Top Three Medicinal Uses Of Lavender

Lavender essential oil can be used around the home in many ways and it can be used in your beauty regime but more practically, it has well documented medicinal value too. There are many medicinal benefits and uses of lavender essential oil and our high-quality Jersey farm-grown oil can be used in any of the top three methods listed below.

Soothes the Nervous System

Lavender essential oil is known for its soothing effect on our nervous system. This can be capitalised on in a number of ways. It can be ingested as a tonic or used in vapour form for boosting the nervous system and helping to alleviate a number of common conditions. Lavender oil can help alleviate the pain of migraines, nervous tension or emotional stress and its refreshing aroma too can help settle nervous exhaustion and promote relaxation throughout the bottle. Lavender oil is also known for encouraging sleep and therefore it is regularly prescribed to treat insomnia.

Treat the Respiratory System

Lavender oil is included in a wide range of medicines and complimentary balms for helping to settle and soothe respiratory problems. Our high-quality lavender essential oil can be used as a vapour which can be applied to the neck, back or directly to the chest or inhaled. Respiratory disorders including something as simple as the common cold or as severe as asthma or bronchitis can benefit from the medicinal benefits of lavender oil. It can also be used to alleviate the symptoms of whooping cough, laryngitis, tonsillitis and influenza.

Care for the Skin

As well as being used regularly in beauty products because of its benefits for the skin, a lavender essential oil can be used effectively in the treatment of a number of skin conditions. It is believed to have both antifungal and antiseptic characteristics which means it can be very effective in treating a wide range of conditions from acne to psoriasis as well as wrinkles and inflammation to the skin. As one of our previous blog posts discusses, lavender oil is also fantastic for treating burns and wounds.

This is just the beginning of what lavender oil can do and it is also used to treat urinary disorders and provide pain relief. Our lavender oil is 100% pure and extracted by steam distillation from our own farm grown lavender plants ensuring a wholesome, organic product is available for each one of our customers.
