What is the difference between Spike Lavendin and True Lavender? The difference is that both are plants, however, one is a hybrid plant. When Lavandula Angustifolia (True Lavender) and Lavandula Latifolia are crossed, a hybrid plant is created. The hybrid, called Lavandula x intermedia, is the plant that produces Lavendin essential oil, otherwise known as Spike Lavendin. Lavendin still has aroma therapeutic properties, but compared to English Lavender it becomes a more inferior oil. The aroma of Spike is a more medicinal aroma due to its higher camphor content, which is sometimes used in cleaning products as an antiseptic for its sharp and robust aroma, while the True Lavender has a more subtle, easy-going, but still strong aroma.
Spike Lavendin is still a good essential oil, however, Lavandula Angustifolia is considered, by botanist, as the Mother of all Lavenders.
