What Type of Lavender is Edible?

Lavender is a member of the mint family and should be recognized for its culinary uses, as well as its scent and medicinal uses. 

There are currently 45 different species of lavender plants. English Lavender is the most commonly used lavender for culinary purposes. However, only one species of French Lavender - Provence - is used for cooking.

We have been only growing Provence Lavender for the last 13 years.
