Most people are familiar with Lavender and its distinct aroma because of its vast use in candles, oils, soaps, creams, home decor, gardens, teas, and even desserts. It's touted as the bearer of peace and calm but it has way more to offer than just that.
Lavender, or Lavendula Angustifolia, is native to France and the Mediterranean. In ancient Egypt, it was used in the mummification process. It is in the mint family and prefers dry, sunny, and well-drained, sandy soil, and can be pretty particular about having its own space. Lavender essential oil, used in diffusers or in a carrier oil, is one of the most commonly used oils.
We love Lavender as a natural anxiety reducer and a mood lifter (let’s face it, the world could use more of that), and as a sleep aid for our little ones (can I get an “Amen”). It can help to calm a nervous stomach, lessen the tension headaches from long, stressful days, shoes away bugs, soothes irritated skin, helps in the disinfecting and healing of wounds. On top of all that, Lavender's benefits extend to our animal friends.
