Perhaps the most well known and popular of all the essential oils, and for good reason - Lavender has been used for thousands of years for its healing, antiseptic and sedative properties.

Lavender oil likely sparked modern interest in therapeutic essential oils after the ‘father of aromatherapy’,René-Maurice Gattefossé, attributed the healing of his hand from gas gangrene to Lavender. He went on to successfully use it in on wounded soldiers in the First World War.

Lavandin vs Lavender
Lavandin oils are produced from hybrid Lavender species Lavandula x intermida (from which it gets its name Lavand - in), which is a cross between so called 'True' Lavender (L. angustifolia) and Spike Lavender (L. latifolia). This hybrid yields much more oil than True Lavender and the oil is also higher in camphor. With the higher yield helping to keep the price down and the added punch of the camphor notes, Lavandin oils are often the preferred choice for soap and commercial personal care products.
Lavandin oils are further sub-categorised into classifactions such as Gross, Super, Labrialis etc...
At PureNature we stock Grosso and Super which have different levels of Key constituents.
GROSSO: Higher in camphor and 1,8-Cineole, lower in Linalyl acetate and Linalool
SUPER: Lower in camphor and 1,8-Cineole, higher in Linalyl acetate and Linalool
