Lavender is a native of the Mediterranean region, the Canary Islands and India.
In the ancient world lavender, as well as some other aromatic herbs, had a great religious, cultural and commercial significance. The ancient Egyptians cultivated lavender, which called Indian classes, in the sacred garden of Thebes. In 1922 lavender residues were found in the sealed urn with Tutankhamun’s fragrances, and their aroma was preserved for 3,000 years.
It is supposed that in order to ease the life of the land of the evicted Adam and Eve, God gave them useful grasses. Among them were rosemary and lavender – rosemary for maintaining the spirit, lavender for the delight of the soul. Another beautiful Christian legend claims that the charming aroma of lavender was given by the Virgin Mary herself in gratitude that a lavender bush dried the clothes of the little Jesus.
