Lavender tea – Indications and benefits of this infusion

by Dianna Leon

When we hear the word “lavender”, we immediately remember the perfume that has been so popular for a long time. But few people know that lavender is the same thing as lavender ! This medicinal plant is a shrub with beautiful blue-violet flowers, measuring from 30 to 80 centimeters and has a penetrating and very aromatic smell – the main characteristic of lavender. It has been known for so long that even the Greeks and Romans used it in their baths, and it also played an important role (the main one, in fact) in the expansion and development of the art of perfumery and cosmetics in Europe; later, it would be used during World War II to clean soldiers’ wounds.

Possessing a characteristic as strong as its aroma, lavender ends up going a little unnoticed when it comes to teas. The lavender tea is full of benefits they deserve more recognition.
