Lavender Health Benefits
**Sleeping Beauty*** Lavender Benefits - We are a FAN
Lavender is most commonly used in aromatherapy by Natropaths who seek solutions to sleep and anxiety through natural means.
The fragrance from the oils of the lavender plant is believed to help promote calmness and wellness. It’s also said to help reduce stress and anxiety and aid in promoting a good night’s sleep. In times gone by, lavender was recommended for people suffering from insomnia or other sleep disorders. People placed lavender flowers in their their pillows to help them fall asleep and get a better night’s rest.
Today, aromatherapists use lavender to treat headaches and nervousness or restlessness. Massage therapists sometimes apply lavender oil to the skin, which might function both as a calming agent and as a sleep aid.
In Germany, lavender tea has been approved as a supplement to treat sleep disruptions, restlessness, and stomach irritation though for any underlying medical conditions, however I would suggest a GP first and foremost.
Our Lavender Eye Pillow gently combines our farm grown Lavender Flowers with Organic Buckwheat. Give the pillow a light wiggle with your finger tips to diffuse the oil in the lavender flower. It is made from Organic Cotton to gently place on the eyes and a pretty Peony Polyester Floral which can be placed in the freezer to chill.
