Lavender against Stress
The essential lavender oil is one of the most commonly used oils in aromatherapy because it has the unique aroma and numerous medicinal properties. The scent of lavender relaxes and soothes. When inhaling the essential oil, it acts fast as a sedative through fragrant receptors in the brain. Lavender also works as an antidepressant, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, diuretic and so on. Due to the wide spectrum of action, it is recommended as a mandatory part of every home pharmacy.
Lavender oil – the tenderest care for all skin types
Lavender oil is exceptional for the care of all skin types. The fact that it is safe to be applied directly on the skin, even undiluted, differs it from most of the essential oils. Only tea tree oil has such a feature. Of course, sensitive people should always use a small amount of diluted oil in the beginning for safe use. Lavender nourishes equally well dry, oily, mixed, mature, and sensitive skin. It has beneficial effect for skin diseases such as psoriasis, acne, eczema, wounds and burns. It disinfects the skin like alcohol, but without the burning and annealing sensation.
