The origin of lavender is believed to be from the Mediterranean, Middle East and India and is an aromatic member of the mint family. Lavender derives its name from the Latin ‘lavare’ meaning ‘to wash”.
The Romans used lavender to scent their baths, beds, clothes and even hair. Lavender was also recognized for its antiseptic and healing qualities. The Ancient Greeks used lavender to fight insomnia and back aches, and today it is most recognized for its calming abilities and can be especially helpful for combatting stress and depression.
