Lavender has been in use by humans for over 2500 years! The ancient Egyptians used lavender for mummification and perfume. Romans used lavender oils for cooking, bathing, and scenting the air. Even the name comes from the Latin word “Lavare” which means “to wash”. Its medicinal and cleansing properties have been long understood and cultivated for their aromatherapeutic nature. Even today, you can find lavender in almost any home or body care product. Its naturally soft aromas bring us into a deeper connection within ourselves.
Aromatherapy actually owes its existence to lavender, a humble beginning for a truly magical plant.
