Lavender was a favourite bathing cleanser for the Ancient Romans and has been used to speed healing.  For centuries lavender bags were placed in linen drawers to keep moths and insects at bay.  Lavender water was popular in the Elizabethan and Stuart ages and was the favourite perfume to the wife of King Charles 1st.
