Product Abstract: The Lavender plant is a woody evergreen shrub, up to one meter tall, with pale green, narrow linear leaves and violet-blue flowers. The entire plant is covered with oil glands, which are in the star-shaped hairs that cover the plant. Lavender has a long history of being used since ancient times; its name originates from the Latin lavare, 'to wash', as the Romans added lavender to their bathwater. Differences in soil, altitude and temperature, precipitation and seasons contribute to subtle changes in the scent from one lot of Lavender to another.
