Lavender is a stunning creation. It is one of the most desired and appreciated plants, used by the Ancient Greeks not only for the wonderful aroma it exudes but also for its antiseptic attributes.
Its healing powers can be used to close wounds, or even for face rejuvenation which provides a thorough cleaning inside and out. It can also be consumed as tea to fight any chest infection or relieve anxiety and headaches.
Plant lavender in your garden and enjoy its gifts. It is best planted in the early days of April and May as the (alkaline) soil starts warming up.
Lavenders are drought tolerant therefore they don’t need watering as they enjoy the benefits of photosynthesis. Watering is needed during the winter.
It can grow up to 24 inches tall and doesn’t spread like other herbs do.
Lavender can be a natural relaxant if you put a few drops of lavender oil on your children’s pillow at night – which helps with respiratory problems as well. You can also make your own lavender pillow by using dry lavender leafs.
What’s more? Its powers can restore partial hair loss as well as relief itchiness.
