Lavender is the most widely used essential oil in aromatherapy, particularly for its relaxing and antiseptic properties. It is a calming and stabilising oil and is good for many ailments such as headaches, muscular aches and pains, skin conditions, PMT and irritability.
The plant name is derived from the latin 'Lavare' - to wash, probably from its use to cleanse wounds.
Lavender is best known for its relaxing properties, try placing two drops on a handkerchief by your pillow at bedtime.
