It seems that the major components (there are many minor components) of oil of lavender are: linalyl acetate, linalool, geranyl acetate and geraniol. These substances are also found in other floral oils and scents. If you would like more infrormation about oil of lavender, much can be found in "The Essential Oils" by E. Guenther, Volume III. You would have the best chance of finding this reference at a college or university library. Jerry Franzen
