Lavender is a herb many of us love, but did you know it is also an incredibly powerful herb, much reverred for its healing properties?
After failing to find a natural skincare product that was gentle on his sensitive skin, founder Pisan Chowvalit travelled to the south of France to study aromatherapy. It was here that he discovered the natural healing powers of herbs, botanicals and certified organic essential oils.
The health benefits of Lanopearl’s lavender organic essential oil include its ability to eliminate nervous tension, relieve pain, disinfect the scalp and skin, enhance blood circulation and treat respiratory problems.
Lanopearl sources its lavender organic essential oil from one of the finest lavender farms in France, whereby the oil is extracted from the flowers of the lavender plant, primarily through steam distillation.
Lavender organic essential oil has numerous health benefits. Some of which include:
Skincare: The benefits of lavender organic essential oil for the skin can be attributed to its antiseptic and antifungal properties. It is used to treat various skin conditions such as acne, wrinkles, psoriasis, and other inflammatory conditions. It is commonly used to speed up the healing process of wounds, cuts, burns, and sunburn as it improves the formation of scar tissues.
Hair care: Lavender organic essential oil is very effective on lice, lice eggs, and nits and is an excellent cleaning agent.
Insect repellent: The smell of lavender organic essential oil is potent to insects such as mosquitoes, midges, and moths. Simply apply some oil on your exposed skin when outside to prevent bites. Furthermore, if you do happen to be bitten, lavender organic essential oil has anti-inflammatory qualities that will reduce the irritation and pain.
Respiratory disorders: Lavender organic essential oil is widely used for various respiratory problems including throat infections, flu, cough, cold, asthma, sinus congestion, bronchitis, whooping cough, laryngitis, and tonsillitis. The oil can either be used in the form of vapor or applied on the skin of the neck, chest and back. The stimulating nature of lavender organic essential oil can also loosen up phlegm and relieve congestion associated with respiratory conditions, speeding up the recovery process and helping the body eliminate phlegm naturally.
Sleep: Lavender organic essential oil induces sleep which has made it a common recommendation for the treatment of insomnia.
Nervous system: Lavender organic essential oil has a calming scent which makes it an excellent tonic for nerves and anxiety issues. It can also be helpful in treating migraines, headaches, depression, nervous tension and emotional stress. The refreshing aroma removes nervous exhaustion and restlessness while also increasing mental activity.
As with many essential oils, pregnant and breastfeeding women should avoid using lavender essential oil. It is also recommended that patients with diabetes refrain from using it. Some people may suffer from nausea, vomiting and headaches and those with very sensitive skin may have an allergic reaction, hence always test a small amount before use.
