Lavender is a member of the mint family and one of the most popular herbs in the world. In addition to outstanding beauty and fragrance, lavender is amazingly versatile in terms of practical uses. The whole dried flowers are added to teas, baked goods and alcoholic beverages. The buds are also used to make various soaps, perfumes, skin salves and other cosmetic preparations. Powdered lavender flowers are also used in cooking and in making cosmetics, especially where a smooth consistency is desired (body powder, for example).
Lavender Flower (Extra), Grey Color, 1/4 lb
Lavender is an Old World ornamental plant in the mint family that is also commercially cultivated for its highly fragrant blossoms. This variety, commonly called lavandin, is a cross between Lavandula angustifolia, or English lavender and L. latifolia, also known as spike lavender and Portuguese lavender.
Because "extra grey" lavender flowers have a light blue to grey color, this variety costs less than ultra-blue lavender. However, it has a comparable scent profile and is suitable for use in crafts, massage work, aromatherapy and perfumery despite color variation.
