Description: Lavandin grosso is a cross between the two main types of Lavender, Lavandula x intermedia. It distinguishes itself from other types of lavender by its high camphor content sometimes between 5-12% in concentration. This contributes to its deodorizing properties, but makes it a poor choice for first aid applications. While it can be used to safely sterilize veterinary cages, hospital rooms and kitchen counters, it is not as healing, nor as sweet. While lavender grown in higher altitudes (such as the Kashmiri variety) is more floral in scent, lavandin is more herbaceous and medicinal. Some prefer its stronger aromas, and it is much more effective in treating coughs and colds, circulatory disorders and inflammation than its counterparts. Lavandin grosso also repels insects like ants, mosquitoes, moths and carpet beetles extremely well (camphor is the smell of mothballs, after all). Due to its high-yielding nature, lavandin essential oil is less expensive than some other varieties of lavender oil, but that does not mean it is lesser quality it is just different. Depending on your desired use, it might be the perfect choice for you.
