Lavandula angustifolia Lavender Vera

 

This lovely Lavender Vera wand is at the perfect stage for picking and drying. After the dew has dried and before the hot sun hits, cut your wands and lay them on screens or hang them in groups in a cool dark spot to dry. Store in an airtight container for later use.

At one time Lavandula Vera was botanically called Lavandula officinalis. The officinalis refers to the designation as an official plant used in medicine. This term is no longer used in conjunction with Lavandula and has been replaced with the term anugstifolia. Vera is thought to be the original species lavender. However, the seeds that have been spread throughout the world, often have different colored flowers and slightly different chemical constituencies. 

Much of the Lavender Vera harvested for distillation is grown in Bulgaria. During June and July the fresh lavender sprays are harvested and the oil extracted to make Lavender absolute, a wonderfully fragrant and powerful yellow green liquid.
