Lavender has been a much-loved herb for thousands of years, and for good reason! The pretty purple flower stalks are a beautiful sight and have a lovely, comforting aroma! The Common English lavender in particular has one of the highest levels of essential oils of the entire species, meaning it has a stronger fragrance when fresh and dried. The flowers can be eaten fresh in desserts, or can be dried into a potpourri. You will find so many uses for this amazing herb!
