Different Varieties of Lavender

I think that it is safe to say that lavender is one of the most favorite essential oils in aromatherapy.  It is simple to use and can be used by nearly everyone.  Lavender essential oil also has a number of therapeutic properties.  However, did you know that there are about 39 species of lavender, some of which are suitable for therapeutic use and some of which are not.  In addition, some varieties are also called by the name of the country from which they are produced, adding to further confusion!  Lavender is simply not just lavender :)
