What is Lavender?
The lavender has been known for its actions for many centuries. It took its name from the Latin verb 'lavare' meaning 'wash', because the ancient Romans used it in their baths(lavare-levandula) It was also widespread for spirits (Spir. Lavandulae) and skin diseases. It is used for its aroma in ethereal bath oils and perfumes and is still closely related to the modern perfume industry in France. Its demand is so great that only 1,500 tonnes of lavender essential oil is produced in France every year.
