Lavender is an herb rich in history and culture. Long prized for its scent and healing properties it evokes a sense of calming and rest within all who encounter its wonderful heady and unmistakable aroma. In ancient Rome lavender was recognized for its healing and antiseptic qualities, its ability to deter insects, and for washing. The name of lavender comes from the Latin word ‘lavare’ meaning ‘to wash’, and was used as a ritual bathing herb. Lavender was later regarded to ward off evil and in Medieval times a cross made of lavender hung over the door provided a safeguard against disease and evil in general.
The scent of Lavender can help induce sleep, and ease stress or depression. It can used to relieve headaches, sinus congestion, hangovers, tiredness, exhaustion and tension. The antiseptic qualities of lavender will soothe mild burns and inflammatory skin conditions such as dermatitis, psoriasis, and eczema.
