Essential Oil Lavandin (15 mL)
Essential Oil Lavandin
The Lavandin, plant from which this essential oil is obtained, is not a natural plant in the true sense, because it was born as a result of the hybridization of two plants with the scientific names Lavandula Angustifolia and Lavandula Latifolia. That is why Lavandin is scientifically known as Lavandula Hybrida and Lavandula Hortensis.
The aroma and medicinal properties of Lavandin are quite similar to those of Lavender, but they are more intense and sharp, since it is a hybrid.
Lavendin essential oil is distilled from varieties of French Lavender (so-called Lavandin). This pure essential oil has similar properties to English Lavender but with its own distinct scent. Lavendin essential oil can be used for relaxation in the bath, or sprinkled on a pillow, for relieving headaches, for minor burns, or as an antiseptic. The oil has also been effective for insect stings and car sickness.
AROMA: Lavandin essential oil has a light floral aroma, similar to lavender oil – just sharper and it is clear in colour.
HISTORY OF USE
History of Lavandin (Grosso): It is a hybrid variety of plants developed in the early 18th century and the essential oils extracted from these hybrid varieties were initially used for manufacturing soaps, perfumes and certain other personal hygiene products. France is known as the major producer of Lavandin plants and essential oils. Lavandin essential oils are comparatively cheaper than True Lavender varieties. This is because unlike Lavender, these hybrid varieties can be grown as a commercially viable crop and are more tolerant to various climatic and growing conditions.
Lavandin Grosso is named after its discoverer Grosso and it reflects true qualities of both of its parentage with the camphoric aroma of Lavandula latifolia and the frost hardiness of Lavandula angustifolia. Among the numerous other Lavender hybrid plants, Lavandin Grosso is the most predominantly chosen plant by the commercial Lavender farm growers as it is easy to grow in most regions and produce abundant Lavandin flowers that contain ample amount of essential oils.
The big and bright flowers of this plant are also used for making sachets (keeps your clothes fresh and protect from moths and other insects) and the long stems are used in making Lavender wands. Initially, Lavandin and its essential oil were used as an analgesic and antiseptic for relieving pain, inflammation and for healing wounds and skin infections. Lavandin flowers were also used in making tea that was trusted to discharge excess mucous deposits and to assist breathing difficulties.
