Lavender species have been hybridized over the centuries. One type of hybrid, the x-intermedia (a cross between Lav. Angustifolia and Lav. Latifolia) contains many varieties, including "Grosso" which produces most of the world's lavender essential oil. This oil is used primarily for scenting soaps and lotions. Another Lav. x-intermedia is "Provence" which is known for its wonderful dried bud scent. Provence is also used for cooking.
Lav. x-intermedia hybrids are generally long-stemmed and the color of the flowers vary from deep purple to white. In general the oil from Lav. x-intermedias are used for scenting soap and personal care products. They are not generally used in the perfume or aromatherapy industry, however, there are exceptions to this.

INTRODUCTION INTRODUCTION Forget the flu shot. A soup based on more than 50 cloves of garlic, onions, thyme and lemon will destroy almost any virus that enters its path including colds, flu and even norovirus. As we sneeze and cough our way through these dark months of contagious nasties, garlic is…

A wonderful article describing a visit to White Oak Lavender - one of our members.
Driving along highway 276 south of Harrisonburg, you might not even notice it's there. I didn't, and I've driven that road innumerable times. But with a speed limit of 55 and a hypnotic and familia...

Will there be a conference in the Pacific Northwest in 2015?
I am interested in a bulk order of Lavender for next year mid-August for a wedding in TX. To get a good idea of the flowers I would like to order some samples from various growers in the next few weeks, since I understand there is a bit or variation. Who would y'all recommend?
I'd like to grow lavender for profit someday, by selling lavender oil and honey. Any tips for growing lavender in South Alabama? From what I can tell, Grosso is the best variety for my climate. Will it survive all our rain, or does it need to be shielded?
Now that summer is in full swing, do you have a favorite after sun recipe that uses lavender?
One to try: 1 cup + 1 Tablespoon aloe vera juice, 1/4 cup Fractionated Coconut Oil, 1 tsp. vitamin E oil, 8 drops Lavender EO, 8 drops Melaleuca EO, 8 drops Roman Chamomile EO. Combine in a glass spray bottle. Shake before use to incorporate ingredients. Ahhh, sunburn relief! Keep in the fridge for an extra cooling sensation!
