Spike Lavender

Lavandula latifolia

Description

The effects of Spike Lavender (Lavandula latifolia) vary enough from Lavandula angustifolia that it is worth highlighting the differences. The significant chemical differences between the two Lavenders are in the percentages of esters, ketones and oxides. The esters in Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) offer an antispasmodic and calming effect. The ketone camphor, in Spike Lavender (Lavandula latifolia), offers great circulatory, rubifacient and mucolytic properties, and the 1,8 cineole in Spike Lavender is a powerful expectorant.

Safety + Shelf Life

No safety issues specific to this oil. However, according to Tisserand it could be mildly toxic, based on camphor content.  While there are no safety issues reported with pregnancy we would like to be cautious if there is a high camphor content. 

The suggested shelf life is 4-5 years.

Smells Incredible!
I got this oil based on a recipe because he needs help with anxiety. This works great in inhalers and smells good all by itself straight out of the bottle.

Love this oil as a decongestant.
Love this oil as a decongestant. I mix it with Frankincense and peppermint to combat sinus headache.
