My sister and brother-in-law just got back from a bike trip in France and brought me some lavender oil from the lavender farms in Provence. Not only do I love the scent, but I enjoy the health benefits!
The health benefits of lavender essential oil include its ability to eliminate nervous tension, relieve pain, disinfect the scalp and skin, enhance blood circulation and treat respiratory problems. The Latin name of lavender is Lavare, which means “to wash”, due to its particularly clean aroma.
Give it a try. It's extremely relaxing and definitely provides mood enhancement.
