Lavender Flower Extra

Lavandin Plant

Lavandula hybrida

Origin: Spain
From£18.69 per kg

Lavandin is a naturally occurring hybrid between two lavender species: Lavandula angustifolia and Lavandula latifolia (native to Mediterranean Europe). Lavandin is especially known for producing a lot of essential oil, up to 10x more than English lavender.


With its unmistakable fragrance, lavender is renowned for its use in the beauty industry, but this striking plant has many other applications. Central to lavender’s popularity as a botanical ingredient is its abundant, floral fragrance – it’s both highly distinctive and highly prized. Both the Romans and the Greeks used the plant as a fragrance, while the Egyptians favoured its use as an embalming ingredient.

The whole flowers can be used to add a floral taste to cakes, biscuits, desserts and savoury dishes – it pairs particularly well with honey. It’s a common ingredient used in the Province region of the South of France – look out for lavender-infused honey, lavender marshmallows or refreshing lavender sorbet.

Lavender oil is often blended into skincare ingredients as it has a soothing, calming, sleep-inducing and anti-inflammatory effect.

Dried Lavender flowers can be used in potpourri, to make soothing sleep pillows or scented sachets for your wardrobe. It’s believed to have calming and sleep-inducing properties hence why so many sleep-focused products make good use of this flower.

The booming gin industry is always looking for ways to surprise its loyal customers, and lavender has been finding its ways into a variety of gins. But it takes a skilled distiller to know how to get the best from lavender. To get just the right note from your lavender it’s best added at the end rather than allowed to steep with other ingredients.
