The wonderful smell of dried lavender flowers

Here is a high-resolution free download of a close-up of dried lavender flowers, a Mediterranean herb used in aromatherapy for relaxation and de-stressing.

This soothing herb of heavenly scent and beautiful purple-blue colour is an old favourite both in the home, to freshen up laundry and make rooms fragrant, and in personal care and health. Lavender can help with dandruff and with insomnia, with fraught nerves and itchy skin.

To me, it conjures up lazy, hot summer afternoons in Tuscany with bees buzzing on and off the ears of ripe lavender flowers.
