It was in the late 18th century, in Provence, that the first lavender wands appeared. This period coincides with the rise of the perfume industry in Grasse, where lavender, previously found wild and mainly used for its medicinal properties, was cultivated and distilled, producing an essential oil sought after for its olfactory qualities.

In addition to this essential oil production, lavender growers transformed this precious plant into artisanal objects. The lavender wand, handwoven from fresh flowers, emerged as one of these iconic objects. It found its place in wardrobes, delicately scenting linens while protecting them from moths.

The lavender wand also holds a deep symbolic meaning. Traditionally included in the bride’s trousseau, it is a symbol of love and happiness.

Through its history, the lavender wand bears witness to the rich cultural and artisanal heritage of Provence.
