Lavender essential oil is the most used essential oil in the world today, but the benefits of lavender were actually discovered over 2,500 years ago. Because of its powerful antioxidant, antimicrobial, sedative, calming and antidepressive properties, lavender oil benefits abound and it’s been used both cosmetically and therapeutically for centuries.
Lavender oil has a soothing and calming effect on the nerves and skin. When massaged into the scalp, it can improve blood circulation, promote hair growth and prevent hair loss. Additionally, it moisturizes the scalp and balances the production of oil in the scalp. It can relieve muscular and joint pain (especially caused by sports injuries), improve blood circulation and is beneficial for respiratory problems. It can also help to soothe acne, burns and bug bites.
