Grosso lavender produces extremely long and fragrant stems that are great for crafting and drying. It makes up most of the lavender essential oil available on the market due to the large amount of oil this particular varietal produces, however it lacks the many therapeutic benefits that some other varietals have. (In case you're wondering, our Lavender Essential Oil is from Lavender Vera.)
Because the florets produce so much lovely fragrance, Grosso lavender is great for making lavender wands, which is a craft we typically teach during our annual Lavender Festival. We’re so sad we cannot host the festival this year but we did find this wonderful tutorial online so you can make a lavender wand from home!
