Description: French Lavender comes from France, but that's not the only reason it stands out. Because it comes from a very high altitude, it makes it stand out in the Lavender species. The two terpene alcohols that dominate Lavenders is what makes French Lavender different than its relatives.
French Lavender is high in Linalyl Acetate and contains less Linalool. This creates a nice aroma in French Lavender, but also it makes it a desirable choice for those wishing to use Lavender in combating inflammation, pain, and bacteria. Like any Lavender essential oil, French Lavender is great for calming and relaxing.
This French Lavender is true Lavender.
