Linalool is used as a scent in 60–80% of perfumed hygiene products and cleaning agents including soaps, detergents,shampoos, and lotions.
It is also used as a chemical intermediate. One common downstream product of linalool is vitamin E.
In addition, linalool is used by pest professionals as a flea, fruit fly and cockroach insecticide.
