Who doesn’t love lavender? From its beautiful purple flowers, its wonderful aroma, to its healing properties, what doesn’t this plant do? Here at Verdant Alchemy, lavender is one of our most powerful ingredients in a wide array of our products. While we all know and love the plant many of us don’t know much beyond its surface so let us teach you about its many benefits.
Lavender plants are small shrubs with greenish-grey leaves and beautiful purple flowers that spike out on the top of the plant. The plants first originated in the western European part of the Mediterranean region. Lavender got its name from the Latin word ‘lavare’ meaning ‘to wash’ as the Romans used Lavender to scent their clothes, baths, and bodies. Its fragrance is caused by the oil glands impeded in the tiny plant hairs covering the flowers, leaves, and stems.
Besides its heavenly smell lavender has many health benefits which is the main reason why we use this ingredient so frequently.
