Imported from France and sometimes referred to as Lavender Grossoâ€“ this has a very strong, almost medicinal scent. It is less floral than other lavenders. When inhaled, it will ease depression. An herbalist/aromatherapist Jeanne Rose goes so far as to say it helps â€œthose suffering deep anguish.â€
â€œAll lavenders are anti-depressants, but this one gets high marks. It is the least expensive of our four lavenders. This one seems to fall into the â€œlove it or hate itâ€ category. If you are placing an order, ask for a sample of this one, and I'll include a bagged cotton ball with Lavandin on it so that you can make an informed choice on your next order.â€ - Susan Siemers, Owner and Founder, Ceres & Co.
