Lavender: Benefits, Uses and History

Lavender: Benefits, Uses and History

Lavender is an aromatic herb from the northern region of Africa and the mountains of the Mediterranean. It’s part of the mint family known for its beauty and powerful fragrance. Its name is derived from the Latin lavare, meaning “to wash.” Lavender has been commonly used to make soaps and clean clothes—the powerful aroma has been known to be helpful with repelling moths and other insects. The ancient Egyptians have even used lavender in their mummification process and as a perfume. 

Lavender is widely grown and used in the production of essential oils. It’s also commonly taken by itself or with other herbs as a tea. Lavender oil has been known to contain anti-inflammatory properties and has also been used as an antiseptic. Some studies show that lavender can help relieve digestive issues, such as nausea, vomiting, gas, upset stomach, and abdominal swelling. 

Lavender has also been used as a powerful sleep aid—some people put lavender in their pillowcases at night to help them sleep better, while others drink it as tea to ease restlessness and promote relaxation.
