Lavender comes from the Roman word 'lavare', meaning to wash. Lavender was a favourite of the Romans in their bathing rituals and was introduced to Europe by them. Since the 18th century it has been used in soaps and potpourri. Native to the Mediterranean regions it is cultivated primarily in Italy, France and England.
It is thought to be the most versatile of all the essential oils. It is a shrubby plant which has woody branches and long narrow leaves with blue-purple flowers on long spikes. The oil is steam distilled from the cut and dried plant and has a strong aroma and is pale yellow in colour.
A compound tincture of Lavender known as Lavender Drops has been recognised in the British Herbal Pharmacopoeia for over 200 years. It was used during the Second World War for swabbing wounds due to its antiseptic effects. In France it can be found in most homes where it is commonly used as a domestic remedy for all sorts of things such as insect bites, bruises, stings, burns and aches and pains.
This essential oil is the most commonly used. Its actions include: normalising, analgesic, antiseptic, antibiotic, antidepressant, antibacterial, decongestant. It is also an excellent balancing oil used to mentally balance oneself. Good for relieving tension, tiredness and depression. Also used for aches and pains, skin problems, bites and stings and burns.
