Celebrated since ancient times, for the Greeks lavender was one of the many ”nards” (perfumed myrtles). It was used to disinfect and perfume the thermal baths, an institution dear to the Roman world but slightly smelly. It wasn’t until the Middle Ages that the term ”lavender” appeared, from the Latin verb lavare (to wash). Its use was associated with disease control as bad odors were long believed to spread disease. It was one of the simple ones grown in the monks’ gardens. Its use in perfumery was particularly enforced from the 19th century. True lavender is one of the most important plants in aromatherapy: far from just having a pleasant scent, it provides an extremely versatile and effective essential oil. Nowadays, while now.
