LLF Essential Oil: Lavandula x intermedia 'Grosso' 5 ml
Organically grown, hand-harvested, and distilled right here on the farm with our beautiful handcrafted alembic copper still, ensuring the highest quality, pure lavender essential oil.
'Grosso' essential oil is the most commonly used lavender essential oil in the bath/beauty industry and is great for use in soaps, salves, and other bath/beauty products. Grosso contains terpineol-4 and linalyl acetate which make it a good antiseptic and stimulating oil. It is especially helpful in treating skin conditions with its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. While it still has most of the calming properties of the angustifolias, it is slightly less therapeutic. It is still wonderful to use in a diffuser to create a calming atmosphere in any room.
The Herbal Academy describes its benefits below:
"Lavandin may sometimes offer the best of both worlds, being calming yet strongly antibacterial, but that also means that it is a weaker performer than either one of its “parent” plants [angustifolia and latifolia]. Lavandins are primarily distilled for the perfume and fragrance industries
