Going back as far as 2,500 years; in ancient times, lavender was used for mummification. The latin root for lavare (to wash) was used as a perfume for bathing or scenting the air. When you smell a piece of lavender, it has such a soft and soothing scent. When you see the color, it has such a calming effect on our mood. Just thinking about it, is making me feel relaxed (lol). Now, I invite you to look at some of the beautiful lavender images I put together.
