In ancient Rome, Lavandarius, or lavender flowers, were sold for close to 100 denarii per pound. This value equated to a month’s wages for a farm laborer or fifty haircuts from a local barber. Lavender held a special place in ancient Egyptian rituals, as it was commonly used in the embalming process to cleanse the departed loved ones with lavender-infused water. Over the course of thousands of years, lavender has found its way into an array of products, including balms, salves, perfumes, cosmetics, culinary creations, and various topical applications. Moreover, certain varieties of lavender oil have demonstrated antimicrobial and antifungal properties.

In this image, I wanted to portray the inherent elegance and aesthetic charm of the common Lavandula Stoechas, a common lavender plant.
