MISSING PROVENCE

when you think of France’s Provence region, you may imagine driving or cycling past vast, bright fields of fragrant lavender, standing out in vibrant purple rows against a quaint Provencal farmhouse in old stone. This image is actually quite realistic: France has a long and rich history of lavender production that stretches back hundreds of years. The aromatic flowering plant, which is actually a member of the mint family, has been used since at least the medieval period to make traditional products from perfume and cosmetics to syrups, honey, and potpourris. It has also long been appreciated for its medicinal powers, and for its proven ability to calm nerves and aid in restful sleep.
