What are the strongest scents of lavender?

As a lavender farm in New Zealand, we grow mostly Lavandula x Intermedia for lavender essential oil distillation. The aroma is calming and relaxing - a bit sharper than an Lavandula Angustifolia, due to its higher Camphor and 1,8-Cineole content.

100% award-winning pure Lavender Essential Oil from Lavender Backyard Garden

 

Some studies found that lavender aroma helps to increase in deep sleep and reduce awakenings in both men and women. We have designed natural sleep aids based on the lavender essential oils from Lavandula x Intermedia.
