Lavender (lavandula angustifolia)
Lavender oil can be found in all of our products as its benefits are multi-faceted. Often touted for its calming scent, lavender oil has shown to be a powerful ingredient in purifying both the body and the spirit. Below are three reasons why lavender oil is one of our essential ingredients:
1. Heightens mood
The most well-known benefit of lavender is its aromatherapeutic properties. A study in the International Journal of Neuroscience confirmed that lavender oil results in reduced anxiety, elevated mood, and increased sleep quality. It’s an overall relaxant that soothes the mind and body.
2. Stimulates hair growth
Lavender Oil is also beneficial for your hair. A Dartmouth College study revealed that lavender oil is able to stimulate hair growth, therefore making it a natural option for treating alopecia. Additionally, lavender oil is beneficial for strengthening and nourishing hair.
3. Treats skin
Finally, Lavender Oil is an all-around skin treatment for a variety of ailments. It has been shown to be a remedy for minor sunburns and minor skin wounds, due to its properties to heal, relieve pain, prevent scars, and act as an anti-septic.
