Lavandin is an aromatic evergreen shrub that is much larger than true Lavender. This hybrid apparently evolved naturally near the seas in Spain, Italy and France. It is now commercially produced in these same countries. Lavandin is used almost exclusively for scent, but is also is a popular choice amongst both aromatherapists and massotherapists for its constituents and pleasant floral scent.
Lavandin it is thought to be beneficial in easing congestion, coughs, colds and flu when diffused into the air, as well as providing a sense of relaxation. It is also widely used in the bath or added to massage oil for treatment of muscle and joint aches, relieving stiffness and clearing the sinuses and lungs.

Lavandin Essential Oil (Organic) 15 ml
Simply put - we are not doctors, and are therefore not able to make recommendations for treating specific conditions and this includes route of administration of any oil. Essential oils are concentrated distillates of the essence of the plant - like medicine, some are good in small amounts but can be dangerous in large amounts, particularly for small children, pregnant women or the elderly. It is our position that anyone who intends to take essential oils internally should only do so under supervision of their family doctor.
