Lavender, a labiatae that is particularly characteristic of Provence, smells good, looks good and does good things for your health. The precious lavender oil is extracted by steam distillation from the flowering panicles and stems of the freshly harvested plant. It is widely known for its ability to help calm stress and anxiety and to help promote sleep.
Lavender has a beautiful, versatile aroma and smells floral, fresh, sweet, herbaceous and sometimes slightly fruity. It’s also anti-bacterial and a must-have.
