(Lavandula officinalis) Lavender is a flowering perennial herb that is native to the Mediterranean, primarily Spain and France. While it is now cultivated in many other places, a vast amount of the lavender available for purchase today is still grown in France. Lavender has been used for both cosmetic and culinary purposes for thousands of years.

These beautifully fragrant flowers can be found in lotions, soaps, eye pillows, bath blends, massage blends and more. Muslin bags filled with lavender make a fabulous sachet for your clothing drawer or in the dryer to infuse your clothes with this heady smell.

A popular French blend of herbs for cooking, called Herbes de Provence, sometimes contains lavender flowers and is used on chicken, vegetables and meat. Lavender also enhances tea, cookies, cakes and more.

Brew 1 tsp of herb in 1 cup of water at 212º - steep for 5 minutes.
