The benefits of lavender
Since antiquity, true or fine lavender, also called officinal lavender, has been used by the Greeks, Romans and Egyptians for its medicinal virtues.
There are more than three hundred varieties of lavender. The lavender officinale is the most used and the most known; one collects it in Provence between July 15 and August 15.
Cultivated in the south of France since the 13th century, it has become a must in perfumery as well as in infusion, inhalation or massage remedies. Indispensable in the first aid and aromatherapy kit, it is now a reference in skin care and well-being. Moreover, lavender has excellent calming, soothing and relaxing effects. It is traditionally used for headaches, muscle tension and stress.
In aromatherapy we use its essential oil to bring calm, serenity and well-being. According to our aromachologist Patty Canac, true lavender “consoles us from our sorrows, it favors our creativity in zenitude. It “allows us to achieve wisdom in peace with ourselves. “.
It is also a precious ally in the fight against insomnia. By its calming virtues, it soothes the body and favors the relaxation of the mind which facilitates the falling asleep.
