Spike lavender contains a fresh, leafy note that is reminiscent of rosemary or eucalyptus with hints of lavender beneath. While spike lavender is from the same lavendula family as traditional lavender, this sibling has unique properties that allows for it to stand out on its own.
Spike lavender has potent healing properties and has shown to be useful in treating burns, athletes foot, fungal infections, various viral infections, bronchitis, insect stings, scar tissue formation and wounds. It is also noted for its ability to ease rheumatic pain, flatulence, dyspepsia, colic, neuralgia and menstrual cramps.
Spike lavender is a known analgesic, antifungal, decongestant, expectorant and anti-spasmodic oil. It may be used as an insect deterrent and can assist wound healing, cuts, grazes, muscular spasms, muscular contractions, abdominal cramps, headache, migraine, acne, pimples and insect bites.

Great oil, perfect for making products, but I did noticed it has a bit of a bitter smell compared to regular lavender
