Recognized around the world for its refreshing fragrance, the lavender plant (Lavendula angustifolia) is a flowering evergreen shrub native to the Mediterranean region and has a long history as a healing herb. Romans scented their baths with it (in fact lavare means to wash in Latin) and the Tibetans still make an edible lavender butter to use as part of a traditional treatment for nervous disorders. The essential oil of lavender is widely used to relieve anxiety and to treat sunburn. It is a natural antiseptic and has astringent properties. It also helps overcome restlessness and difficulty in sleeping. Caffeine free.

Herbal teas with light, delicate blossoms or leaves require somewhat shorter steeping times and lower temperatures than other more hearty herbs. We recommend using 1/2 to 1 teaspoons of leaf per 8oz of near boiling water (180 to 200 F) and steeping 3 to 5 minutes. This provides a sweeter, better tasting brew while repeated infusions allow you to extract all the nutritional and medicinal benefits from the herb.
Herbal teas can be brewed in porcelain, ceramic, glass, or stainless steel but never in aluminum or other harmful materials. Be sure to cover the cup or teapot while steeping to prevent the loss of fragrant essential oils and other therapeutic and nutritional elements.
