Lavandin oil is extracted from the flowering tops of lavandin grosso, which are botanically referred to as Lavendula intermedia. Lavandin oil has a pleasant and refreshing aroma, similar to that of lavender oil. The aroma is closer to the synthetic aromas of "lavander". Lavandin, the hybrid lavender, has different chemical and therapeutic properties but is easier to grow & is often sold as "lavender" essential oil by unscrupulous companies. True lavender requires elevations of over 1800 feet to grow. Lavandin can grow at 1000 feet or above, making it an easier crop to produce. Lavandin also grows taller than lavender, and has three flowering heads on each stem, though it otherwise looks similar.


Chemical Properties of Lavender and Lavandin: Lavender is sweet and subtle, with a rich blend of monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes, esters (including linalyl acetate), non-terpene alcohols, oxides, and more. Lavandin is harsher, sharper and contains far more camphor, making it a more lasting, piercing aroma. Like lavender, it is high in linalyl acetate and linalool. Lavandin is often used in soaps, detergents, lotions and hairspray because the aroma is more lasting than that of true lavender. Both lavandin and lavender are non-toxic, non-irritating and non-sensitizing to the skin.

Although lavandin has been noted to have the same calming effect as true lavender, there is one therapeutic use for which the two should never be confused: healing burns.

Since the French scientist Réné Gatefossé accidentally discovered lavender's regenerative power after a laboratory accident, lavender has been famous for healing burns, including sunburns. Lavandin, on the other hand, worsens burns.

Lavandin grosso originated as a woody plant with blue or gray flowers formed by the crossing of two species of lavender—true lavender and spike lavender. The Lavandin plant is a native of France. Lavandin oil is extensively used in perfumery and offers numerous health benefits.
