Spike Lavender is a sharper, more camphoraceous cousin of True Lavender. It has a fresh, spicy, and distinct camphor note to its scent. Spike Lavender is also high in medicinal value but not as sweet and floral compared to True Lavender.
- Not to be confused with True Lavender (Lavandula Angustfolia), Spike Lavender (Lavandula Latifolia) stands out because of its hyt camphorous aroma, mainly attributed from its high percentage of 1,8- Cineole and Camphor content. Its constituents are often likened to oils such as Eucalyptus and Peppermint - sharing similar benefits in relieving coughs, clearing congestion and promoting easy breathing.
