7 reasons to love lavender

7 reasons to love lavender
  1. You'll get a good night’s sleep. A wealth of research supports lavender as being useful for treating insomnia and promoting a better quality of sleep.
  2. Improve your mood. Good news if you suffer with depression or anxiety, research has revealed that essential oil of lavender can be a calming mood-lifter. It's even used in dental waiting rooms to keep patients relaxed.
  3. Promote healthy skin. Researchers in Portugal and Turkey found that essential oil of lavender can help fight fungal infections of the skin and heal wounds faster.
  4. No scent clash. There are so many wonderful lavender-scented products available that you can use them in unison, with no danger of ‘scent clash’, and leave a calming floral waft in your wake.
  5. It’s patriotic. Once seen as the preserve of the French, an increasing number of British farmers are now growing lavender as a crop. So buying lavender products can support British farmers.
  6. Use it straight from the bottle. There's no need to blend it with a carrier oil. Unlike many other essential oils, it’s safe to apply lavender oil directly to your skin.
  7. It’s great value. Although used as an ingredient in expensive perfumes, lavender oil itself, and many toiletries made from lavender oil, are relatively inexpensive.
