Lavender tea

Like any herb, Lavender is full of gifts. Some we have discovered and enjoy while others benefit us without us knowing it. Lavender comes from the Mediterranean region, the Arabian Peninsula and Russia and is also grown in Europe, the United States and Australia.
Produces purple flowers, which contain high levels of essential oil. Lavender essential oil is recognized worldwide as a respected commercial product, with many medicinal and other uses.
It has very low toxicity, while it has remarkable antiseptic and antimicrobial action. Lavender flowers are very rich in nectar and attract bees and other pollinators. After cutting and drying, they are used as a raw material in the perfume industry.
Lavender is also grown as an ornamental plant, as it "steals" the show when it participates in flower arrangements.

In Greece we find it in Arcadia, Kilkis, Kozani, Kefalonia, Serres, Komotini and Samothrace.
