Lavender Oil

Lavender essential oil is the most used essential oil in the world today, however the benefits of lavender were actually discovered over 2,500 years ago. The Egyptians used lavender for mummification and as a perfume. When King Tutankhamen’s tomb was opened in 1923, there was said to be a faint scent of lavender that could still be detected after 3,000 years. The Romans used lavender oil for bathing, cooking and purifying the air and in the Bible, lavender oil was among the aromatics used for anointing and healing.

Lavender is a powerful antioxidant and has antimicrobial, sedative, calming and anti-depressive properties. Because of lavender’s many benefits it’s been used both cosmetically and therapeutically for centuries.

Lavender is used as an ingredient in food, perfumes, teas, herbal medicines, skin care and hair care  as well as in the home for cleaning and first aid.

The most important health benefits of lavender include its ability to relieve stress, improve mood, promote restful sleep, aid skin irritation, prevent infections, reduce inflammation, eliminate dandruff, and soothe stomach upsets.
