The Benefits of Lavender

8th Aug 2019

Not just a pretty plant, lavender is now one of the most popular essential oils in the world and for good reason.

Dating back as far as 2,500 years ago, lavender is believed to be native to the Mediterranean and India, often used to freshen up and give light scent to items such as clothing. Nowadays, it is used in many beauty products because of its powerful anti-oxidant and calming properties.


Lavender is perfect for those who are starting out using oils and looking to experiment because of its versatility and subtle effects. This multifunctional oil is known for helping with sleep, reducing stress and dermatologic uses.

According to the National Sleep Foundation, lavender can help to improve your quality of sleep and reduce anxiety and stress, which can be a saviour on nights when your mind is racing and keeping you awake. Commonly used to spray on bedding and pillows, it should help to give you a peaceful night’s sleep, so that you can wake up feeling refreshed and ready for the day ahead. Hand in hand with its anti-stress properties, lavender is also said to help improve your mood and give you a little helping hand to happiness on those down days.

Benefits of lavender

Lavender is also known to be great for dermatology purposes, helping to ease blemishes, eczema and skin inflammation by applying it directly to the affected areas of skin.
