Lavenders are a genus of 39 flowering species of the mint family. The native range extends across the Canary Islands, North and East Africa, Southern Europe and the Mediterranean. The flowers yield abundant nectar from which bees make a high-quality honey. In its culinary use, Lavender lends a floral and slightly sweet flavour to most dishes. Only the buds contain the essential oil of Lavender, from which the scent and flavour of lavender are best derived.
