Called English lavender, this type offers the most medicinal properties. It has sweeter scented flowers because it contains less camphor (than French). These lavenders are used more for their therapeutic properties. They induce relaxation, reduce inflammation, relieve a headache, normalise the sebum glands, stimulate wound and burn healing without scarring, heal irritated skin, and act as a deodorant. They are anti-spasmodic, antiseptic, anti-microbial and are good for all complexions.
