Lavender – The Queen of Herbs
What makes Lavender an incredible herb with so many uses for all of us to enjoy?
Lavender has always brought me comfort and harmony. It has been a flowering plant that I have sat next to for hours watching the beautiful flowers attract so many other life, like bees and butterflies.
Children with much curiosity touch the violet flowers and bring the soft small petals to their noses for an introduction to peace and tranquility. Lavender takes me to another world, a world of calming peace that reminds me to appreciate the beauty of the Earth and be thankful for the miracles in life.
How often do you take time to discover new treasures of the Earth, like lavender?
The feel of moist soil through my fingers on a warm sunny day as I plant the beautiful purple flowers that not only bring me calming joy but an abundance of bees to our garden. The most regal of all herbs for me personally is the beautiful lavender plant with its delicate fresh fragrance that fills the air all around as the wind carries the scent of clean, fresh, floral notes to all areas of our yard. Not only do the bees benefit from the lavender but so do the butterflies, children, and our family as we use the clippings in our most favorite food and drink recipes.

The uses of lavender are limitless and beneficial to many as it is a plant itself rarely has any side effects with humans and animals.
