Lavender Tincture - Lavendula angustifolia Tincture
Single herbal tincture made with dried flower of Lavendula angustifolia (Lavender).
Lavender (Lavandula) is a genus of dwarf shrubs belonging to the Lamiaceae family. These plants are often planted in gardens for their purple flowers and wonderful scent.
An important reason for growing lavender is the lavender oil extracted from the purple flowers. This oil is widely used as a fragrance in cosmetic products such as soap and perfume, and also in aromatherapy.
Lavender flowers are used in cooking, especially as part of Provencal herb mixtures. They can be used fresh or dried to flavor various dishes, such as French cheeses, carrots and tomatoes.
