Health Benefits of Lavender Essential Oil

By Madhusudhan Tammisetti

The lavender essential oil has been used for 3,000 years for its therapeutic benefits and properties. Lavender is a commonly used plant worldwide, and it's native to hilly Mediterranean areas and northern Africa. It was a product of the aristocrats in ancient times. Lavender was used in ancient Egyptian embalming and mummification practices.

It was used in fragrances and medicines during the time. The lavender essential oil was traditionally used in massages to promote healing. This oil is not only good for the skin but it's also added in shampoos to improve the well-being and look of the hair.

The health benefits of the lavender essential oil include reducing anxiety and stress, encouraging restful sleep, alleviating pain, treating respiratory disorders, treating bladder issues, boosting immunity, fighting cancer, supporting digestion, treating diabetes, and supporting cardiovascular health.

Lavender is believed to have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities, making it useful for treating insect bites and small burns. Aside from that, lavender essential oil offers a slew of health benefits, and several studies have shown its effectiveness in treating a number of disorders.

For Diabetes

Lavender oil may help you fight diabetes' devastating consequences. A study found that rats exposed to lavender had less damage to their liver and kidneys. Also, the rats gained less weight. The antioxidant effect of the oil is more than that of Vitamin C.

Sleep Disorders

Sleep problems affect the majority of the elderly, and even some children suffer from insomnia. Many studies were conducted to see whether lavender oil might help with sleep problems. The findings demonstrate that when they substituted their medicine with lavender essential oil, just by sprinkling a few drops on the pillow, they slept well. Furthermore, this oil has calming characteristics, and specialists often recommend that insomniacs cease using their current medications.

Stress and Anxiety 

Anxiety and stress became widespread health problems among both the young and the elderly. The lavender essential oil may treat anxiety nerve issues. It may also be used to treat migraines, depression, headaches, and stress. It also boosts brain activity. The lavender oil is also often used to treat insomnia since its energizing scent helps relieve restlessness and nerve fatigue. According to research, people who smelled oil before taking a test did better since their cognitive function improved and their mental tension and anxiety dropped dramatically.

For Digestion

Poor digestion and intestinal problems may lead to a slew of health problems. Lavender essential oil aids digestion by allowing food to move around in the gut. The oil also increases the production of stomach juices and bile. Colic, stomach discomfort, vomiting, and gas, may all be treated with it.
