Lavender is the most renowned and commonly used essential oil. Many also know it as the “mother” of all essential oils.
These are only some of the benefits of Lavender:
These qualities make Lavender amazing to relieve stress, insomnia, hypertension, muscle spasms and joint pain. It has a harmonizing effect on the nervous system and can inhibit sympathetic (fight or flight response) nervous system functions which is triggered by emotional or physical stress. Lavender releases the pent-up stress by exerting a sedative action on the sympathetic nervous system and exerting a stimulating action on the parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous system.
Lavender is also often used in skincare products due to their anti-septic, restorative and cooling properties.
