About the Plant:

Lavender Stoechas (also known as Spanish or Stoke Lavender) normally grows as an evergreen shrub, although it can grow up to 7 feet tall depending on the sub-species. Although it is fragile and not that winter hardy, it can grow in a range of harsh conditions.

Its leaves are greyish in color and are densely covered with short matted woolly hairs. Each tiny pink to purple flower appears at the end of a bract. A number of these bracts and flowers are clumped together to form a spike on the top of a slender leafless stem. The long bright purple (and in rare cases white) flowers at the top of the spike are actually bracts (modified leaves) rather than flowers. These long flowers are sometimes called “rabbit ears.” The flowers bloom from late spring to summer.

Where It Grows:

Native to the Mediterranean region, Lavender Stoechas grows wild mainly in Spain, Portugal, and on the western coastline of Morocco. Amrita Aromatherapy is proud to have Lavender Stoechas Organic Essential Oil from Spain.

Traditional Uses and Lore:

Lavender Stoechas generally wasn’t used in cooking. But it is probably the type of lavender that the ancient Greeks and Romans used to scent their bathwater.* The word Lavender comes from the Latin root “lavare” which means “to wash”.

This plant has a long history. Apparently, the ancient Greeks called it “Stoechas” because they found it on the Hyeres Islands off the French coast. At the time, the Romans were ruling these islands and calling them the “Stoechades”. It is thought to have been brought to these islands from its native Mesopotamia. Later it was brought from these islands to France and later England. That’s why it is sometimes called “Greek Lavender” or “French” or “Spanish” Lavender. It was used medicinally in England until the middle of the 18th Century.*
