Lavender 'Adria'

 
Lavender hybrids are indicated by the X in the botanical name, a cross between angustifolia (officinalis) and latifolia to increase production. This particular cross, growing conditions and distillation produces an oil that is about equal in esters (linalyl acetate) and alcohols (linalol). It is bacteriacidal and antiseptic. Although there is a honey sweetness to initially, the strong scent and is not as sweet or floral as the Bulgarian or Fine French. It can be used for all Lavender applications, but I think of this Lavender for cleaning scrapes and other owies. It goes on a bandage and into a balm that I make. When my oldest son slammed his finger in the door and peeled off most of the pad, I poured this directly on. I had just received the shipment and it was at the door with us.
A really special woman from Croatia established a distillery to revitalize a community. This lovely oil is a product of a long distillation time and low pressure.
