Type of Lavender
This is one of the exceptions where a Lavandin may be incorporated. After all the variety, “Provence,” is a Lavandin. I do not recommend any other Lavandin. Some use Phenomenal but it is bitter. Any English Lavender would work, however, the variety Folgate is recommended for it’s peppery flavor profile.
