This is the time of the year for essential oils of the newest crop to arrive. In the coming weeks we shall highlight some of our favorite seasonal arrivals. This week we shall look at two oils indispensable for therapeutically oriented aromatherapy: Lavandin grosso and Lavandin super. Today most of the cultivated areas of Provence are planted with types of Lavandin ( Lavandula x hybrida), a hybrid between True Lavender ( Lavandula angustifolia) and Spike Lavender ( Lavandula spica). Lavandins are essential oils with highly beneficial qualities at very reasonable cost.
