Lavender Tea Recipe

Benefits of Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
Lavender, with its remarkable blend of fortifying and soothing properties, stands as a testament to nature’s healing prowess. Abundant in flavonoids and volatile oils, this elegant flower derives its name from the Latin word “Lavare,” meaning to wash, a nod to its historical use in cleansing rituals. Revered for centuries, lavender has been a beloved addition to soaps and bath products, revered not only for its ability to purify the body but also to nurture the spirit.
