There are many different species and varieties of lavender just as there are many different roses and apples. Plant size, flower shape and colour, leaf shape and colour are the most obvious observable differences. Fragrance and essential oil differences are sometimes more subtle.
Lavender House carefully selects lavenders for particular uses. Fresh light perfumery lavenders, fragrant aromatherapy lavenders, and more robust sharp insect repelling lavenders each have their place.
We craft more robust pure essential oils of lavender and sweet natural camphor into blended waxes designed to allow diffusion over an extended period.
Our natural Clothing Protector blocks are useful to help protect and fragrance woollens, linens, clothing, and paper. Try keeping one in your suitcase to avoid musty odours
(Natural camphor, not to be confused with modern naphthalene which is a petroleum derived synthetic ‘camphor‘).
