Lavender is an aromatic evergreen shrub of the same family as mint. This plant, also called true lavender, fine lavender, or English lavender, has deep roots in Provencal tradition. It grows wild in the region’s highlands, particularly in the Alpes de Haute Provence. This French region is one of the world’s key lavender-producing areas. The shrubby bush has a multitude of upright stems rising above a bushy mass of hairy, greyish-green leaves. The fragrant, intense blue-purple flowers bloom in summer.
Lavender has been in use since antiquity, including by the Romans, who used it for bathing, laundry, and medicinal purposes.

The flowering tops are harvested in July and August, when the summer heat stimulates the rise of the essence into the flower’s secretory glands. The reaped lavender tops are then left to dry to allow excess moisture to evaporate. This one- or two-day wilting period is essential to ensure good-quality lavender essential oil.
