Lavender belongs to the Lamiaceae family and includes about thirty species that all originate in the Mediterranean countries. Its generic name "lavender" comes etymologically from the Latin gerund "lavare" (which must be washed) almost certainly to indicate how this plant was widely used in antiquity (especially in the Middle Ages) to cleanse the body.

Lavender is a small evergreen shrub which, thanks to its strength and robustness, is able to grow and adapt to different climatic and soil conditions. In some areas of southern Italy it grows as a spontaneous plant even in arid and stony soils. The lavender leaves, inserted on the stem without petiole, are lanceolate and of a greyish-green colour. Its main feature is that of producing very fragrant flowers collected in spikes located at the ends of long and thin twigs. The flowers can change color and aroma depending on the species.

The species we use for our products is Lavandula Hybrida, which is a sterile hybrid of Lavanda officinalis and Lavandula spica, widely used for the production of essential oils. This is because hybrids, having a faster vegetative development and larger inflorescences than the pure species, are much richer in substances from which essential oils are extracted. To obtain the essential oil, the flowering tops are used, from which a viscous dark green liquid is obtained by steam distillation, with an intense smell of grass and slightly floral. It is an oil that can be used in complete tranquility because it is not irritating and does not create sensitization phenomena.

In aromatherapy, lavender essential oil is used to calm the nerves, relieve stress and facilitate sleep (try putting a few drops on your pillow to help you fall asleep!).

In the cosmetic field it is particularly suitable for those with acneic skin and is also used for its soothing and healing effect, it can therefore be used to soothe skin reddened by insect bites or burns.

Lavender essential oil is a fragrance contained in many fragrances used to make cosmetic products of all kinds more pleasant.

Furthermore, the distilled water of lavender is widely used, also called hydrolat: it is obtained as a secondary product of steam distillation when the essential oil is produced. It has soothing, calming, refreshing properties and is also suitable for the treatment of impure skin.

Our lavender is born in the Marche region, in the Conero area. Since 1975 it has been cultivated with passion and love by Amelia Guglielmi Zanoli nicknamed "the lady of the lavender". The type of lavender that grows in these wonderful areas of the Marche region is the lavandula hybrida or sink. It is said that the saltiness gives the flower a strong and fresh scent, which the Greek botanist Dioscorides defined as "superior to any other".
