  Lavandin Grosso (no ratings yet)
Lavandula hybrid var. Grosso, organically produced, steam-distilled blossoms, France.
- Relaxation & stress relief
- Antiseptic
- Oil of choice for scabies & other skin diseases


To learn about the entire Lavender / Lavandin family, including uses and recipes go to our About Notable Essential Oil Collections page.

Like all Lavandins, this variety is a hybrid of Spike Lavender and Lavender Vera. Its aroma is less floral than Lavandin Super (the Grosso refers to its discoverer, not its scent!). It has a touch of spice to its aroma, mixed with the herbal lavender notes.

I find the Super a bit more relaxing and still prefer it for relaxation and stress relief, but for inflammation, the Grosso definitely has a role to play. Lavandin Grosso contains terpineol-4 and linalyl acetate which make it a good antiseptic and stimulating oil. Useful in treating skin conditions such as acne and sluggish skin. I’ve seen it recommended as the oil of choice for scabies and other infectious skin diseases.

It is a good addition to cold and flu remedies with its proven germ killing ability, as well as its ability to stimulate the respiratory system and ease breathing.

Jane Buckle states that Grosso was shown to be very effective against non-tubercular opportunistic mycobacteria (NTM) which is common in AIDS. She also states that “Grosso is high in linalol for infections.”

A blend of Lavandin Grosso and Spike Lavender is recommended for respiratory disorders, either by inhalation, or massage.

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 2 to 3 years after you open the bottle.  Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half-full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
