While many already enjoy the scent of lavender and may purchase lavender scented products, you may be surprised to find that lavender has many healing benefits as well.
When pure lavender or lavender essential oils are utilized, it can promote healing such as soothing anxiety or helping with insomnia--but these are the more well-known uses of lavender. Some less known healing benefits of lavender are that it can promote hair growth and also aid in healing wounds. Lavender is versatile in it’s healing benefits...it’s just a bonus that it smells so wonderful.
Below we put together some of the healing benefits of lavender. We hope you enjoy.
One of the most common types of mental health disorders is anxiety, affecting 40 million adults in the United States each year. It’s likely that you know plenty of people who suffer from anxiety, and you may even struggle with it yourself. Lavender can be a great way to help calm anxiety.
While there are people who use prescribed medication for their anxiety disorders, there are also others who choose not to or are unable to. Fortunately, while it is not a replacement for medication, the soothing and calming properties of lavender can help those who need a little extra help relaxing. Studies has shown that “lavender inhalation can significantly reduce anxiety levels.”
Through aromatherapy or the topical use of lavender, people relax and and see a reduction of anxiety levels. One great way to try to calm anxiety is to take a warm soothing shower to loosen up and relax. You can use our Lavender Goat Milk Soap for a gentle lavender scent as you take your shower and work on other ways of reducing your anxiety such as deep breathing.
As essential oils have gained the spotlight over the last decade, most people have heard about lavender as a tool to promote sleep. It’s one of the most well-known uses of lavender essential oil.
Many use lavender oils, delivered through a diffuser while they sleep to help improve sleeplessness or insomnia.
Lavender may also aid in falling asleep faster, as well as better quality sleep, by using an essential oil diffuser while you sleep. In addition, to start getting your mind and body relaxed and ready for sleep you can use Rosemary and Lavender Goat Milk Lotion to moisturize and infuse your senses prior to getting in bed.
Heal Your Wounds
Did you know that lavender can aid in healing wounds? It’s something that has been practiced by natural practitioners for along time, but the rest of the world seems to be catching on as well.
One study by researchers at Indiana University reported that ”skin tissue treated with the chemical compound, beta-caryophyllene -- which is found in lavender, rosemary and ylang ylang, as well as various herbs and spices such as black pepper --showed increased cell growth and cell migration critical to wound healing.”
Of course, with something as serious as wound healing, you’ll want to consult with a medical professional. However, this is just further proof of the phenomenal healing benefits of lavender.
Soothe Dry and Problematic Skin
The soothing properties of lavender are frequently used to help with dry skin as well as skin conditions such as eczema. Whether you suffer from the dry, itchy, flaky symptoms of eczema or the redness and inflammation of psoriasis, you may want to give lavender a try.
Topical use of diluted lavender essential oil can be beneficial to some with these types of skin conditions. Alternatively, we offer Rosemary and Lavender Goat Milk Lotion to help soothe the skin which includes lavender’s healing benefits as well as the gentle moisturizing properties of goat milk.
Helps With Hair Loss
One less commonly known healing benefit of lavender is that it can actually promote hair growth. Unfortunately, as we age many of us will find that our hair starts to thin. There has been some indication that lavender may be able to help.
A 2016 study found that lavender oil applied to mice made them grow more hair and that their hair also grew thicker and faster than normal. Although we would love to see a study using humans, the best part of natural healing is that most methods, such as using lavender in any form, have little to no negative side effects.
