Lavender

Perennial. Give it sun and well-drained soil. Use the flowers in soups, stews and desserts such as biscuits. Also used to make tea. Anti-bacterial. Use oil for headaches, massages, insomnia, or the plant for burns and stings. Dried flowers used in our lavender bags, sleep pillows and cosmetics - and also, as an insect repellent, in our lavender and moth-repellent sachets. It also goes well in pot pourri.

Lavender sp.

Historic:

“Usually put among other hot herbs, either into bathes, ointment or other things that are used for cold causes. The seed also is much used for worms.”
Parkinson
