What is the difference between Bulgarian lavender, French lavender, and lavendin?

  • Bulgarian lavender (Lavendula angustifolia) is typically about 46% linalyl acetate and 26% linalool.  Its aroma is more robust and preferred in perfumery.
  • French lavender (L. angustifolia) has a higher linalyl acetate content but contains less linalool than the Bulgarian type.
  • Lavendin (L. x intermedia) is a hybrid of L. angustifolia and L. latifolia and contain as much as 12% camphor.

History:  The founder of Aromatherapy, René-Maurice Gattefossé, started modern research of essential oils when he experienced the benefits of lavender essential oil after applying it to a burn on his hand. The herb's name comes from the Latin word "lavare" which means to wash.  Lavender has a long tradition as a beauty and well-being aid in Europe.  Much modern research has demonstrated the aroma's calming effects.

Specific Safety Information:  Not for internal use.  Dilute essential oils with topical use.  Certain essential oils may be contraindicated with certain medical conditions.  Ask your doctor if you have any questions before use.
