Lavender, the flowering plant whose name is generally thought to have derived from the Latin lavare (to wash), referring to the use of infusions of the plants. In fact, in the 14th century, a lavender was the name given to a washer-women who did the laundry. Or could it very well be the other way around? No one knows!

Lavender is native to the Old World, the south of Europe and Northern Africa, but cultivated extensively in other countries for its perfume.

Lavender is native to the Old World, the south of Europe and Northern Africa, but cultivated extensively in other countries for its perfume.

It was always widely used as a perfume ingredient and in soothing oils, also in dried form in sachets put between bedsheets and clothes when storing.

Lavender represents purity, silence, devotion, serenity, grace and calmness. Its colour, on the other hand, signifies royalty, elegance and luxury. In fact, in Byzantine times, purple colour robes were worn exclusively by their emperors ruling over the lands which is Turkey today. Much later in England, Queen Elizabeth I banned everyone but close relatives and royal family members from wearing purple.
