The aroma of Lavandin essential oil is similar to Lavender, but slightly sharper and more penetrating. Many of the "lavender" soaps, lotions, perfumes, etc. that we find in stores are made from lavandin.
Lavandin is a great choice for using in massage blends as well as in a diffuser during seasonal changes.
