Lavandula Hybrida (Lavendin) Oil
Lavandins (Lavandula hybrida) are a hybrid class of lavender, many of which were originally grown for the French perfume industry. Lavandin flowers tend to be bigger than those of English lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) and easier to harvest, so they are widely cultivated for commercial use. The fresh, fragrant flower spikes are harvested and steam-distilled to produce lavandin essential oil.
