Lavender has been used since ancient times as much for its perfume as for its medicinal properties. Romans added Lavender to their bath water, hence its name derived from ‘lavare’, to wash. Herbalists regard lavender as the most useful and versatile essential oil for therapeutic purposes. Without a doubt if one were to choose only a single essential oil to keep in the first aid kit, Lavender would be the undisputed choice.

Lavender oil is well known for its nervine – sedative properties, and is useful for treating a variety of nervous and psychological disorders including depression, insomnia, migraine, nervous tension, hysteria and paralysis. As a sedative-analgesic it is very good for headaches and migraines. Lavender is often diffused in hospital wards to help dispel anxiety and aid sleep, and it is one of the safest essential oils to use for children.

Its antiseptic properties make it ideal for treating coughs, colds, catarrh, sinus, flu, wounds, ulcers and cystitis. Being a good antispasmodic it can be used to manage asthma; bronchitis responds well to Lavender in massage and inhalations. Lavender is helpful in the treatment of all types of pain – rub a drop onto the temples to treat headaches (Lavender is one of the very few oils safe to apply neat to the skin, though use in small amounts); use in a bath or massage for muscular pain and rheumatism. Lavender has both a sedative and a tonic action on the heart; it will help lower blood pressure and ease nervous tension and palpitations, while it has a stimulating effect for those with a weak heart, shortness of breath or cold extremities. As an emmenogogue Lavender is good for scanty menstruation, and may be used for period pains.

Lavender is commonly associated with treating burns and healing the skin, and can also help ease the associated pain and prevent infection. The oil has a balancing effect on the skin and can be used in general skincare for all types of skin, as well as in the treatment of dermatitis, exzema, psoriasis, boils and acne.
