Lavender | The oil of tension relief

Lavender can assist in letting go of pent up tension, it has a beneficial influence upon the respiratory tract, aiding deep breathing.

It has a supreme sedative effect making it a nervous system relaxant, whilst its soothing qualities make an excellent choice for calming the mind and body before sleep.

It is however often misused. The key is to ensure you keep the amount used to a small minimum, this method is called subtle aromatherapy and it can have a greater effect upon the mind and emotions.

Lavender can actually be quite stimulating when used in greater amounts and especially before sleep when our senses don’t need over stimulating. therefore splashing drops on a pillow is not as well served as a drop onto a handkerchief placed underneath the pillow.
