Thanks for sharing this useful info.

I have a question: are all lavender flowers appropriate? I had at home a plant, but its scent was very very subtle.

No, you should use a kind that smell a lot or you will have a oil that dont smell so good, dont use ornamental kind but the officinalis spicies.
I will add the name in my instructables, thanks for the posting.
