Spike Lavender is commonly referred to as English Lavender, possibly due to its aroma being what we would associate with “Granny’s lavender”. It has a slightly sharper smell to the previous two Lavenders, due to its camphor content. This lavender is commonly grown at lower levels.

It is also the “wild” lavender commonly seen or sold from Spain. ‘Spike’ is derived from its alternative botanical name, L spica. Spike Lavender has a higher cineole content than the other lavenders and is therefore more useful for respiratory infections. Lavender Spike is not a relaxant.
