    Are the flowers of this type of lavender and french lavender edible? Can I make essential oil out of them? And what types of lavender is helpful for sleeping? Thanks!

      Hello Iris, English Lavender is the traditional source of oil of lavender. These days many growers are working with hybrids but we don’t put much trust in hybrids. French lavender has a lovely essence as well, and can be made into essential oil. Richo
