Lavender is an incredibly powerful healing plant unmatched by modern pharmaceuticals, that has been used as an herb for thousands of years.
It was even recorded that field workers and perfumers of the Middle Ages survived the Black Death and other plagues due to this wonderful plant which protected them from the lethal bacteria. Amidst the aromatics, there are very few plant essence equaling its broad properties.
This pale purple flower stimulates the immune system, while working as an analgesic, soothing muscle aches, killing pathogens in the air, in nasal sinuses and respiratory airways, and even removing the sting of insect bites. In addition, modern studies of burn patients have confirmed that oil of lavender eases pain, enhances healing and prevents scar tissue from forming.
Not only does lavender have hydrating, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory properties, it is also a nerve tonic, treating anxiety, insomnia, depression, and restlessness that accompany immune stress and illness.
Interestingly, there are quite a few terpenes in Lavender [Linalool being the most abundantly found] which compliment certain cannabinoids to create the entourage effect and enhance benefits. I love the benefits from incorporating Lavender into my product formulas!
