Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender, Lavendula officinalis, extracted from flowering tops of the lavender plant, has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti fungal, and anti-septic properties. Lavender is believed to stimulate the immune system to promote healing and ease inflammation. Lavender tones the skin and is useful for acne, oily skin, burns, sunburn, wounds, eczema, psoriasis and insect bites.
In hair care, lavender helps balance oily or dry hair and scalp, soothes irritated scalp and stimulates the hair follicles to help foster hair growth. Lavender is often paired with rosemary in hair care formulas. Their synergistic properties are great for hair care.
Aromatherapy Properties: relieves tension with its soothing, calming and harmonizing effect on the nerves. It is effective for headaches, migraines and insomnia. Its floral and woody fragrance is great for stress relief and general relaxation. Lavender is one of the few essential oils that can be applied "neat," meaning directly to the skin without diluting. Many aromatherapists suggest a spritz of Lavender water on bed linens or a dab of Lavender essential oil on the wrist for a relaxing and soothing sleep. Lavender essential oil aromatherapy should not be used in early pregnancy.
