Spike lavender (Lavandula latifolia) essential oil has a higher content of cineole and camphor than traditional lavender, contributing to its purifying power. From room sprays and diffusions to chest balms and sauna blends, spike lavender soothes and cleanses.
The spike lavender plant is tall and somewhat less hardy than other species of lavender. It grows well at the lower elevations and warmer climates of Spain and Portugal. Aura Cacia Organic Spike Lavender Essential Oil comes from Spain. The oil is distilled by steam distillation.

Our manufacturing facility and all of our organic essential oils have also been certified organic by the established third-party certifier, Quality Assurance International (QAI).

A few drops can be added to cold care ointments to supplement their effectiveness.
