Let’s count the many reasons we love lavender. A member of the mint family, this hardy perennial is renowned for both its lovely purple hue and singularly unique fragrance. The ancient Greeks and Romans picked lavender to perfume their baths and clothing, while also revering it for a multitude of medicinal properties.
Lavender is a triple-threat cocktail of goodness for mind, body and spirit. In aromatherapy, this flowering botanical instills an unparalleled sense of calm and tranquility; used in herb form in a tea or other dish, lavender soothes many minor ailments while infusing a delicate, distinctive flavor; and, when applied topically in essential oil form, it works wonders for your skin and hair (Note: lavender essential oil should never be ingested as it can be poisonous).
