Lavender I think is probably one of the most nostalgic of all fragrances, recalling childhood memories, bright vivid blue summer skies, Lavender bushes alive with bee's clumsily hovering from flower to flower, brushing the stems with their fat little bodies making the bush seem alive and stirring the scent to carry upon the warm summer air, this is what the fragrance of Lavender evokes for me.
Lavender is beneficial in other ways too. Essential oil of Lavender has antiseptic and anti-fungal properties it is used in the treatment of acne, psoriasis and other inflammatory conditions. It helps speed up the healing of wounds, cuts, burns and sun burn used also to sooth aching muscles, rheumatism and lumbago.
For many years it has been used to aid respiratory disorders such as throat infections,flue, cold, bronchitis and relieve general congestion.
Lavender essential oil helps aid sleep, two or three drops on your pillow at night has a beneficial effect on your sleep pattern as an alternative burn a Lavender candle two hours before going to bed. The scent released will give enough comfort allowing a restful night.
