There is not just one type of lavender but many! 39 species of flowering plants compose the group of lavenders. They grow in Africa, South West Asia, Arabia, Iran and South East India and, of course, Southern Europe – more exactly in the Mediterranean region.
With their blue, violet or lilac color, lavender fields create charming spots in the landscape, not to speak about their delightful fragrance.
Lavender can be used in our wardrobes, tucked into small linen bags to perfume our clothes.
Under the shape of essential oil, it helps cure bee or mosquito stings. How to use it? Apply a drop of fine lavender essential oil directly on the sting or mix a few drops of oil with warm water and white clay and apply this blend on the sting until it dries. Then rinse with clear water.
Lavender can also be eaten! In the United States, people can buy lavender syrup and eat lavender scones and marshmallows. However, it is not used in traditional Mediterranean cuisine nor in French cuisine in general.
In aromatherapy, lavender plays an important role. Used in balms, cosmetics and perfumes, it is loved for its soothing, antiseptic and curing virtues.
Used in a pillow mist, lavender fosters relaxation and helps getting in condition for a good night of sleep.
At Villa Soleya’s online store, you can shop for a great variety of lavender products: lavender pillow mist, linen soap, shower gel, bath salt, perfumed cushion, body and massage oil or eau de toilette.
