The Lavender plant itself grows to 3ft and has purple-blue (lilac) flowers and star-shaped hairs that cover the plant. Lavender is known for its relaxing properties but has many versatile uses for therapeutic purposes. Bulgaria’s unique climate and soil types are particularly beneficial to growing high-quality lavender for essential oil. People have been using lavender as a perfume, air freshener, soap ingredient, and herb for cooking for hundreds of years.
