Art: Conversation in Lavender by Artist Deanne Flouton
Native to the western Mediterranean region, primarily in the Pyrenees and other mountains in northern Spain. this aromatic is a lovely presence in any garden.

In addition to its use as an ornamental plant, the flowers and leaves are also used as an herbal medicine, either in the form of lavender oil or as an herbal tea. The flowers are also used as a culinary herb, most often as part of the French herb blend called herbes de Provence, which I love to use! It really perks up many dishes.

Lavender essential oil, when diluted with a carrier oil, is commonly used as a relaxant with massage therapy. Products for home use including lotions, eye pillows including lavender flowers or the essential oil itself, bath oils, etc. are also used to induce relaxation.

As a natural and soothing aromatic it is one of my favorites and I always have it on hand.

These flower heads were digitally altered to create a whimsical fantasy through manipulation. Can you imagine the "heady" conversation the buds are having!
