Common Name: Lavandin Grosso
Botanical Name: Lavandula x hybrida Rev. (L. angustifolia Miller x L. latifolia Medikus)
Parts Used: organic flowering tops
Processing: Steam distilled
Main Chemical Type: Monoterpenol
Common Uses: Very anti-inflammatory and the best choice for pain. Germ killing due to the high linalol content. Stimulates and supports respiratory system. Helps with skin conditions, acne and diseases.
Special Notes: Not the lavender you grab for insomnia, but rather the one you keep in your first aid kit for wounds, pain and injuries. I always have a spray bottle with this lavender handy for those aches and pains that pop up with my fibromyalgia. Contains terpineol-4 and linalyl acetate (antiseptic and stimulating). Notice this is a monoterpenol oil where other lavenders are ester oils.
