Lavender has long been considered the herb of love since its delicious and romantic scent is adored by almost everyone. It is a flowering plant of the mint family known for its beauty, its sweet floral fragrance, and its multiple uses. Lavender derives its name from the Latin ‘lavare’ meaning ‘to wash”. Throughout history, people have used lavender to scent their baths, beds, clothes, and hair. Women used to put sprigs between the sheets and inside a pillowcase to promote restful and pleasant sleep. The soap carries the same tranquil scent, and you won't be able to decide if you want it in the shower, or on your linens shelf. You might need to have more than one around.
