lavenderLavender is a very popular flower; used for it’s amazing smell, beautiful color, and plant qualities. It’s actually not just a single plant, but is an entire genus of over 39 species of flowering plants that grow all over the globe. It prefers dry and temperate climates, which is why the Mediterranean region has become a mainstay of production.

Lavender is not new. It has been popular since Roman times, and the name “lavender” is actually from the Latin word “lavare”; which means to wash or to clean. It is believed that Lavender was used heavily in the Roman Baths- and thus was named after it’s purpose of cleansing. Disoscorides, a Greek Naturalist, was the first to document the medicinal attributes in the first century A.D. During the Middle Ages, Lavender was considered an aphrodisiac, and often used in potions created for seduction.

The beautiful smell aside, Lavender has many health benefits. It is often used for disturbance of sleep, depression, nervousness, or over-active digestion. As a topical, Lavender has been found to be an effective treatment for joint pain.

From a phytochemistry perspective, Lavender oil contains 30% Linalol which is non-toxic to humans, yet functions as a natural microbial. This makes it a great additive for multiple types of health treatments.
