Lavender is a genus of flowering plants in the Lamiaceae family that includes 47 species. It is widespread in Cape Verde and the Canary Islands, as well as throughout Europe, northern and eastern Africa, the Mediterranean, southwest Asia, and India. Lavender has been used in traditional medicine and cosmetics for ages.

Lavenders symbolise purity, silence, dedication, serenity, grace, and peacefulness. Purple is a regal colour that also signifies elegance, refinement, and richness. The colour is also linked to the crown chakra, which is the energy centre connected to greater purpose and spirituality.
