Native to the mountainous regions of the western Mediterranean, the lavender plant has been a staple in holistic medicine for centuries. The name is thought to derive from either the Latin lavare ("to wash") or livendulo, which refers to its soft blueish colour.
Native to Australia and Tasmania, Eucalyptus globulus is also commonly known as "southern blue gum." With over 700 different species of Eucalyptus, this intoxicating and fresh plant has a richer and darker aroma. The Latin term globulous ("small sphere") refers to the shape of the fruits which grow on the stems.
Eucalyptol is the strongest and most prominent chemical compound in this variety. It is quite volatile, but in small doses, it provides a powerful cooling sensation. It is widely used in holistic wellness practice.
