July - Lazy summer days filled with Lavender
Lavender has been used for more than 2,500 years by many different cultures as a perfume, a cure for different ailments and even part of the mummification process. It also discourages moths so you can put a pouch in your cupboard and replace that mothball smell with something much nicer!
In Ancient Greece it was called “nardes”, “nard” or “spikenard”, named after the Syrian city of Naarda. It was used for everything from insomnia and aching backs to curing insanity.
