The word lavender derives from the Latin root “lavare,” which means “to wash.”
The earliest recorded use of lavender dates back to ancient Egypt where lavender oil played a role in the mummification process.
Lavender later became a bath additive in several regions, including Persia, ancient Greece, and Rome. These cultures believed that lavender helped purify the body and mind.
Ethnobotanical Uses: Since ancient times, Lavender has been used as a bath additive to ensure the skin stayed hydrated and fragrant. Today, we use lavender in many of the same ways. You can use lavender as a sleep aid, moth repellent, and lavender oil as a natural insect repellent.
