History and Origin
Lavandin and True Lavender share the same origins. Lavendin is the result of the hybridization of two lavenders, true lavender and wild lavender, with botanical and pharmacological properties averaging those of their ascendants. Bees, with cross pollination, were the first to realize this hybridization. Lavandin super is the result of such hybridization. It presents characteristics of both true lavender and spike lavender. This variety shares the antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties of true lavender. But its yield in essential oil is more important than lavender, which explains its inferior price.
