The most popular one is Lavandula augustifolia, I was used to have a lot of plants when I was in France and I still take some from my parents garden, dry the flower, put it in little pouch and then in my wardrobe to have a nice smell. Lavender is not only a plant with fresh and floral scent but has many benefits for our health and skin care.
Little History :
- Lavender has been discovered over 2,500 Years ago. The Egyptian used it for mummification and as a perfume
- The Romans used the lavender oil for bathing, cooking and purifying the air. It got the name from the roman “lavare” which means laver (in french) or to wash (in english)
Today Lavender has so many virtues and that is why we use it in our skincare. It’s been used both cosmetically and therapeutically. It is a powerful antioxydant, antimicrobial, antidepressive , has calming effect and sedative.

- Slows aging process with powerful antioxydants
