Lavender is one of the most commonly used essential oils, but did you know that there are around 40 species of lavender? The two most commonly used are lavandula angustifolia and spike lavender lavandula latifolia. You need to do your homework when using these two especially as they both have very different uses in aromatherapy. Lavender has been used since ancient times in perfumery; many would sew lavender into sachets to keep linen fresh and pest free, as well as hung up dried leaves to repel flies and mosquitoes. In divination we use lavender flowers for love, protection, sleep, chastity, longevity, purification, happiness, & peace. You can find lavender in quite a few Friendship Herbals products with a focus on lavandula angustifolia which gives you that calm, relaxing sense of home. Lavender has wonderful antiseptic, antifungal, & antimicrobial properties. You can eat lavender, make a decoction for tea, or use in aromatherapy.
