Lavender is a favourite to many.

It is believed to have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to heal minor burns and bug bites.
Research suggests that it may be useful for treating anxiety, insomnia, depression, and restlessness.

Lavender is a member of the mint family and is known for its beautiful purple flowers. It has a sweet floral scent and can be added to bathwater or drunk as a tea. If you infuse it in some water, you can spray it on your sheets to aid in a good night’s sleep.

Roll some lavender oil on your temples to soothe headaches. I stick sachets of Lavender in my drawers just like my grandmother did. Do you remember going to the CNE and seeing those piles of Lavender to put in your drawers? I do!!

There are so many uses for this versatile flower.
