Lavandin essential oil, while similar to Lavender, is not a “true” lavender. It is a cross between lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) which grows at higher altitudes and spike lavender (Lavandula latifolia) which grows lower on the hillsides. It has a very sweet and floral aroma similar to “true” Lavender.
The higher camphor level in Lavandin will give it a more pungent aroma than our pure fine lavender. And because it has a lower ester content, it is not as powerful a calming presence as our fine lavender. Unfortunately many unscrupulous vendors use lavandin in their “lavender” oil, denying their customers the full potency of true lavender.
