French scientist René Gattefossé was among the first to re-discover lavender in the early 1900’s. And has been one of the most popular oils ever since that time. Lavender is the strongest and most versatile of all the essential oils and there are many awesome benefits to using lavender oil with its sweet, flowery aroma. Lavender is gentle, non-toxic and non-irritant. It has both soothing and reviving properties with a pleasant and calming scent that has numerous health benefits.
However, it is also a natural antiseptic, antibiotic, anti-depressant, sedative and de-toxifier. It stimulates the immune system and also stimulates the cells of a wound to regenerate more quickly.
Lavender has been used as a medicinal plant for thousands of years, either in the form of fresh or dried flowers or as an essential oil. Although it is grown all over Europe, the best lavender comes from its original area – around the mediterranean.
