insurance is well, just a waste of money. You may ask for insurance if you would like and it will be billed to your order. All packages are shipped both first class or priority mail and most arrive within just a few days. Some take a little longer. Some items are actually cheaper shipping priority mail, and are automatically insured),than first class, so compare rates before committing!

The shipping amount is calculated based on my best guess of the total SHIPPING weight of your purchase, NOT the true weight of the item(s). We use USPS (United States Postal Service) exclusively because they have the best rates for shipping the type of packages we send. By processing your shipping through the USPS you and I will receive a tracking number so we will know where your package is on it’s journey to you!

In addition to the actual USPS cost of shipping, a flat $1.50 handling fee is added to the shipping. This is to cover the cost of packaging, paper, labels, ink, tape…..those necessary things to get the order to you. I do not include this in the price of each item to inflate the items price, but it is added PER PACKAGE. It is an unavoidable cost I ask you to share with me.

Sometimes the calculation and charge on shipping on your selection of multiple items may be way above the actual costs of mailing it. In such cases I will refund amounts that are more than $2 above actual costs (actual ship price + handling fee). This also applies to calculations which come in too low to cover the costs to mail. As shipping rates and the online calculation programs change it sometimes ‘burps’ out a ridiculous amount! You can pay it and trust I will refund the excess, or stop and ask me about it prior to completing your order. I would be happy to manually calculate shipping and set up a reserved listing for you!

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

We ship around the world! Lately though the costs have become unreasonable for some items. Therefore be aware that the price calculated for your order is the best we can do. We often ship at a loss because of these changes. You can ask prior to purchase and I can give you an estimate of the costs to ship if you’d like.

Customs and VAT fees in your country are your responsibility and not part of the shipping charge from us.
