Beloved around the world for centuries, Lavender gets its name from the Latin word “lavare,” meaning “to wash,” and was used to repel the fleas that carried the plague. The colorful herb was sought by ancient Romans, who added Lavender to their baths for its antiseptic qualities and lovely aroma. The scent was thought to encourage amorous feelings in men while preserving the chastity of women. This inspired unmarried girls to sneak Lavender into the pillows of their love interests and hang their damp linens on Lavender bushes to absorb the fragrance. Not surprisingly, the oil is prized by perfumeries who want to add depth, complexity and romance to their blends.
