I've read that 'Jaubert' is often used to produce " l' essence de lavande" (essential oil) in France. Lavandin (Lavandula x intermedia) has higher levels of terpenes including camphor than English lavender(Lavandula angustifolia). This adds a sharper overtone to the fragrance. Unlike wise English Lavender, Lavandin is therefore not suited for culinary use.

A overall precaution for using Lavender/Lavendin to much or to often should be placed.
