History: The Latin name of lavender is Lavare, which means “to wash”, due to its scent which has a particularly clean aroma. Lavender oil has been used for centuries. Ancient Persians, Greeks, and Romans added the flowers to their bathwater to help wash and purify their skin. Phoenicians, Arabians, and Egyptians used lavender as a perfume, as well as for mummification – mummies were wrapped in lavender-dipped garments. In Greece and Rome, it was used as an all-around cure, while in Medieval and Renaissance Europe, it was scattered all over stone castle floors as a natural disinfectant and deodorant. Lavender was even used during the Great Plague of London in the 17th century. People fastened lavender flowers around their waists, believing it will protect them from the Black Death.

The health benefits of lavender essential oil include its ability to eliminate nervous tension, relieve pain, disinfect the scalp and skin, enhance blood circulation and treat respiratory problems. Lavender is calming, pain relieving, and anti-spasmodic. Uniquely, it is both a sedative and a stimulant so it relaxes without making you groggy. It also helps to reduce fever. And it encourages menstruation, when there is blockage. It calms the nerves and emotions and brings them into balance. It is insecticidal and was historically used as a moth repellent. If you have a minor burn or sunburn, apply lavender and the pain will subside, the tissue will repair, often without scarring.

PRECAUTIONS

Oil Specific: None known. Lavender is one of the few essential oils that can be applied directly on the skin without a carrier oil to dilute it. While those with sensitive skin should use a carrier oil, to prevent sensitization, those with hardier constitutions can get away with applying it neat to the skin.
General: Consult a physician before use if you are pregnant or under a doctor’s care. Avoid contact with eyes and sensitive areas. Keep out of reach of children. Do not use undiluted on skin. For external use only.
