Bit of History: Lavender comes from the Roman word “lavare” meaning to “wash”. This reflects the fact that lavender was a favoured aromatic used in their daily bathing rituals. Although the Greeks burned lavender twigs to ward off plagues, it was the Romans who spread the popularity of this shrub throughout Europe. However it was Rene-Maurice Gattefosse’s observation of the dramatic healing effect of Lavender oil when he burnt his hand in a laboratory accident that led to him researching essential oils in greater depth. Uses: If you could have no other essential oil in your house, then lavender would be the prime choice, if only because it is so effective in treating burns and scalds.
