Aromatherapy is one field I like to occasionally dabble in. Its benefits are many and varied, soothing and healing. One of the truly remarkable things about essential oils is their ability to enhance mood and lift depression, as well as benefit a person physically.
I had purchased a bottle of lavender oil many years ago, and it became such a family favorite that having another one around was simply a must! So I thought I should share this wonder with all of you, may it calm you on the weariest of days :)
Lavender originates from France, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, England and Tasmania. Its flowering tops are the source of the essential oil. Essential oils are the aromatic substances extracted from the part of the plant that gives it its individual characteristics of scent, colour, and healing components. I like to think of it as the soul or the 'life-force' of the plant.
This particular oil is beneficial in burns, cuts and wounds, skin infections, skin care, acne, nausea, stress, headaches, arthritis, high blood pressure, muscular aches and pains, respiratory problems and insomnia to name a few.
It is highly anti-septic (as are all essential oils), anti-viral, anti-rheumatic, anti-spasmodic, anti-depressant, analgesic and sedative.
Coming to how I use it- as a cold compress, in diffusers, and light application on my forehead to aid sleep and get rid of stress headaches. It's a marvelous product, I cannot praise it enough! Few whiffs of this and I'm off to my happy place, relaxing in peace ^_^ Bliss..
