Lavender True Oil (Organic)
Lavender is an exceptional natural healer and makes a wonderful first aid all-rounder. It is great for skin care, repair and wounds, and deeply calming - good for restful sleep, and against emotional conflict and nervous tension.
Lavender is gentle enough to be applied directly to the skin, (for healing or to pulse points as a rescue response). Its gentle action makes it ideal for children and the elderly.
Lavender has been widely used for over 2,500 years. The Romans scented their public bathhouses with it and the ancient Egyptians included it in mummification. In Medieval and Renaissance Europe washerwomen were known as lavenders because they spread their laundry over lavender bushes to dry. Lavender has historically been promoted for its soothing, relaxing qualities and has been used to treat hyperactivity, insomnia, headaches, and sore joints. It was also used to help ward off diseases such as the plague and cholera.
Lavender is believed to act as a mild sedative and has been used to treat burns, bruises and insect bites.
It has long been considered a herb of love.
