This garden herb is regarded for its characteristic fragrance in soap, and potpourris, but it is also an important medicinal herb.

Originally, the oil from the flower was used to help protect cloths and stored linens from moths. It is also used as a scent in air fresheners.

Oil distilled from the flower has applications as a stimulant, tonic, headache relief, and for relief of intestinal gas. It is also used to quiet coughs and disinfect wounds.

Applied as a compress, the oil provides relief from neuralgic pains, rheumatism, sprains, and sore joints.
