In traditional medicine, lavender oil was applied to treating migraine, neurasthenia, cardiovascular disease, and even kidney diseases.
For many centuries, lavender was used as medicine for muscle pain and toothaches.
These days, lavender is well known as the best natural antidepressant and quite often used as an addition to treating emotional disorders such as depression, insomnia, anxiousness, and stress.
Lavender oil is also great for elimination of hormonal disorders and has a beneficial effect on pregnancy.
As one of the strongest antibacterial oils, it helps to relieve inflammation in skin conditions, including psoriasis, eczema and other forms of dermatitis, soothes burn pain and stimulates healing.
