Bulgarian lavender is a woody evergreen shrub, up to 1 meter tall, with pale green, narrow linear leaves and violet blue flowers. The entire plant is covered with oil glands, which are in the star shaped hairs that cover the plant. Lavender has been used since ancient times, and the Romans added lavender to their bath water, hence the name from the Latin lavare, 'to wash'. Differences in soil, altitude and temperature, precipitation and seasons contribute to subtle changes in the scent from one lot of Lavender to another. Lavendula angustifolia essential oil has a very strong, sweet floral scent, with a low camphoraceous smell.
Uses: Mix with henna powder for body art to help your henna release dye, or use for aromatherapy. Use about 10 mL essential oil with 50 grams powder.
