Health Benefits of Lavender

Reduces Anxiety & Stress

Relieving stress can be achieved with Lavender from rubbing the oil on your temples or drinking a cup of lavender tea.  the natural organic compounds in the leaves and flowers release an oil which impacts the endocrine system to lower the stress levels in our bodies.  If you are feeling anxious, drop a few drops into a warm bath, breath the amazing scent while the oils act as an anti fungal treatment for any skin ailments as well as an anti-inflammatory treatment.  Lavender is also an antioxidant. 

Sleep Concerns

Insomnia or restless sleep patterns can have a negative impact on your life and outlook as well as productivity.   Brew a cup of lavender tea with the buds in hot water and honey, this is quite reliable to cure sleeplessness.  This is also used in meditation. 

“The scent of lavender increases alpha waves in the area of the brain responsible for relaxation,” explains Alan Hirsch, M.D., neurological director for the Smell and Taste Research Foundation in Chicago.
