If you’ve ever been to Provence in the summer, you can’t really miss those huge purple fields full of lavender. To be more precise, these plants should be called lavandin. A hybrid strain that is planted there to make lavender oil that is mainly used in aromatherapy. True lavender usually only grows on mountain slopes and was already used by the Romans to make the bath water smell nice.
