"As Rosemary is to the Spirit
so Lavender is to the Soul."
English Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
Native to the Mediterranean, lavender spread into northern Europe with the Romans who took it to ensure a steady supply of their favourite bath oil. Lavender is a beautiful and fragrant ornamental.
It is one of the World's finest perfume herbs. Commonly used in potpourri, lavender is also wonderful in teas, jams, jellies and preserves.
