Many people appreciate lavender (Lavandula angustifolia, or Lavandula officinalis) for its fragrance. The name lavender comes from the Latin root lavare, which means "to wash." Lavender may have earned this name because it was frequently used in baths to help purify the body and spirit.

Lavender oil has many benefits for skin care. Lavandula augustafolia is an evergreen shrub that produces bluish mauve flowers. Its native land is the Mediterranean area of southern France. The oil is made from the flowers and processed by a steam distillation method. On the skin, lavender oil tones and revitalises and is useful for all types of skin problems
