Addendum(s)
 Note
Chamomile makes a great ground cover and its a plant that can take a fair amount of abuse. "Like a Chamomile bed, the more it is trodden, the more it will spread."

Note 2
Chamomile (Roman and German) and Hyssop are well known for their ability to "help" heal ailing plants located near them. Planting Chamomile or Hyssop in the garden is always beneficial for the surrounding plants and is known to protect them from bacterial invasion. If you don't happen to have a Chamomile plant laying around an alternative is to mix 2 or 3 drops of essential oil in a cup of water, mix thoroughly, and sprinkle or spray this solution onto suffering house plants, garden plants, etc.

Plant Growing Tips
Sow the seeds outside in late spring (after frost has past), 4 to 6 inches apart in semi-rich soil with full sun. Harvest flowers and leaves mid to late summer for teas, cooking, potpourri, or essential oil distillation.

Abstract: 
There are over 400 species of Geranium plants, most of them cultivated for ornamental purposes. The most common species used for extracting essential oils are Pelargonium graveolens, Pelargonium odoratissimum, and Pelargonium radens. Other oil producing species include Pelargonium incrassatum and Pelargonium roseum and are known to produce "Rose Geranium" essential oil. The problem with Geranium plants, however, is that they are so cross-bred that it is often times difficult to determine the difference, if any, between "Geranium" essential oil and "Rose Geranium" essential oil. For this reason, I have chosen not to make a distinction between the two oils.

Geranium oil coming from the Reunion Islands ("Bourbon Type" Geranium oil) is the highest grade Geranium oil in the world - and as such, the most expensive.

Addendum(s)
 Adulteration Risks
Geranium oil is often adulterated. This oil is used heavily in the perfume industry, therefore, folks are always looking for a way to get the scent for cheap with no concern about theraputic quality. Always be sure of your source when purchasing Geranium essential oil.

Caution
Geranium essential oil is produced from the species Pelargonium, NOT from the species Geranium. Oil produced from Geranium macrorrhizum is known as Zdravetz.

Abstract: 
Currently there are over 50 common varieties of lavender being cultivated worldwide, Lavandula angustifolia being only one of them. Keep in mind that only a handful of them produce essential oils for use in aromatherapy. An excellent resourse for further research into the various species and sub-species is The Genus Lavandula by Tim Upson & Susyn Andrews.

Generally speaking, it takes about 30 pounds of Lavender flowers and stems to produce 1 pound of lavender oil.

Occationally a Lavender supplier will advertise or otherwise mention that their particular Lavender oil has a "high ester content", "40% ester content", "50% ester content", "boosted ester content", etc. Personally, I would view such advertising to be a bit of a red flag - meaning I would be concerned that the oil had been adulterated or somehow altered from its original authentic state. Often extracts from Lavandin are used to "boost" the ester content of otherwise authentic Lavender oil. Obviously "boosting" an authentic oil is going to disturb its natural balance and may not yield a desirable result. Drawing from David Stewart's chocolate cake example (The Chemistry of Essential Oils Made Simple, pg 312) - if we were to "boost" the amount of salt in the chocolate cake recipe, the cake may end up tasting a bit salty...

If the Lavender oil does have a naturally occuring high ester content then that will likely be reflected in a higher price and a "higher quality" - meaning the oil will be less camphorous and more soothing in nature.

Some of the highest quality Lavender oils are said to come from the species of Lavandula angustifolia and Lavandula vera which have both been cultivated in England and France --- Lavandula angustifolia most commonly found in England; hence the name English Lavender and Lavandula vera more commonly found in France; hence the name French Lavender

 Plant Growing Tips
Sow the seeds outside in late spring (after frost has past), 18 inches apart in alkaline soil with full sun. Plants grow best in dry, sandy or rocky soils that drain well. Harvest flowers for teas, cooking, potpourri, or essential oil distillation.

Addendum(s)
 Caution
Take care when purchasing Peppermint as I have seen a fair number of "Peppermint" bottles that have "Mentha arvensis" written on them. "Mentha arvensis" is used to produce Cornmint, a lower quality oil.

Plant Growing Tips
Sow the seeds outside in late spring (after frost has past), in most soils with partial sun. Harvest leaves when desired for teas, cooking, potpourri, or essential oil distillation.
