Lavandula angustifolia is a perennial evergreen, in warm winter areas, dwarf shrub 30 to 90 cm high and 60 to 90 cm in diameter. It has dense form and gray-green to green foliage. Its leaves are simple, slightly tomentose, linear to lanceolate-linear up to 5 cm and carried oppositely to square cross-section stems.
Its numerous verticillaster flowers appear on terminal spikes and are purple in color. Leaflike bracts are in an opposite arrangement below each whorl and usually are shorter than calyces. The purple-gray in color calyx is tubular, ribbed and hairy with shiny oil glands among the hairs visible with a hand lens.
Both leaves and flowers are aromatic because they contain essential oil which distills, however the essential oil extracted from its flower peaks is of superior quality.

Lavender Essential Oil Use
Lavender oil has been used and cherished for centuries for its unmistakable aroma and myriad benefits. In ancient times, the Egyptians and Romans used Lavender for bathing, relaxation, cooking, and as a perfume.
Lavender is an herb. The flower and the oil of lavender are used to make medicine.
Lavender is commonly used for anxiety, stress, and insomnia. It is also used for depression, dementia, pain after surgery, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support many of these uses.
In foods and beverages, lavender is used as a flavor component.
In manufacturing, lavender is used in pharmaceutical products and as a fragrance ingredient in soaps, cosmetics, perfumes, potpourri, and decorations.
Its calming and relaxing qualities, when taken internally, continue to be Lavender’s most notable attributes. Applied topically, Lavender oil is frequently used to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections. Add to bath water to soak away stress or apply to the temples and the back of the neck. Add a few drops of Lavender oil to pillows, bedding, or bottoms of feet to relax and prepare for a restful night’s sleep. Due to Lavender’s versatile properties, it is considered the must-have oil to have on hand at all times.
