Lavandin: Lavandula ×intermedia
Why lavandin? Lavandin essential oil has a similar aroma to true lavender—a soft and sweet floral-herbaceous, and refreshing aroma with a pleasant, balsamic-woody undertone. With a slightly stronger woody aroma, lavandin oil has increased in desirability for inclusion in soaps. Not to be confused with lavender Lavandula angustifolia, lavandin L. ×intermedia is a hybrid of the lavender plant, and it can produce different effects from L. angustifolia.
Quality Assured: Our organic lavandin essential oil is responsibly sourced from the USA. The essential oil is steam distilled from the flower stalks and flowers of the lavandin hybrid flower. Every batch of oil is produced without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Additionally, our expert aromatherapists here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally assess all of our oils—using touch, taste, smell, and lab analyses—to ensure that your essential oil is suitable for use and entirely free of adulterants.
