Lavender - The Oil of Communication & Calm
Lavender Essential oil has been used for over 2000 years, its uses date back as far as the ancient Romans and the ancient Egyptians, and it was also used in medieval and renaissance France.
Lavender was used to scent drawers, perfume the air and ward off infection and heal wounds. It was also recognized in Roman times for its antiseptic and healing qualities. The Ancient Greeks used lavender to fight insomnia and back aches. Lavender is one of the most popular essential oils on the market today, and it is used for so many different things. Lavender is commonly used in perfumes and soaps, household cleaning, candles, and food products.
Lavender is known for its antiseptic and antibiotic properties that can kill bacteria, alleviate the effects of bee stings and migraines, heal burns and ward off moths in clothing closets. The fragrance of lavender is also used for calming horses, promoting more profound and longer sleep and balancing emotions. Aromatherapy owes its existence to lavender. Essential oils bring healing and balance to the body and mind.
Lavender is purported to have anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antidepressant, antiseptic, antibacterial and antimicrobial properties and antispasmodic, analgesic, detoxifying, hypotensive, and sedative effects.
When the scent of essential oil is inhaled, the molecules travel up the nostrils to the olfactory bulb, which then transmits that info to our limbic system, also referred to as the 'emotional brain' — where emotions and memories are stored. That's how Essential oils can support our bodies both physiologically and psychologically!
