LAVENDER OIL  

 

For Foundation and Vitality  

 

 

 

 

Lavender Oil is one of the most popular essential oils used throughout the world.

It is believed that ancient cultures used lavender essential oil for medicinal and religious purposes, as well as for bathing, cooking and for scenting the air.

Lavender oil is most acknowledged for treating issues like stress, anxiety and depression; as well as headaches, migraines and insomnia.

 

Worldwide studies using inhalation methods with Lavender Oil confirm the reduction of anxiety, emotional stress and postnatal depression. Also demonstrated is dramatic improvement with sleep disturbances and reduced symptoms of insomnia, enhancement of moodiness and overall health. And those struggling with migraine headaches saw a significant reduction in pain.

Inhalation of an essential oil stimulates mental response in the brain; these stimulants regulate stress or calming responses such as heart rate, breathing patterns, production of hormones and blood pressure. The sense of smell triggers powerful emotional responses.

 

 

Allow Lavender Oil to facilitate the restoration of your vitality,

re-energize your emotional state and amplify your sense of self.
