Lavender (L. angustifolia and others) is a shrubby flowering bush native to the mountainous regions of the western Mediterranean.

Known for its ability to calm and promote sleep, lavender has been found to depress the central nervous system (CNS) in a manner comparable to pharmaceutical tranquilizers.

In addition to the use of lavender flowers in a brewed tea, many Mediterranean dishes use this soothing herb as part of Herbes de Provence (Provençal herbs).
