by Sherry Perez on June 13, 2019

Lavender is one of the most recognized scents worldwide, because of its floral, sweet and herbaceous scent. Comes from France with a botanical name of Lavendula Officinalis Hybrida widely use for aromatherapy because of its benefits.

Because of its fresh aroma that is a must for relaxing and calming it's also good for creating a balanced mind.

 

Fast Facts on lavender

  • Evidence does not yet support the use of lavender to treat depression, high blood pressure, nausea, menstrual pain, or eczema, among other conditions.

Treats Sleep Issues

If you regularly struggle with insomnia, apnea or restless sleep patterns, it can negatively impact your life, as suggested by a research published in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine. [4] By brewing a few lavender flowers in hot water, you can steep a wonderful tea that has been used to induce sleep and relaxation for thousands of years. This is closely linked to the flower’s impact on the nervous system, and can also help clear your mind of negative thoughts. It is commonly used in meditation techniques and its essential oils are used in aromatherapy.
