This classic essential oil will inevitably become one of our most popular with its garden-fresh bouquet and Lavender notes. With an aroma that is sharper than other Lavender plant ‘cousins’ it is ideal for use in soaps, salves, fragrant perfumes and uplifting body massage oils. 

Lavandin is a hybrid of True and Spike Lavenders. True Lavender Lavandula angustifolia yields an essential oil with sweeter top-notes, whereas Lavandin, (Lavandula × intermedia and also known as Dutch Lavender), contains higher levels of camphorous terpenes, adding sharper top-notes to the aroma. There are a wide variety of Lavandin varietals; this one is among the most popular. 

The Lavandin's are widely cultivated for commercial use, since their flowers tend to be bigger than those of English Lavender and the plants tend to be easier to harvest, but Lavandin oil is regarded by some to be of a more base-quality than that of English Lavender, with a perfume less sweet. On the commercial market, Lavandin is typically used in the detergent, soap and body care industries as it is a bit less costly than alternatives. It yields a high amount of essential oil due to a larger flower stalk, and is less complex in its chemistry than Lavender.

Dilute 12 drops per 1 ounce of carrier oil and use in a skin-nourishing massage. 3.) Add 6 drops to 1 ounce of Castille soap and 1 cup of Epsom salt for added magnesium absorption.

What is the difference between Lavender and Lavandin essential oil?
  • Lavender oil is often employed for its anti-inflammatory, headache-relieving, immune-supporting and skin-healing properties. With a fresh and powdery aroma that highlights sweet, woody, herbaceous and floral notes, the luscious scent of Lavender is well-known and frequently sought in perfumery. Lavender’s less expensive cousin Lavandin often gets overlooked. With high amounts of linalool and linalyl acetate, Lavandin helps heal skin, offer relaxation, induce sleep and soothe aches and pain including toothache. Its aroma is sweet, floral and true to Lavender. It can also be used interchangeably with Lavender in bug repellent blends.
Is Lavandin essential oil good for hair?
  • Lavandin is a wonderful addition to hair care. It helps balance oily scalp, reduces scalp irritation and boosts hair nourishment. A few beneficial ways to use Lavandin for hair include 1.) Add 12 drops Lavandin per ounce of unscented shampoo. Wash hair thoroughly and be sure to massage the uplifting shampoo into your scalp before rinsing. 2.) Make a pre-wash hair oil serum with 6 drops Lavandin, 3 drops Peppermint, 3 drops Rosemary Moroccan and 1 ounce Argan oil. Massage the oil into your scalp and wait at least 30 minutes before washing it out. 3.) Add Lavandin essential oil to our DIY hair scrub recipe.
What note is Lavandin essential oil?
  • In perfumery, scents have ‘notes.’ A scent can be a top, middle or base note. Lavandin is considered a middle note. Each aroma note reacts differently based on its volatility. Top notes tend to be the most volatile, meaning they don’t last that long after they’ve been exposed to air. However, top notes are generally the strongest aroma when you first smell a scent. On the other hand, base notes are the least volatile, meaning they last much longer and are not the strongest aroma when you first experience a scent but they grow stronger after being exposed to air.
Is Lavandin good for sleep?
  • Lavandin essential oil, Lavandula x intermedia, is an excellent alternative to Lavender essential oil. It’s slightly more affordable, has a slightly sharper aroma and contains the same linalool and linalyl acetate as Lavandula angustifolia that relaxes and calms the mind, works well in facial blends to firm skin and also in blends for sleep. It is a cousin of Lavender and has a very similar aromatic and similar properties as Lavender essential oil. Lavandin can also be added to soften blends when suffering from colds and cough.
