LavenderThere are many properties of lavender, from the antiseptic and soothing (for burns and stings) to the evocative fragrance that is a common foundation ingredient in many complex perfumes. It is also suitable as a cooking ingredient and its vivid blossoming colour is a source of continuous inspiration for painters, photographers and romantics.
At a time when the world is so complex and busy, lavender represents a purity and a simplicity that is tangible and understandable by everyone.
Lavender has also dramatically stepped out of its old-fashioned association and has found a modern and very useful status through the increase of aromatherapy in everyday life. Lavender:
- helps to relax and calm, thereby reducing irritability, insomnia and panic attacks.
- It is an astringent and moisturiser which combined with its sweet smelling fragrance makes it perfect as a fragrant beauty product.
- Physically, it is first-aid in a bottle with its anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties, ideal for treating insect stings, cuts and burns.
