Lavender has long been loved and has an interesting history. The Romans added Lavenderj flowers to their bath water, infusing the air with the intoxicating oils. Lavender e.o. was made famous by Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, who studied the healing power of essential oils. His studies led to the publication of the book Aromatherapie, and also popularized the term "Aromatherapy" for the study of essential oils.
