purple flowers are sparsely arranged on spikes at the tips of long bare stalks and
produce small nutlet fruits. The fragrance of the plant is caused by shining oil glands imbedded among tiny star-shaped trichomes (plant hairs) that cover the flowers, leaves, and stem.In ancient Greece, Theophrastus referred to the healing qualities of lavender’s aroma. Dioscorides in
his famous work “De Materia Medica” reports that levender’s consumption helps relieve
indigestion, headaches and irritation of the throat. At the same time Dioscorides considered it
suitable (external use) for treating wounds and skin diseases.
