Did you know: Lavender is a type of flowering plant in the Mint family and a 'Cousin' to Rosemary. There are 39 known varieties of Lavender, and it is grown all over the world as an ornamental plant, a culinary herb and for essential oil. Lavender essential oil is known to have antiseptic, anti-inflamitory and anti-fungal properties. It is often used in aroma therapy to treat insomnia, anxiety and depression. Essential oil should never be applied directly to the skin without dilution. It is easy to make a 2% solution with a carrier oil such as jojoba, coconut, almond, sesame or sunfloweroil. If you only need a little, 1 drop of Lavender oil to 1/2 teaspoon (2.5ml) of carrier oil is your ratio. Essential oil should not be eaten, but Lavender buds certainly can and are used in all sorts of sweet and savory recipes. However you decide to enjoy your Lavender, it is sure to be delightful!
