HISTORY OF LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL
Lavender use has been documented for over 2500 years. The ancient Egyptians used lavender for mummification and perfume.
Romans used lavender oils for cooking, bathing and scenting the air and the name is derived from the Latin verb lavare which means,
“to wash.” The Romans also used lavender oil in soaps and carried it with them throughout the Roman Empire.
In Medieval and Renaissance France, women who took in washing for hire were known as “lavenders.”
Clothes were washed in lavender and laid to dry on lavender bushes. Lavender was used to scent drawers,
perfume the air and ward off infection and heal wounds. It was also recognized in Roman times for its antiseptic
and healing qualities. The Ancient Greeks used lavender to fight insomnia and back aches.
