Lavandula angustifolia, known as common or true lavender, is the classic lavender that most people are familiar with and is part of the mint family. This little greyish purple flower is known for its sweet floral aroma and taste with a hint of mint. Lavender buds are used whole in beverages, baked goods, and as a seasoning.
The dried buds are most noted as a component of the French classic blend Herbes de Provence and as the “secret” ingredient that offsets the flavor of bergamot in Lady Earl Grey tea. Lavender is a multipurpose plant and is wildly popular in the health and beauty industry for
therapeutic and topical benefits. This purple super-flower has powerful antioxidant, antimicrobial, sedative, calming and antidepressive properties making its sensational aroma that much more valuable.
