Lavendin essential oil has a sweet, floral, herbaceous aroma that is similar to yet sharper than Lavender. It is a useful expectorant and analgesic, and is also commonly used in the perfume industry.
Lavendin essential oil is a cross between true Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) and Spike Lavender (Lavandula latifolia). This is apparent in its scent, which is less ‘fruity/pear drops’ than Lavender, but not as penetrating and camphoraceous as Spike Lavender. The Lavendin plant is generally larger than true Lavender and has a higher yield which makes it a less expensive essential oil to produce. It is therefore commonly used for fragrancing perfumes and toiletries and for aromacraft items such as soap, pot pourri and bath salts.
