History: Throughout history, lavender has been known for its impressive healing powers. Its use throughout the ages as a natural antiseptic, antibiotic, anti-depressant, sedative and detoxifier is still used today to promote healing and prevent or diminish unsightly scar from forming. Ancient Greeks used lavender oil to treat throat infections, constipation and chest conditions. While in Roman lavender flower heads where used in communal baths probably for its antiseptic properties, as well as its sweet fragrance. Many medieval European herbalists used lavender water to help prevent and treat head lice. Small bundles of dried lavender were also placed in the laundry, to make clothes smell fresh and keep moths away. They also treated insomnia and other sleep disorders, by placing small dried bundles inside their pillows. The aroma was also believed to drive away bed bugs. Lavender is adaPETd to living in a dry climate and is native to the western half of the Mediterranean, reaching altitudes of up to 1800 meters. It is believed that the Romans and the Benedictine monks subsequently introduced it to rest of Europe.
