It is believed to be native to the Mediterranean, the Middle East, and India, with a history dating as far back as 2,500 years. In ancient times, lavender was known and used as a holy herb. Additionally, Lavender was often used to freshen up and give a light scent to a variety of personal items, such as clothes and hair.
