A botanist would tell you that lavender belongs to the Labiatae group of aromatic herbs such as thyme, savory, rosemary, oregano.


It was used by the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans to scent baths and maintain linen.
Lavender oil was distilled in Provence as of the sixteenth century and by the nineteenth century, with the development of industry and perfumery, cultivation of the wild plant began.
