Facts
Today lavender still holds as the herb associated with love and healing. In the First World War when modern antiseptics were depleted, the public was asked to gather up garden lavender so the oil could be used to dress war wounds. Lavender is a marvelous antiseptic, as well as an herbal remedy. Wrapped in cushions, dried flowers can help to induce sleep, and ease stress or depression. It can be brewed into a tea, either drank or applied, and used to relieve headaches, sinus congestion, hangovers, tiredness, exhaustion and tension. Hopeful romantics still know the value of lavender, and many a heart have been swayed by the gift of this wonderful plant and the products produced from it.

Today lavender is cultivated all around the world. Bulgaria, England, France, New Zealand, Australia and the USA are all known for growing lavender and producing essential oil. To create the pure oil, the plants are harvested when in full bloom and the flower tops are then steam distilled to produce the essential oil.

Lavender’s aroma is rich and camphoric sweet, with an herbaceous floral note. It is a truly magical plant and those who have ever been enticed and seduced by its sweet heady perfume become enamored for life. A walk through a field of blooming lavender is a stroll that is never forgotten.
