True Lavender plant has the botanical name of Lavandula angustifolia and is a member of the Lamiaceae family.  Lavandula refers to the genus and angustifolia is the species.  The quality of True Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) essential oil will vary if it is wild grown or cultivated.

The essential oil chemotype, quality, and therapeutic properties of True Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) will be affected by the type of soil, pollution and the use of pesticides and fertilisers.  Certified organic True Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) essential oil from a trusted supplier will be guaranteed to not contain any pesticides or unnatural chemicals.     

Chemotypes refers to an essential oil produced from the same botanical species of plant which may look the same on the outside of the plant but will have different chemotypes or chemical constituents inside, due to the location where it is grown and processed.  A wild plant will have different chemotypes and domestic plants will also have different chemotypes.  The ecological factors, harvesting times and age of plant will also create different chemotypes. 

The essential oil chemotypes affect the quality and therapeutic properties. True Lavender plants grown from cuttings are called clones and there are also hybrids called Lavandin and they will have a different botanical name as well as chemotypes and therapeutic properties.

True Lavender Lavandula angustifolia grown from seed has a much more complex chemotype and higher quality essential oil.
