The lavender plant is aptly named after the beautiful color of its leaves. There are 47 different species of the plant with the leaves ranging in shades of violet, lilac, and blue. They grow best in dry, well-drained, sandy soil and are commonly planted in home gardens and on lavender farms. They don't need fertilizer or a lot of upkeep so they tend to grow in the wild as well because they spread from household gardens. In many countries there are lavender farms, where the plant grows in rows.

Lavender isn't just a beautiful plant (especially when grown on farms over vast landscapes), but it can also be good for your health and can be used in cooking. Try out lavender oil to harness the healing powers of this fragrant herb. It can also be used to repel mosquitoes and treat acne. Even though there are multiple benefits you can reap from this magic plant, the real beauty is seen when it is first being grown.

Lavender plants are hung from the ceiling to be dried out. They will eventually be used in edible products and to create oils.
