Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) has a scent with a wonderful blend of fresh, floral, clean, and calm. Its dynamic aroma has made the flower a classic for perfumes, soaps, fresheners, and beauty products.
Lavender oil is extracted mostly from the flowers of the lavender plant, primarily through steam distillation. The flowers of lavender are fragrant in nature and have been used for making a mixture of dried petals and leaves for centuries. Traditionally, lavender essential oil has also been used in making perfumes. The oil is very useful in aromatherapy and many aromatic preparations and combinations are made using lavender oil.
