Lavender and the most widely cultivated species, Lavandula Angustifolia is grown as a crop in various parts of the world and also popular as an ornamental plant for gardens and decorative pots. Fields of purple lavender are a common sight in many parts of the Mediterranean and there are a few sites in the UK.
The oil from the flowers is used in soaps, moisturisers, candles and pillow sprays, putting lavender at the very top of the list of favourite fragrances. Used in aromatherapy it has a calming effect which makes it a popular choice in the beauty industry and it can be found in many different bath and skincare products. The gorgeous aroma can help reduce anxiety and stress allowing you to relax and fall asleep more easily.
