The Fragrant and Lovely Lavender

Did you know that Lavender is actually a member of the mint family?  This lovely flowering herb is extremely popular.  In addition to being known for it’s heavenly scent, the Lavender plant is also very lovely.  There are over 36 varieties of Lavender that are available and they are generally broken down as English and Non-English varieties

Non English varieties of Lavender include Yellow lavender and the French Grey blooms along with the more traditional purple color.  The blooms of these varieties are generally pineapple shaped.  Traditional English Lavender varieties have much more delicate blossoms, tiny flowers on stems and tend to be in the light lavender to dark purple color families.

All lavender varieties are scented and are used in everything from soaps to oils and even in teas.  Dried Lavender retains it scent and can be used in sachets as well as floral arrangements.
