Lavender

Lavender’s latin name, Lavandula, comes from the word ‘lavare” or “to wash”. Lavender was used by the ancient Romans to scent the public baths. Women who washed clothes were called “Lavenders” because they spread clothing over lavender bushes to dry. 

 

Lavender has been used for at least 2500 years, used in the mummification process in ancient Egypt. Monasteries have planted Lavender in mass amounts in “psychic gardens” for hundreds of years.
