Therapeutic Uses, Benefits and Claims of Lavender
Lavender is perhaps best known for its calming and soothing effects.

There is evidence that it may slow the activity of the nervous system and therefore promote relaxation, improve sleep quality and bring about emotional balance.

For this reason, it is often used in combination with other herbal remedies as it treats physical symptoms with a nervous element, such as tension induced headaches, heart palpitations, or stress related digestive issues.

Lavender’s calming effect on the nervous system has also made it a valuable herbal remedy for the treatment of insomnia.

Traditionally, lavender flowers were stuffed into pillows to help restless people sleep and today it is a common ingredient in baby bath soaps to promote restful sleep.
