As a gift lavender signifies luck or devotion. It is known for its comforting and calming properties and few other herbs can rival its usefulness. As an herbal medicine lavender is used to soothe and relax. Oils in lavender can treat hyperactivity, depression, insomnia, bacteria, fungus, and airborne molds. Lavender is also purported to help cure migraines and motion sickness. And it was recently discovered to increase circulation.

Historically lavender has been used for perfume, bathing, cooking and scenting the air. The Romans most likely provided the root name (either lavare--to wash or livendula--livid or bluish) from which we derive the modern name. Mary anointed the feet of Jesus. (Referred to as spikenard in the Bible) The Queen of Sheba offered it to King Solomon as a gift. Around 600 B.C. lavender was carried to France and is now common in France, Spain, Italy, England, Austrailia and more recently the United States (California, Washington and Texas). In Medieval and Renaissance Europe the washing women were known as "lavenders" because they used lavender in the washing and sometimes dried their washing on lavender bushes. History is filled with stories of lavender use. Make lavender a tradition in your family!
Seven Oaks Lavender Farm has a variety of lavender/lavendin, largely of the French variety as they are more aromatic. These include Grosso, Provence, Fred Boutin, and Croxton's Wild. We also grow Twickle, Hidcote and Seal. Spend some time in the field in lovely Fauquier County, Virginia.
