Healthy Living: Lavender

Life gets crazy sometimes. When the stress from work or classes starts to pile up it can feel overwhelming. Relaxation is something that we often take for granted, but it plays a vital role in keeping us happy and functioning during times of stress. Natural herbs and scents have long been used in calming mixtures to relieve stress and help with other conditions. Lavender is often the star of those remedies. 

The use of lavender has been recorded as far back as ancient Greece and Rome. Romans used this lovely purple flower as a perfume to scent their clothing and baths.

The scent of lavender promotes a sense of calm and helps aid in sleep and deep relaxation. It is often distilled into an essential oil which can be used in a variety of ways. Using lavender essential oil in aromatherapy can greatly help in reducing stress. 

Beyond smelling heavenly, lavender oil is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory making it perfect for healing irritated or acne prone skin. Because of this quality, lavender is an essential ingredient in many beauty products.
