Benefits of Lavender

Lavender has been thought for centuries to enflame passions as an aphrodisiac, and is still one of the most recognized scents in the world. The German Commission E commended lavender for treating insomnia, nervous stomach, and anxiety. The British Herbal Pharmacopoeia lists lavender as a treatment for flatulence, colic, and depressive headaches, and many modern herbal practitioners use the herb to treat migraines in menopause. In Spain, lavender is added to teas to treat diabetes and insulin resistance.”

Lavender has the following properties:
Especially beneficial to the respiratory tract in particular coughs, colds, influenza. Certainly eases breathing when lungs and sinuses are choked with phlegm.
Defends system against airborne viruses.
A refreshing note to a tired mind – lavender has been named as one of the most useful of the essences for the relief of anxiety and stress.
Good for aches and pains and muscle stiffness and may also help with rheumatic discomfort and joint stiffness.”
Uses for Lavender

Lavender can often be used in many different forms:
As a dried herb to make a relaxing herbal tea (Chamomile can be added too) by steeping in hot (not boiling water) for a few minutes and adding honey
In a tincture to help promote relaxation and sleep
Adding the dried herb to homemade buckwheat pillows or sleep masks to help promote relaxing sleep
To sooth sunburns or other burns, I add a few drops of the essential oil to a bottle of cool water and spray on burns to offer relief. The dried herb can also be brewed in to a strong tea and sprayed on instead.
A strong lavender tea can be cooled and used as a scalp rinse to help prevent dandruff
Adding a few drops of lavender essential oil or a cup of strong brewed lavender tea and a cup of epsom salts to a bath helps relax sore muscles.
For headaches, smelling lavender and peppermint oils or rubbing lavender oil into the temples often helps
Lavender can be infused into vinegars for use in cooking or as a skin toner (diluted)
The essential oil or lavender infused oil in homemade lotion bars, lotions, whipped body butter and more
Lavender essential oil can be used topically to help with acne or skin irritations

Simmering dried lavender herb in a pot of water with some citrus peels for a natural air freshener.


For dried petals, use 2 to 4 teaspoons of leaves for 2 cups of water that has been heated to just before boiling -- 194 to 203 degrees Fahrenheit OR 90 to 95 degrees Celsius.

Allow the tea to steep for two to three minutes. You can sweeten rose tea with some sugar or honey or drink it plain.
