Therapeutic Properties / Health Benefits
Not to be confused with True Lavender (Lavandula Angustfolia), Spike Lavender (Lavandula Latifolia) stands out because of its strong 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.
