THE TRADITION OF LAVENDER WANDS

 

The first lavender wands appeared in Provence in the XVIII century. At that time, the “provençales” used to weave fresh lavender every summer. The wands where then placed in their cupboards and chests to perfume their linens and protect from moths.

The lavender wands where also part of the brides dowry, as a symbol of love and happiness. In Provence, the 46th wedding anniversary is celebrated with gifts of lavender.

Today, nestled in baskets or displayed in vases, colorful bouquets of lavender wands enhance your home and perfume your interior.
