LAVENDER – An amazing herb and essential oil

Posted on


Lavender is by far one of my favourite herbs. Not only is it beautiful but it has hundreds of uses. It is a fragrant aromatic, a relaxing herb, and it can be used in baking, lotion making, gourmet cooking, tea making, tinctures and much more.

Some of the Lavender essential Oil Properties are:
Antidepressant, Analgesic, Antiseptic, Cicatrizant, Expectorant, Nervine, Vulnerary

Lavender is especially beneficial to the respiratory tract in particular coughs, colds, influenza. Lavender eases breathing when lungs and sinuses are choked with phlegm and it defends system against airborne viruses. Lavender can relief stress and anxiety and it also is good for aches and panes and muscle stiffness and may also help with rheumatic discomfort and joint stiffness. The cicatrizant properties of lavender oil are beneficial to healing of wounds including all types of burns and even treatment of eczema, dermatitis, scabies and psoriasis. Lavender should be avoided in pregnancy, epilepsy and fever.

Lavender Essential Oil has so may uses. If you are interested in getting your Lavender Essential Oil and learn how you can use it – contact me now.
