Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender essential oil is derived from the evergreen shrub, which produces lovely flowers above silvery-gray and green foliage. Lavender has been in use for over 2,500 years. Ancient Greeks, Romans and Persians loved the scent of lavender and sprinkled the flowers into their bathwater to help purify and wash their skin. As a healing agent, its uses were many. Lavender incense and potpourri were burned to calm nerves and treat sadness.
Lavender essential oil is one of the most traditionally used essential oils. Its elaborate molecular structure enables it to be one of the most diverse of all the oils. Studies show lavender oil has anti-inflammatory, antidepressant, antimicrobial, antibacterial and anesthetic properties, among others. It also has analgesic, detoxifying, antispasmodic, and sedative effects, which makes it a potent pain reliever and healer. Furthermore, it is non-irritating, non-sensitizing and non-toxic. Hence, it is safe for all skin types.
There are many valuable uses of lavender which include pain and inflammation relief. It reduces itchiness and redness due to eczema, dermatitis and insect bites.
