Lavender is a common herb from the mint family. It is a short, bushy plant with light green stems and elongated purple blossoms. Lavender is widely used as a fragrance, but also has many healing properties such as: promoting healing, reducing swelling, easing headache pain, and soothing insect bites and stings. Its early use as a medicinal drug for the gout, has been discredited in modern times.
