"Oil of lavender, when made by distilling flowers through the alembic, surpasses all other perfumes.." (Dioscorides)
Lavender is a native of the lower Alps bordering on the Mediterranean, and this region is still the main centre for lavender oil production today, although English lavender oil is famed for its quality. The Romans used lavender flowers in their public baths, and this has given rise to the name of the plant, from the word ‘lavare’ meaning to wash.
At Pots & Potions, we like to include (French) lavender oil in our preparations on account of its soothing and relaxing qualities. That, and the fact we like the smell.
