French Lavender Essential Oil
HIGH ALTITUDE ORGANICS® Lavandin Essential Oil is steam-distilled from the flowering tops of organically cultivated True French Lavandula Hybrida var Grosso (Lavandin). Common names: Lavandula hybrida or Lavandula intermedia. The two main species Lavandula angustifolia and Lavandula latifolia (Spike Lavender) were crossed to create Lavandin oil.
Lavender Latifolia is a evergreen shrubby perennial which has been grown commercially for various uses including aromatherapy. Lavender Latifolia foliage can be distinguished from Lavender Angustifolia due to its narrow coarser leaves. Blue gray flowers are produced on this plant held up on long stems(hence the name spike) which grows wild in the Mediterranean. Spike Lavender exhibits camphory, menthol-like aroma, while Lavendula Augustifolia has an intoxicating Lavender aroma.
