Native to the Mediterranean maquis, lavender is a plant that withstands both torrid and harsh winter temperatures very well and can be found in dry, stony soils to form particularly beautiful bushes. The common name “lavender” was transposed into the Italian language from the Latin gerund “lavare” (to wash) to allude to the fact that these species were widely used in ancient times (especially in the Middle Ages) to cleanse the body. Lavender was, in fact, a valuable plant for the Romans, who put bunches of flowers in the water of thermal baths and used it as a base for refined perfumes and in the preparation of decoctions and infusions used for the beauty of skin and hair.
