Lavender, that fragrant purple bush, can be grown in any place that boasts of fertile soil and sun-kissed surroundings. While Provence in France leads the regions where lavender is grown best, Britain is not to be left behind with its lavender regions. The sun-drenched Mayfield, Cotswolds, Somerset, Yorkshire and Hitchin are all home to tantalising lavender fields, producing tons of essential oils used in producing a variety of lavender-inspired products.
Before the onset of commercial lavender farms found in many parts of the world, lavender was a flourishing flowering plant with origins in Africa, Europe and Asia. Today, lavender exists in over 450 different varieties. With horticultural technology, hybrid lavender production is fast becoming a way to increase the plant’s varieties further. It’s no wonder many have found the benefits of lavender in therapeutic gift sets to infused tea.
