Lavender was founded in the Mediterranean, Middle East and India around 2500 years ago. Lavender is used for therapeutic, medicinal and practical uses, such as; disinfectants, antiseptics, anti-inflammatory and aromatherapy. It wasn't until the 1970's that Lavender became a popular choice for culinary purposes- given its mild, peppery floral flavour.
