BENEFITS AND USES OF LAVENDER
Lavender is known for its soothing properties and is used to relax and release tension. Due to a higher camphor content than Lavender, as well as the significant presence of cineole, extracts of Lavender have valuable anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. These components also improve circulation and help alleviate muscular or joint discomfort. The presence of linalool makes Lavender a beneficial ingredient for insect repellents – both for prevention as well as for its irritation and itch-relieving properties. With a number of therapeutic benefits to its name, including antiseptic, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and analgesic properties, Lavender is a beneficial ingredient for various skin conditions, as well as promoting general skin and hair health.
