Lavender oil has various healing qualities and a breathtaking fragrance. It used to be that almost all colognes contained lavender oil. But today its uses are being rediscovered in an effort to recognize its multiple benefits.Lavender oil is an essential oil, which is normally applied with a carrier and then massaged onto the skin. It helps in stimulating the production of gastric juices, aids digestion, and augments intestinal mobility. Hence, it is helpful in treating flatulence, nausea, dyspepsia, colic and diarrhea. Its calming effect is famous for lowering blood pressure and reducing hypertension. It also helps solve various muscle- or joint-related problems such as relieving pain, reducing muscular tension and treating muscular aches, lumbago, rheumatism and sprains. It is famous for treating flu, throat infections, whooping cough, bronchitis, sinus problems, asthma, and congestion.
There is a hybrid of pure lavender and spike lavender called ‘Lavandin’ which is also extensively used, as it generates twice the amount of oil compared to other lavender species, but is not as fragrant.
