A LITTLE HISTORY...
The word lavande, French for lavender, is derived from the French verb "laver" or to clean, which might come from the Italian word "lavando" (the action of cleaning), which could go all the way back to the Latin word "lavandaria" (laundry to be washed). The word entered the English language from old French "lavendre" around 1265. This etymology suggests that men began very early to use lavender to scent newly washed laundry. Bags of dried flowers are traditionally stored in cupboards to keep moths away and to perfume the wardrobe. It's sometimes called "port-bonheur des armoires" in French, or the cupboard's lucky charm.
