Origins of Lavender
Lavender comes from the Roman word “lavare” meaning to wash. It was one of the most favoured aromatics used by the Romans in their daily bathing rituals. Both the Greeks and Romans burned lavender twigs as a room purifier to ward off the plague. It was brought to Europe by the Romans.
Description and Extraction Process
A shrubby plant with woody branches and long narrow leaves, it has purple-blue flowers on long spikes.
After cutting, the plants are dried and steam-distilled. The essential oil is clear to pale yellow in colour with a strong aroma.
Therapeutic Effects and Popular Uses
Its sedative and tonic effects make lavender great for balancing the nervous and emotional systems. Excellent for migraines. As an antiseptic it can be used for many skin conditions and infections of the lungs, digestion and urinary tract. Extraordinarily versatile.
It is commonly used in inhalation therapy, baths, room spray, massage, even in cooking. Use as a cold, calming compress, or place a few drops into boiling water and inhale for headaches and migraine. A warm towel wrap will soothe nervous exhaustion. A late-night lavender bath (especially with Epsom salts or even better, magnesium) will help to promote deeper, more restful sleep, which in itself has wide-reaching beneficial effects.
